Antioch University Distance and Extended Education

AU Distance and Extended Education

Welcome to Antioch University Online and Extended Education!

We are humbled and excited by your decision to join us. Through our online and remote programs, we endeavor to uphold the vision of our founding president, Horace Mann, when he said “Education then, beyond all other devices of human origin, is the great equalizer…, the balance-wheel of the social machinery.” While Mann could not have imagined how education would become accessible to the masses through technology, we believe strongly in bringing the great equalizer to those who would not otherwise be able to benefit from it. Whether you seek to enhance your skills, change careers, or pursue personal enrichment, Antioch University is here to facilitate a transformation in your life. And now the journey continues!

Technology Competency Requirements

Students in this program participate in online learning activities organized within small- and large-group learning communities. Antioch University Online and Extended programs utilize both 100% online and hybrid learning environments, and therefore, in addition to having the traditional learning skills, students are expected to have the following basic technological skills upon entrance into the program:

  • Skill in accessing the Internet and using an internet browser and a search engine
  • Skill in basic word processing and spreadsheet application
  • Skill in sending and receiving electronic mail
  • Skill in sending, receiving, and making changes to a word processed document

Individuals who have little or no experience with these technologies will benefit from additional skill development in these areas prior to enrollment in our program.

Computing Requirements

All students are required to have a computer and Internet access. For students who need to purchase a computer to meet these requirements, the costs may be covered through your financial aid package. Please contact financialaid.auo@antioch.edu for further information.
