New Charter University focuses on online learning, with all classes delivered via distance education. This innovative academic platform allows working adult students to incorporate their knowledge and learned experiences with self-paced instruction and students have 24/7 access to course materials. Exams can also be scheduled to meet the flexible demands of each student.
Faculty “coach” students and provide one-on-one instruction. In fact, most instructors spend an average of 32 hours per week just in communication with students. In addition, Student Advisors provide assistance with academic programs and progress, along with answering questions regarding other university practices. New Charter allows prospective students to preview the online learning environment prior to commitment.
Students can pursue associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees. New Charter University, through an articulation agreement with Patten University, awards a 60-credit regionally accredited Associate’s degree in General Studies or students can choose to complete the 20-course Associate of Science in Business degree. The Bachelor’s program includes a 120-credit Bachelor of Science in Business degree with an optional concentration in Management/Leadership. 12-course Master of Business Administration programs focus on concentrations in Finance, Health Care Management, and Management.
Prospective students are first provisionally admitted and then accepted upon the initial five step application process.
