Why Choose ASU?

"What we are really providing is an opportunity for anyone—located anywhere, without constraints—to have access to the educational opportunities of a great research university and all of the faculty that we have assembled." —President Michael Crow


At ASU, how you learn online is effective, flexible and smart. What you learn online is the same content from the same excellent faculty who teach on our campuses.

We wrap our state-of-the-art technology around our internationally renowned faculty to reach and engage students all over the globe in a truly meaningful way. The result? Our students are an integral part of a New American University.

ASU students who learn online connect with the full university experience: interaction with internationally recognized faculty, access to collections from ASU's eight award-winning libraries, an alumni network tens of thousands of members strong, and membership in a community of thousands of students pursuing their degrees. And the research demonstrates that students who learn online perform the same—if not better—than a traditional classroom.
