Online education gives you the opportunity to advance your learning without having to come to a campus. The online courses are conducted entirely through the internet, allowing you to receive assignments, submit coursework, and interact with your professor and other students via your computer. The courses are primarily asynchronous, which means you don't have to be at your computer at the same time as others. You will spend much of your time reading and responding by sending messages within the online classroom environment.
To get started simply follow the steps below. If you are already enrolled in a TROY online program, visit one of our Current Students sites.
