Online Learning for Graduate Students

Online courses offered at the graduate level at Defiance College are developed and delivered with the same dedication to superior learning, engagement in understanding, active leadership, and service as face-to face courses. 

In the Masters of Business Administration program (MBA), courses are hybrid and meet bi-weekly on campus. This allows for flexibility for working professionals to take advantage of the program. Some courses are also offered in a 100% online format.

To ensure the academic integrity of courses, programs, and degrees, the following verification of student identity is required:

  • Secure login and pass code for Moodle. This is received after completion of a required online orientation program in Moodle. The orientation familiarizes students with resources, support, and information regarding online learning at Defiance College.
  • Students must show DC ID or driver’s license to camera when required in course syllabi.
  • Faculty may require physical pictures of spaces where exams are taken via camera.
  • Faculty may require attending a licensed site to verify identity and take the exam online in that space. This may incur an additional change if required.  This will be stated in the syllabus provided on the first day of class.
