You don’t have to quit your full-time job or even rearrange your schedule.
You can earn a prestigious graduate degree or extend your professional skill set by enrolling in the courses, certificates, and graduate degree programs the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences offers by distance education.
These extensive offerings are a hallmark of our dedication to lifetime learning and new teaching methods.
These online courses are just as innovative, experiential and rigorous as all the other courses our faculty members teach. All our distance programs must meet the strict standards for quality set by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. They employ the best practices available for electronically delivered instruction.How to enroll
If you’re a student at Texas A&M University, you can search for and enroll in a distance course on the Howdy portal just as you would with your other classes. To see the courses we currently offer, select the term, then one of our subjects and set attribute to “distance education.”
Several of our certificate programs do not require admission to Texas A&M. With these programs, you apply directly to the department offering the certificate.
Below is a general description of what distance course numbers you should choose and what costs will be associated with that course number. Before you register for courses, be sure to check with your advisor that you chose the best distance course numbers for your workload. Find your advisor’s contact on our page for Distance Programs. You can also contact student business services for more information regarding fees.
If you are an on-campus student, you should register in distance course sections numbered 599. These will cost roughly the same amount per credit hour as your other classes.
If you are a Texas resident studying off-campus, you should register in distance course sections numbered 700-719. Some on-campus fees are waived, but you pay some additional fees.
If you are not a Texas resident, you should register in distance course sections numbered 720. You will pay several fees per credit hour that do not apply to on-campus students taking traditional classes. Your costs include a teaching fee to replace state tuition. Much of the extra cost goes to supporting our efforts to offer distance education.
