Distance Ed/Off-Campus Programs has new name

SIU Extended Campus is the new name for the university’s Distance Education and Off-Campus Programs unit. 

Gayla Stoner, director, said the change better represents delivery options for transforming education. Students have more flexibility and access to the university’s high-quality degree programs.  The unit includes online programs and courses, special sessions that start in the summer and winter, as well as Access SIU, and the many off-campus and military locations.   

Access SIU, which is expected to pilot this summer, will offer learning experienced modules and is designed to allow non-degree seeking students to take exams for credit.
