All Kinds of News for December 06, 2017
Telos U has partnered with Utah Valley University (UVU) and is now recognized by their accrediting body as a distance education campus for the university. This designation allows Telos U to provide credit-bearing courses from Utah’s largest university on our campus. Starting in January, students will have the option to take all of the courses required for an associates degree from UVU at Telos U.
Classes on campus will allow Telos U to provide needed support to students who may need guidance to successfully navigate university level courses for the first time. As they progress through the program, they will develop necessary study habits, understand how to utilize available supports, and gain confidence in their ability to be successful students at the university level. As they work with their support team at home and at Telos U, many students will also take courses at UVU’s main campus located in Orem, UT as they pursue more than 80 baccalaureate programs. These courses will also transfer to other colleges and universities throughout the nation.
These courses will be taught in person by professors provided to us by the university or through live, interactive broadcasts using Cisco’s Tandberg system, commonly used for concurrent enrollment with the Utah Education Network. Students will be able to ask questions and engage the professor and classmates with either system.
