Online Programs

The primary reason students choose our online degree programs is that they can get the same exceptional education that campus students receive, but with a greater degree of flexibility.

  • The SFU Difference

    SFU faculty connect with students through the Canvas course management system, which includes discussion forums, on-demand lecture presentations, streaming video, group collaboration software, and other integrated software appropriate to individual classes.

    Here's why online learning  could work for you:

    • Online programs make it easier for you to balance time between coursework and your personal or professional schedules. Attend the "classroom" from anywhere with internet access.
    • Course materials are often delivered in several different formats, creating a lively and engaging environment for learning: lectures, interactive activities, and more.
      SFU's professors are accessible through many online channels including discussion boards, chat rooms, email, and sometimes videoconferencing.
    • Our driven online graduate students go on to fulfill leadership roles in healthcare and business -- and they carry their Franciscan values with them.

  • Attention Prospective Online Students Residing Outside of Pennsylvania
     According to higher education regulations, Saint Francis University and its online/distance education courses and programs must be authorized in certain states prior to offering those courses or programs to students residing in those states. Prospective students residing outside of Pennsylvania should consult the University’s State Authorization web page to determine their eligibility for admission to our online programs or enrollment in an online course. 

    Important Note: If you are considering an academic program that leads to a professional license or certification in your state, it is highly recommended that you first seek guidance from the appropriate licensing agency in your home state before beginning the academic program located outside your state.
