The Associate of Arts, Bachelor of Arts, Master of Arts, Graduate Certificate, and Post-Master’s Certificate programs through Online Learning are designed to serve students who desire to pursue coursework online at a Catholic college. There is no general residency requirement for online students. All A.A., B.A., M.A. and certificate programs can be completed entirely online.
Technical Requirements: Students should have access to a reliable computer and Internet connection throughout their coursework. Because the learning management system, Populi, and the synchronous conferencing systems (which professors may use from time to time to engage students in lecture content or to present guest speakers) are web-based, no special software is necessary. However, professors may require Microsoft Office Suite products, such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, or OpenOffice. It is the student’s responsibility to purchase or download these programs if and when necessary. Any synchronous sessions offered by faculty are optional for students to attend live. Populi can only run on the latest versions of Google Chrome, Firefox, or Safari Web Browsers.
Holy Apostles maintains a student help desk for questions concerning Populi, the learning management system. The help desk is administered by Mrs. Jennifer Arel, who may be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that students need basic computer skills since Holy Apostles does not teach these skills.
