Student Experience

Empower the Way You Learn

At Rasmussen University, we understand each student learns differently and should have options on how to complete their education. We offer a variety of learning options that are supported by career services, library resources, trained mentors, experienced tutors, personal student advisors and industry-experienced faculty. Based on the program you choose, you can learn in online courses, traditional classrooms or a blend of both. Online courses may offer another option of being completed at your own pace or by following an instructor's set schedule.

We are dedicated to building a more robust learning community. Through Campus Connect, students from multiple campuses are able to collaborate in a unique and interactive way. Rasmussen University courses can include hands-on experience in virtual labs, on-campus labs, simulation labs, field experience, project assessments and interactive sessions with faculty instruction. This flexibility offers each of our students the opportunity to have the college experience that helps them thrive.

On Campus & Online

Take Control of How You Learn

You need a degree program with options that fit your lifestyle and learning style. At Rasmussen University, we offer a variety of fully online and blended online and on-campus programs to help you reach your goals. On-campus courses offer hands-on instruction and carry the extra benefit of one-one-one instruction with other students and faculty.

Flexible, affordable online courses with resources and support are crucial for most of our students, and even fully online students have access to all campus resources and support. Live interactive sessions with faculty and peers, learning through real-world projects, virtual labs and equally rigorous academics give you the experience of on-campus learning with the benefit of learning online from the comfort of your home.

Student Advisors

Every student is an individual with a different set of obligations, ambitions and goals. For that reason, we assign each student with a personal advisor who serves as a primary contact for guidance and resources. Your advisor will work closely with you to develop your My Academic Plan—a personalized roadmap for your entire degree timeline. Your advisor can also assist you with transferring credits, financial aid, preparing your quarterly schedule, tracking grades and answering general questions.
