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.

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.
These Flex Choice® Learning Options Could Save You Time and Money
Flex Choice is designed for students who have jobs, who support families, who live life. From credit for prior learning to self-directed assessments and competency-based education, Flex Choice adds flexibility to your schedule and is a more affordable way to receive credit by demonstrating what you know and can do.
Credit for Prior Learning
Your job and life experiences count with us. Past college coursework, military transcripts, course waivers and industry certifications all maximize your credits and reduce overall costs. To learn more about credit for prior learning and transfer credits, visit our Transfer Policy page.
With Flex Choice, you can get credit for what you already know. These interactive, self-directed assessments are taken independently. If you prefer, you can get one-on-one guidance from an academic coach, and support materials are also provided to help you brush up. At $99 per assessment, you'll save money and time.
Rasmussen University is a national leader in competency-based education. CBE prioritizes your learning over time spent in a classroom, giving you greater control in balancing work and life with college. Do you already have knowledge and experience in a certain area? Do you want to skip ahead while the rest of the class covers the basics? Our project-based CBE courses are paced for you and are accessible anytime, anywhere. Plus, you'll have faculty support to ensure your success.

Every student is an individual with a different set of obligations, ambitions and goals.

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.
