RU Ready for a Community That Sees Your Potential?
At Rasmussen University, we understand each student learns differently and should have options on how to complete their education. Start the next chapter in your education with a community of support—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 degrees are everywhere, but we have over 20 years teaching and designing online education. Discover how our online education better prepares you.
Our robust learning community can help give you the support and confidence you need to achieve your true potential. Your courses may include hands-on experience in virtual labs, on-campus labs, simulation labs, field experience, project assessments or interactive sessions with faculty instruction. Everything you’ll need to have the college experience that helps you 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.Discover more about online learning
