WebMAcc

The WebMAcc is a 30-semester hour program with 100% of the coursework being delivered online. The program follows a cohort model with intakes in the Fall and Spring semesters. To help ensure our students’ success and to help them stay on track in the program, we use a team-based approach to online learning. Students are placed on teams comprised of four to five students with whom they will work throughout the six semesters. This team-based method of learning provides students with a “safety-net” as teams move through the program together motivating, helping, and cheering each other on toward graduation.
