ULM Online

Course Offerings

ULM Online courses are offered in 8-week sessions. We believe this will help you progress more quickly within your individual degree programs.  Research has shown that it is much easier to balance 2-3 courses over an 8-week period than to balance 4-5 courses over 16 weeks.  These options will allow you to immerse yourself within the subject matter and complete the courses at an accelerated rate.  We are hoping that if you did not feel comfortable becoming a full-time student due to juggling school work and life responsibilities this option may make you more comfortable and help you complete your degree in a timely fashion.
