Brief Summary of ProposalThis proposal is to request that we can offer the B.S. in Postsecondary Technical Education on-line. Students would be able to transfer all of their general studies and techncial course work from other appropriate institutions, completing the last 32 hours on-line here at The University of Akron. This is the same program content we are offering to LCCC as well as on campus. We wish to also continue to offer our face-to-face and hybrid offering of courses and add the fully on-line program offering.
