About the Program
This program is offered by the Great Plains Interactive Distance Education Alliance (GP-IDEA).
GP-IDEA is a consortium of universities that have come together to offer fully online degree programs. Each university brings a unique strength to the multi-institution academic programs.
In a multi-institution degree program, you apply and are admitted at one university; enroll in all your courses at that university; and graduate or receive a certificate from that university. However, your online courses are taught by the best faculty in the discipline from several universities.
