Getting Started

Please take a few moments to explore these links for information on the types of courses Mizzou Online offers. You also can view the computer hardware and software requirements for online courses as well as course delivery modes.

Most of our online courses, especially those within degree programs, are semester-based, meaning there is a specified start date and end date to the course and there are assignments due at specific times throughout the semester.

Fall semester runs from late August to mid-December; spring semester runs from late January to mid-May and summer session is from early June through late July.

Taking an online semester-based course will enter you into a "virtual classroom," allowing interactive discussions with your instructor and classmates. It is important to access your online site on a regular basis to meet course requirements.

University of Missouri is unable to accept online students from certain states; or in some cases, unable to accept online students in certain programs due to state regulation of distance education. Learn more.
