Indiana University South Bend offers several types of online courses for undergraduate and graduate degree as well as certificate programs.

While students are not physically on campus when taking an online course, they still need to meet mandatory deadlines for assignments, exams, group projects, etc. For hybrid/blended courses, they are required to attend on-campus classes during assigned dates and complete course requirements online.

Students are strongly encouraged to complete the IU-Ready Student Readiness Survey. As a self-assessment, it is meant to help understand what is required/expected as a student, and what is expected from an online or hybrid/blended course as well as from the instructor.

  • Online All [OA] | 100% of instruction is provided through asynchronous online education in which the student is not bound by place or time
  • Online Interactive [OI] | 76% to 99% of instruction is provided through online education.
  • Hybrid, Traditional [HY] | 26% to 75% of the instruction is provided through online education. The remainder of the instruction is provided through traditional face-to-face instruction
  • Hybrid, Distance [HD] | 26% to 75% of the instruction is provided through online education. The remainder of the instruction is provided by distance education used to support synchronous interaction between the instructor and student
  • Distance, Other [DO] | 76% or more of the instruction is provided by distance education used to support synchronous interaction between the instructor and student

The Office of the Registrar posts courses offered during the semester; descriptions and requirements for each of these courses are included in Class Notes. 

Admission to the university is required before taking an online course; a course fee is added to the tuition for online and hybrid/blended courses.

Through the IU Online Class Connect (IUOCC) students from IU campuses (IU Bloomington, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis [IUPUI], IU East, IU Kokomo, IU Northwest, IU South Bend, IU Southeast) may take fully online courses at any IU campus offering those courses, allowing for seamless credit transfers. At IU South Bend, online courses are also offered (for our students) that are not in IUOCC. 

IU Online serves as the portal for students interested in taking online courses from any IU campus. At IU South Bend, online degree and certificate programs are added frequently.
