About Distance Education at IU South Bend

IU South Bend offers several distance education (DE) courses; including fully online and hybrid/blended courses for undergraduate, graduate, and certificate programs. Admission to the university is required and tuition is the same for classes held on campus. Throughout the year, new courses are developed with several offered every semester.

Students already admitted to the university may go to OneStart to find distance education course listings. Course descriptions and requirements are posted by the instructor. On-campus attendance for hybrid/blended courses is usually included in the course description.

While there are clear deadlines to meet for each DE course (submitting assignments, taking exams, etc.), students have found it convenient to complete the assignments and course work in their free time.

Before registering for a DE course, students are encouraged to take the Student Readiness Survey found at The self-assessment is meant to help students understand what is required/expected of them as well as what they can expect from a DE course. 

Visit the Center for Distance Education website for up-to-date information about our programs and student information.

About the Indiana College Network

The Indiana College Network (ICN) is a cooperative service of Indiana’s colleges and universities and their educational partners. It is operated by the Indiana Higher Education Telecommunication System (IHETS), one of the nation’s foremost state educational technology organizations. IHETS was established by the Indiana General Assembly in 1967, and under its guidance a statewide higher education leadership committee created the Indiana College Network in 1994, making ICN the first such virtual university consortium in the country. All members are accredited by the North Central Association (NCA) Higher Learning Commission. High school programs are accredited by NCA’s Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement.

Through the ICN, Indiana colleges and universities work together to help students learn about and enroll in the wide range of programs and courses available at a distance. The ICN process has as its ultimate goal the transfer of courses from one institution to another. Distance learning provides a tremendous opportunity for those whose obligations or schedules prevent them from realizing their educational dreams. ICN member institutions are experienced in helping distant students. All pay close attention to assure that distant students receive quality instruction. They offer individual courses as well as complete certificate and degree programs for students from middle school, high school dual credit, undergraduate, graduate school, and beyond.

Any public or private university or college may be an ICN member. Those actively participating include Indiana State University, Indiana Tech, Indiana University and its regional campuses, IPFW, IUPUI, the various Ivy Tech Community College campuses, Purdue University, Taylor University Online, University of Southern Indiana, and Vincennes University.
