Distance Education Program

Underwood University offers its programs through Distance Education, as well as in-person. Underwood’s Distance Education Program is approved by the Georgia Nonpublic Postsecondary education Commission (GNPEC), and Underwood is a member of the National Council for State Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA), allowing UU to offer its Distance Education Program in 49 states (apart from California), the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.

Features of the DE Program include:

  • The same high-quality education and degree programs as its traditional, in-person programs, without the need to physically attend class at a UU campus. Credit awarded for an online instructional course is equivalent to that of a traditional, on-ground course, and the degree awarded at the end of an Underwood University Distance Education Program is the equivalent to a degree awarded to a traditional student at the end of a traditional program.
  • Programs delivered through Populi, Underwood University’s Student Information System (SIS)
  • Admission to a degree program in the DE Program are substantially the same process as admissions to Underwood’s traditional programs
  • DE students have the same rights, responsibilities, and access to services as traditional students, insofar as possible. DE students have access to Student Services and all Library services and resources.


NOTE: UU’s DE Program requires that students have regular access to a PC or Mac with high-speed internet access, preferably using the latest OS updates (Windows 10 or 11; or MacOS 10.14 Mojave or later).
