Online Courses & Non-Degree Certifications
The Path to Your Degree
Online courses are offered every semester, and they typically run for 7½ or 15 weeks. Fully online, these courses can be taken remotely, without the need for on-campus visits.
We currently offer over 1,000 fully online courses for credit towards numerous degree programs.
Affordable, non-degree, online continuing education programs allow you to learn new professional skills at your own pace, anytime, anywhere.
Whether you're looking to grow in accounting, business, or energy, or expand your skillset in design, programming, or technology, there's an online certification for you.
Around the Clock Support
All online courses at Sam Houston State University are designed with you in mind. Faculty add a wealth of content to enrich the digital learning experience. All courses are supported by our SHSU Online Support Desk, who is available around the clock!
