Distance Education Applicants
Distance education (APOGEE) students follow the same procedures as the on-campus graduate applicants.
However, make sure to select the right version of the program if you’re applying for distance education. On the Graduate School’s application:
- The distance education designator for graduate programs in Computer Science and in Aerospace, Civil, Computer, Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering is “APOGEE” (a program of graduate engineering education).
- The distance education designator for the Master of Health Information Technology is “online.”
- There is not a unique distance education designator on the application for Engineering Management or a graduate certificate program.
