Distance Degree Programs

Complete your bachelor’s degree in one or more of our distance education programs. 

Our online and hybrid degree-completion programs are designed for students who already have the equivalent of their first two years of college completed. In most cases, transferring at least 24 college credits is sufficient to begin a degree program. Students without college credits are encouraged to earn them on-campus at BSU, or at another Minnesota State college or university for the best transfer to BSU. BAS programs require transfer of technical credits. Click each option below for more information.
