iCollege Enrollment Procedure
Once accepted into an academic program, students will receive an admission letter with instructions to access different systems in the college such as Blackboard and Google. To register for courses they must complete the Course Request Form (PDF).
Registration opens prior to the term start period on the dates below and will close on the Friday prior to the Course Start Date (CSD).
Confirmation of Enrollment & Contact Information Validation
Students who successfully register for a course offering will receive an email confirmation to their email address of record.
Intensive courses are offered either through a blended model or by distributed learning (DL) for students around the globe.
The eResident format uses a blended model in which students and faculty engage in both online and resident activities that ensure high quality interaction and feedback, student learning and assessment, and academic rigor. Each offering of five (5) weeks consists of four (4) components: PREPARATION, SEMINAR, SYNTHESIS, and ASSESSMENT.
Distributed Learning (DL)
The Distributed Learning (DL) format engages students and faculty virtually in preparation, seminar, synthesis, and assessment over 12 weeks via Bb. Students enrolled for certificate/graduate credit must complete an end-of-course assessment typically consisting of a substantive paper or project that allows students to demonstrate their mastery of the intended learning outcomes. To receive credit for a course, students must be actively engaged virtually in every DL lesson as assigned by faculty. Assessments are due no later than the Monday following the 12th week, as specified in the schedule of course offerings. See the iCollege Schedule of Course Offerings for beginning and ending dates of courses.
Effective the 2011-2012 AY, all iCollege eResident and Distance Learning Courses award 3 graduate credit hours. Courses taken by students in other colleges through the NDU electives system are awarded 2 graduate credit hours for eResident courses and 3 hours for DL courses.
