The University at Buffalo offers distance education sections of certain courses. All distance education sections are designated with a campus of “virtual” in the course schedule. For information on a specific distance education course, please contact the offering department.
If a course requires specific equipment or skills, students must have access, in advance of registering for the course, to information about any hardware and software requirements and prerequisite skill level. Students enrolled in distance education courses will have access to services traditionally provided in person; i.e. libraries, labs, academic advising, career services, financial aid counseling, personal counseling, disability services, and other student services as appropriate.
All existing UB policies, i.e. grading, course evaluation and admission criteria, apply to all activities bearing UB academic credit, including distance education.
