Distance Learning

The Distance Learning program of the Biggio Center is committed to making distance learning work for Auburn University students and students in our community enrolled in certificate and non-certificate programs. The Biggio Center team can help faculty propose a new distance learning course. There are a variety of distance courses for both undergraduate and graduate students offered each semester at Auburn University. The Dietary Manager Program is a non-degree/non-certificate program that is offered via traditional distance education.
