Academics and Support

Our ability to deliver a high-quality, online undergraduate curriculum is central to our decision to continue to be online for the Spring.

A vibrant and engaging digital experience

We are confident that Simmons students will continue to have a positive digital experience. Like the Fall, our faculty developed a virtual campus for the Spring, featuring  hundreds of online courses, including small group discussions and project-based learning. The courses offer a high level of student-faculty interaction and are designed for high-impact educational practices and excellent learning outcomes. In addition, as we did in the Fall, we will offer robust digital undergraduate academic advising, student support, and career education, along with co-curricular activities.
