St. Bonaventure is moving into a more robust offering of fully-online programs.  It is our intention to allow our traditional, residential students to take “some” of their courses from St. Bonaventure online.


For those of you that offer both traditional and online courses, do you limit the number of online courses your traditional students can take?  If so, what is the limit?


Thank you.

Why would you try to limit online courses for anyone? Will your online course be less rigorous then face-to-face courses?


Until recently, I managed the online program as the CIO for Texas A&M University – Commerce where online credit hours have grown at a  rate of 20% +for each of last three years with a healthy 32,000+ credit hours offered during 2012. We did not restrict our residential/traditional students – the discussion never came up.


Wish you the best with growing your online program.
