What location is more convenient
than your own home?

Ferris offers select programs in an online format so you can move ahead without moving all over town.  We offer many certificates as well as bachelor degree-completion programs and master's degree programs. 

In addition to our many programs which can be completed fully online, we also have some programs which have the added feature of some face to face instruction. Our Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning and Refrigeration degree, Technical Education (Pro-Mo-Ted), and Master's degree in Business Administration all provide the opportunity to have the best of both worlds...a majority of the coursework online, blended with some face-to-face traditional classroom time, to give you an opportunity to meet others in your program and get to know your faculty instructors!

Find out what technology you will need for online courses and programs.  You want to make sure you have what is needed to be successful in online courses, including the right hardware, software, and connection speed.

The Online Readiness Tutorial must be competed before you can register for your first online course. This experience will walk you through the technical skills needed to be successful in your online class.  Just checking out the idea of online classes? You can take the tutorial as a guest.

Begin the Online Readiness Tutorial here.

Although we recommend every student take the tutorial, if you have already been successful in online courses at Ferris, then there is an option to submit an orientation waiver.

If you are a resident of the United States and from a state other than Michigan, please review additional information related to out-of-state students on our state authorizations page.
