Learning Environment

With help from faculty, staff, and your fellow students we provide a learning environment that will help you succeed in your studies. Become part of the Southern Polytechnic learning community where you can engage with the faculty teaching your courses, the engaging course formats and our student services.

Faculty Teaching

Faculty in our online programs are hired and reviewed via the same standards and processes as our on-campus programs. Our online courses are reviewed and managed via the same academic departments as our on-campus courses. In over sixty years as an institution, Southern Polytechnic has a long term commitment to teaching both practical and theoretical skills necessary to meet tomorrow's challenges. Southern Polytechnic programs are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, with some programs achieving additional accreditation from their respective fields.

Engaging Courses

We are continually seeking to improve our online courses and academic programs. Southern Polytechnic programs set high expectations for students. As part of the SPSU tradition, we seek to provide opportunities for students to collaborate, communicate, and solve real-world problems in our courses. Faculty teaching online courses are encouraged to encourage student involvement in the course, provide opportunities for interaction and communication, as well provide course content in diverse formats.

SPSU Community

As a Southern Polytechnic student you will be part of our learning community. We provide a wide range of student services for our students including advising, career, library, technical support, as well as access to our student organizations. We have many active student organizations, some of which are associated with national or professional organizations.
