Getting Started

Online education gives you the opportunity to advance your learning without having to come to the Troy campus. The online courses are conducted entirely through the Internet, allowing you to receive assignments, submit coursework, and interact with your professor and other students via your computer. The courses are primarily asynchronous, which means you don't have to be at your computer at the same time as others. You will spend much of your time reading and responding by sending messages within the online classroom environment.

To get started simply follow the steps below. If you are already enrolled in a TROY online program, visit one of our Current Students sites.


1. Need some information?

You can quickly get answers to most of your questions on our Frequently Asked Questions page.


2. How online learning works

Before you apply for your program of study please complete the Orientation module to see if online learning is for you.


3. Find a degree program

To view our degree programs visit our degree programs page.


4. Review the admission requirements

The admission policies of TROY are designed to meet your needs. Most applicants who have a high school diploma or the equivalent can be admitted and register for undergraduate courses. In most cases, neither transcripts nor test scores are required at the time of admission. By the end of the first semester, a student who plans to earn a degree at TROY must make sure that official transcripts have been sent from each institution previously attended.
