The online programming at Baker College has been unanimously approved by the United States Distance Learning Association (USDLA) to retain its Quality Certification status. The USDLA certifies institutions and educational providers who meet its 90+ Quality Standards for distance learning.
In the 2020 annual review of its online programming, Baker College was commended by the USDLA for its commitment and passion to ensure a quality distance education program for administration, staff and students. The organization's feedback to the College indicated, “The USDLA Board acknowledges and appreciates the College’s thoughtful preparation in establishing its direction-setting priorities and is honored to be working with a College that is a role model for other institutions. As fellow distance-learning practitioners, we take pride in the accomplishments of the College and its faculty and staff who work to serve students at a distance.”
Baker College offers more than 75 academic program options for both undergraduate and graduate degrees through its online or online/on-ground degree programs. An early adopter of online educational resources, Baker College has been offering its students remote learning options since 1994.
“It is our goal at Baker to ensure our distance learning students are given unfettered access to a quality educational experience,” said Dr. Lesa Louch, President of Baker Online.
In reviewing Baker’s annual report, the United States Distance Learning Quality Standards Certification Team agrees that Baker is continuing to deliver on its promises. According to the USDLA documentation, “The Team reviewed the Progress Report and enthusiastically and unanimously agreed to recognize continued Quality Certification status for Baker College.”
Congratulations to all of the hardworking Baker Online team members and online students who made this recognition and certification possible!
