It’s important to note that Online Live courses are not prerecorded, nor are they a livestream of a classroom session being held on campus. When you choose an Online Live course, you’ll be assigned to a virtual classroom made up of 20 students or fewer. You and your fellow classmates can expect to have the full attention and support of your instructor for the entirety of each semester.
You can view a full list of programs that offer core courses in the Online Live format on our Full Program List page. Please note that even if your program isn't listed as Online Live-eligible, most of the prerequisite, general education, and elective courses offered at Baker College are available in the Online Live format.
As an Online Live student, you’ll enjoy the same high-quality curriculum as our Baker Online learners. The primary difference with Online Live is that classes meet at set times in a virtual conference room, allowing students and faculty to interact, engage, and discuss in real-time. Baker Online courses, on the other hand, do not meet at a set time, allowing for a more flexible schedule.
Tuition rates are the same across all learning formats, which means Online Live classes are just as affordable as our on-campus and Baker Online courses. You can learn more on our Tuition and Financial Aid page.
Our virtual classrooms are accessible to anyone with an internet connection and a computer or smart device. While some courses may require the use of a microphone for online presentations and communication, most systems purchased within the past two years already have these features built-in.
No, you don’t have to commit to the Online Live format exclusively. In fact, we encourage you to mix and match different course types to fit your schedule and learning preferences.
We’ve offered quality online programs since 1994, so we understand exactly what kind of support online students need to be successful. Online Live is an innovative way to learn that combines the flexibility and convenience of online formats with the relationship-based learning of a traditional classroom environment.
You can mix and match Online Live classes with different types of course formats to create the type of academic experience that works best for you. Selecting more than one format will help you learn how to communicate, collaborate, and problem solve in a variety of different ways—just like you’ll be expected to do in the workplace.
As a not-for-profit college, your education is our bottom line. That’s why we offer a variety of financial aid options and one of the most affordable tuition rates around.
With a convenient evaluation process that allows you to transfer up to 90 credits toward a bachelor’s degree, it’s no wonder Baker College is Michigan’s number one private school for transfer students.
At Baker College, you’ll find small class sizes, engaged instructors, a wide variety of academic resources, and lifetime career assistance.
Baker College holds more than 20 specialty accreditations, so you can be sure you’ll get a top-quality education. We’ve also been recognized by the Online Learning Consortium and the United States Distance Learning Association for meeting the highest standards in online learning.
The first reason I chose Baker College is because they are known for helping their students find a career after they graduate. The second reason was that they offer total online classes and I prefer to do that rather than in-seat. A lot of the other schools make you do in-seat and online.
