Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between on-campus and online degrees?

On-campus degree programs meet in person on Cornerstone’s campus in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Online degree programs are typically offered in an asynchronous setting (you can complete course work on your schedule throughout the week) and can be completed wherever you have access to the internet!

What if I want to switch from online to on campus?

Once you have registered and started an online course, we suggest finishing the course for that semester. Once the course is complete, you can switch to the on-campus format. Connect with your academic advisor to submit the necessary paperwork and degree plans.

Are all of the on-campus degrees also available online?

No, many of our on-campus programs like nursing, engineering and music are offered exclusively in person. For a complete list of all programs and their available delivery methods, refer to the chart above.
