A variety of online courses are available for students in need of elective credits or for those not seeking a degree.
Current Students: Before registering for a course, students must consult with their academic advisor to ensure the course qualifies as elective credit for their degree program. Courses may be used as electives as long as they do not duplicate previous course work. Note: Elective courses may not exceed the student’s current grade level (i.e. Bachelor level students must take courses numbered at 400 or below).
Cornerstone University reserves the right to cancel online classes due to insufficient enrollment or other unforeseen circumstances.
