Frequently Asked Questions
  • Do distance courses earn regular university credit?

    Yes. Credit is earned through Suffolk University, a full-accredited university located in Boston, Massachusetts - one of the "big 25" schools in Boston.

    Distance Computer Science courses are just regular sections of Computer Science, but taught in the "distance medium".

  • Are the classes graded?

    Students earn a letter grade (A,B,C,D,F with +/-) based upon their academic performance in the courses.

    Distance Computer Science courses may not be taken on "pass/fail".

  • Is credit earned in these distance courses transferrable?

    Each educational institution makes up their own requirements for accepting transfer credit.

    In the past 8 years of offering Distance Calculus and Distance Computer Science, not a single student has informed us of any tranferability problems to their main academic institution.

    In very few cases, we have been requested to write letters of clarification for Registrar's at other institutions who have asked for details course descriptions, syllabi, etc., to aid in the transfer request of the student. In these few cases, such letters from Suffolk University have satisfied these Registrars and no further transferability problems have arisen.

  • When does the course begin?

    Distance Computer Science courses begin immediately after registration. You can begin a course whenever you wish.

    [Note: Regular Suffolk University students must follow the academic calendar established by their major/college, and must start a Distance Computer Science course on the semester begin dates as established by the University. This requirement does not apply to CAPS students.]

  • When will the course end?

    A Distance Computer Science course ends when you have finished all of the work for the course, and the instructor is satisfied with your work, and you have successfully completed the final examination. This time of completion is really up to you, and does not have to follow the regular academic calendar.

  • What do I need?

    You need a computer and an Internet connection. The computer should be "newish", and be one of the following:
    • Windows XP or 2000, or Macintosh OSX or OS9, or Linux
    • 500 Mhz or faster
    • 256MB RAM or higher
    • 20GB Harddrive or larger
    • Reliable phone or broadband internet connection

  • How do I register?

    Fill out the PDF version of the Distance Calculus/Computer Science Registration Form and mail/FAX it to the address at the bottom of the page (not to Suffolk University Registrar's Office directly - registration forms for Distance Calculus/Computer Science are handled special by our office first, and then transmitted directly to Suffolk University for processing.).

    Make sure to include your payment and/or payment information so that there are no delays in registration!

  • Is There Financial Aid Available?

    Distance Calculus/Computer Science offers the regular Suffolk University computer science and graduate-level courses via the internet. As such, these courses are offered from a fully-accredited university, and as such, are eligiable for various kinds of financial aid, both governmental and private.

    Distance Computer Science does not offer any scholarships or financial aid packages directly.

    If you are interested in investigating your eligiability for financial aid through Suffolk University, contact the Suffolk University Office of Financial Aid . They are very nice and they will be able to help you determine your eligiability and which grants and scholarships you might wish to apply for.
