CMU offers degree programs through a distance education model that utilizes both an online and a blended online-hybrid option. Courses are taught using a comprehensive Learning Management System (Moodle) that includes all learning resources and course materials and facilitates meaningful engagement and interactions between the students and their instructors.
The use of this distance learning educational model removes the traditional boundaries of time and location, and allows the University to offer students and faculty the flexibility not often found in other academic environments. Students can choose the most convenient time and place to study and interact with instructors and other students.
*All degree programs are not offered at each site, please contact admissions for more information

Exam Proctoring Policy
To ensure security and integrity the university requires that all students complete the mid-term and final examination for all courses under the supervision of a proctor. The university publishes a schedule of days and times a proctor will be available at our San Diego campus and our Montebello learning site. This schedule is located in your student learning system and published no later than the end of week three of your session.
In the event a student, due to location or special circumstance, is not able to attend a CMU sponsored proctoring session you may complete a Proctor Request Form allowing the student to take their exams off campus under the supervision of a proctor.
