Important: Not accepting applications

Due to recent administrative changes, starting Fall 2021, we are not accepting new students into the GPIDEA Distance program. We are exploring options and hope to provide online graduate programs again in near future. Meanwhile, we encourage those interested in a distance certificate or master’s program to contact the GPIDEA program coordinator at alliance@ksu.edu. If you are interested in the Resident MS or Certificate programs, please contact Starla Ivey at iveysl@missouri.edu.

Courses

This program is 100 percent online: no campus visits are required.

Successful completion of the program requires 18 credit hours.

Courses are offered by multiple public universities in the Great Plains Interactive Distance Education Alliance, and some may have varying start and finish dates. Once you’re a Mizzou student in the program, you will register each semester through Mizzou regardless of the institution offering the course.
