Global Reach

FIU has expanded to become one of the largest universities in the country and one of the largest providers of online learning.

Our Vision

To be at the forefront of online education innovation and recognized as a leading institution that transforms learners into professionals who will make an impact on our world.

Connect FIU students and lifelong learners to the highest quality online educational experience–anytime, anywhere.

Our Mission

FIU students can start online now and transfer to campus later. In the meantime, online students, regardless of location, have access to the same university resources as on-campus students, as well as additional support made available exclusively for remote learners. This is not an online degree—whether you complete your degree fully or partially online, your diploma will be from FIU and does not note whether you completed your program online, on-campus, or a hybrid of both. You may study online, but you are still an FIU student. That means you can study from wherever you are and still walk in graduation here on campus!

Study online, walk on-campus.

With our commitment to providing opportunities to all learners, anytime, anywhere, we recognize some of the unique challenges our students may face. FIU Online developed wrap-around services to ensure your focus remains on achieving your academic and career goals.
