How the Alliance Works

Great Plains IDEA students apply and are admitted to one university, which becomes your home university.  You enroll and pay tuition at your home university; however, courses are taught fully online by faculty from each of the partner universities.  Each degree or certificate includes courses taught by multiple universities who partner together to offer degrees they could not offer alone.  Each university using their own learning management system to deliver online course content, and students use the LMS to complete coursework.  When you complete your coursework, the degree or certificate is awarded by your home university.
