Is Florida Tech accredited?
What's the difference between a degree earned on campus and a degree earned at an Education Center or online?

There is no difference. All degrees are designed and taught by Florida Tech faculty. A degree earned at any one of our Education Centers is of the same rigor, prestige and quality as a degree earned on campus. All degrees are conferred by Florida Institute of Technology, and are backed by the same high standards and accreditations.

What's the difference between Florida Tech Virtual and Florida Tech Online?

Florida Tech Virtual offers specialized master's degree programs designed for working professionals. It has two 16-week terms (Fall and Spring) and one 11-week term (Summer). Florida Tech Online offers associate's, bachelor's and master's degree programs. It conducts classes in 8-week terms throughout the year. The degree programs offered through each option are designed and taught by Florida Tech faculty. The differences are programs offered, semester length and tuition.

Do all of Florida Tech's education centers offer the same programs?

No. Florida Tech Education Centers offer different programs depending on their size and local demand. Nearly all of the programs offered at Education Centers, however, are available online through Florida Tech Virtual.

Additionally, every academic program page notes the locations at which it is offered.
