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.

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.

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. Most Education Centers offer master's degrees only; some offer an undergraduate degree-completion program in logistics management. Each Education Center's webpage lists the program it offers. Additionally, every academic program page notes the locations at which it is offered.

Applicants to any of the Education Centers, including Florida Tech Virtual must submit a $50 application fee. Tuition & Fees
