Can I earn a complete degree through eCampus?
Boise State eCampus offers bachelor-level degree completion programs, certificates, master programs, and doctorate degrees — all of which can be completed at a distance. For more information see eCampus Programs
. At this time, full Associates and Bachelor’s degrees are not available through eCampus at Boise State University.
Am I required to take proctored exams?
Some online courses do require proctored exams, but some do not. For those that do not require a proctored exam, you complete the exam online following your instructors instructions.
For those that do require a proctored exam, you will need to locate an approved proctor near you. This could be at a local university testing center or library. Depending on the course, we may also be able to have you use a remote proctor. That is, a proctor that connects to your computer remotely, verifies your identity, and monitors your activity to ensure you aren’t using any restricted materials during the exam.
How long do eCampus classes last?
Most eCampus classes run the full length of the semester which traditionally is 16 weeks in the fall and spring with shorter condensed sessions over the intersession and summer. Dates are listed on myBoiseState
, and the eCampus Course list
page also indicates if courses have condensed meeting dates.
How do I access my online courses?
Online instructors initiate contact with students by sending out a “Welcome” email. This initial email provides important course information including but not limited to:
- Instructor introduction
- Instructions for accessing the online course website
- A copy of the course syllabus
- Important course policies
- Reminders about university dates and deadlines
- Instructor and course expectations
- Technical requirements
- Support information
Look for this “Welcome” email before or on the first day of the semester. Once you receive this email, access your online courses as soon as possible. If you do not receive an email, you should either contact the instructor of the course or the eCampus Center.
