UOFA Admissions

The programs at the University of Atlanta are delivered on campus* via the hybrid learning model or by completely online instruction. Students order books, review course syllabi and access assignment specifications and schedules online. Throughout the process, work is closely monitored by the course instructor -- who grades and returns written papers, who responds to content-related inquiries, and who provides guidance, supplementary materials, as suitable, and resource acquisition information. It is the instructor, too, who engages the student in active learning (via classroom instructions, email exchanges, peer chats, message boards, co-participatory projects), and tracks student progress through the course. This process is underpinned and supported by the Division of Student Services, where administrative staff maintains contact with students and track rates of progress, thus fortifying the efforts of the instructional corps. All students have access to the E-Global library and to a wide spectrum of online source materials to sustain the learning experience and to allow for in-depth pursuit of focused investigation and analysis. The asynchronous model provides the opportunity to self-pace and affords each the option to adopt a study paradigm consonant with his or her individual style of learning.

Communications in the Virtual Campus are largely asynchronous rather than real-time, based on an explicit model designed for a talented but diverse student population. While this naturally imposes what some deem limitations, in point of fact, it largely expands learning possibilities. Asynchronous communications result in increased access for students (functionally: 24/7, worldwide, whatever the time zone) who are empowered to control the time and place of their participation and their rate of progress. Asynchronous communications further enable students to synthesize material at their own rate of assimilation and to provide well-thought out responses. Paradoxically but understandably, the asynchronous model maximizes such options and is, at the same time, structured to accommodate a broader diversity of student needs and individualized sets of life-circumstances, without compromising the quality of the educational experience.

All programs offered by U of A blend academic rigor with ample flexibility, independent learning with plentiful student support, cutting-edge learning strategies with comprehensive curricula, high standards with ultimate recognition of professional attainments. The design in place is one that fosters both scholastic and professional success alike. Excellence is surely the proud and unwavering hallmark of the University of Atlanta.

Message from the Administrative Board

To all current and prospective students:


As part of our efforts to combat fraudulent activities perpetrated against the University of Atlanta and its student body, please be advised of the following:

1. The UofA only uses official channels in all communications with students. As such, we will never phone you except in an emergency situation and even then, by prior arrangement. The UofA does not utilize social media of any description to contact its students. Specifically, we do not use media such as Whatsapp, IMO or any other SMS platform to contact students.

2. The Uofa will never resort to calling you to demand payment for your program of study nor would we harass you in any way for any reason

3. The UofA encourages all students to be ware of fraudulent activities perpetrated by certain individuals who are in no way connected with us but who engage in criminal activities in attempts to defraud our students.

4. For your sake, please, do not send money through any means, to anyone that claims to be from the UofA. You should only send money following an official notification and as agreed between you and the UofA for your program.

5. UofA is currently working hard to be fully accredited once again with the relevant authorities. Any calls or communications from any one claiming or soliciting your transfer to a different university for the purposes of accreditation or any other purpose is fraudulent and should not be entertained. If you receive such calls, please, hang up or ask the caller to send an official email. If you do stay with the caller, do so long enough to obtain basic information from them, then, hang up and dial our fraud hotline to report it and verify the authenticity of the call

6. Should you find yourself at the receiving end of any suspicious activity, please, do not become a victim. Instead, hang up and dial the Chamblee Police station or report the matter to a special Crime Hotline at the UofA. The number is 630 800 2139.

Remember, we all have a duty to protect ourselves. Do not become a victim. Do not allow criminal activities to flourish at your expense. The UofA takes all such activities serious and will take steps to prosecute the perpetrators to the fullest extent of the law.

Stay informed. Stay alert. Stay safe.
