Distance Education Disclosure
Course Format and Access
ISSA courses and programs are 100% distance education with no residency requirement. Dormitory facilities, housing availability, and institutional assistance with housing is not offered and does not apply. Undergraduate coursework is delivered through our online Learning Management System (LMS), accessible via secured username and password through ISSA’s Member Section at www.issatrainer.com. This course delivery platform is designed with an easy-to-use student interface. The LMS is used by students and faculty members for course syllabus, course work, and grading. Supported by the course instructor and the accompanying textbook, the LMS is the students’ online classroom.
Students may begin classroom orientation shortly after registration. Students are required to complete classroom orientation prior to starting their first undergraduate course. The purpose of classroom orientation is to help the student navigate the LMS, understand the process for successfully completing a course, and utilize all helpful student resources.
