Stephen F. Austin State University has a strong tradition of excellence in higher education. Unfortunately, barriers such as geographic distance, employment schedules, and family obligations sometimes prevent students from coming to campus or attending scheduled classes. With over twenty online degree programs, SFA ONLINE is one way that SFA is working to make higher education more accessible and to help you reach your academic, professional, and personal goals.


​SFA's online programs are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Individual programs are also accredited by national accrediting bodies in their specific fields. SFA ONLINE instructors are trained and certified to teach effectively online and bring years of professional and teaching experience to our courses. ​SFA ONLINE programs are priced the same as campus-based courses with an additional fee of only $25 per credit hour.
