We do not allow anyone who is not enrolled in a course to audit or observe the course. This ensures student security and limits disruptions for the students who have paid for the teachers' time. The Chat description page includes more details about our chat philosophy and software. There's a screen capture of an actual chat orientation session, links to the log of an typical chat session.
Scholars Online is currently engaged in accreditation evaluation by MSA-CESS for the 2017-2018 academic year. Courses taken from Fall 2009 - Spring 2017 were fully accredited by AdvancED and NWAC. For more information on accreditation, see our Scholars Online Accreditation page.
