Enroll in University of Minnesota Courses through UNITE
Graduate Students, Undergraduate Students, Guests of the University of Minnesota ... UNITE Distributed Learning "piggybacks" on University of Minnesota courses in the College of Science and Engineering (CSE) on the Twin Cities' East Bank campus.
For each UNITE course offering, there is an on-campus section of that course taught in one of the UNITE-enhanced classrooms. UNITE provides live streaming video from that on-campus class session as well as archived video streams and downloadable video and audio podcasts to students enrolled through UNITE in that course.
Many CSE graduate students in a coursework-only program complete all courses through UNITE. Or combine on-campus courses with courses taken through UNITE toward your degree.
UNITE enrollment is limited to students who are located in the United States during the semester for which they are registering. Short-term travel during the semester will require instructor and UNITE approval.
