Courses are offered entirely online.

M.S. Management is formatted to meet the needs of working adults. Students will use Greenville's online learning platform to submit assignments, discuss organizational issues, and stay connected with professors and peers.

Online courses at Greenville College are designed with student engagement at the core. Online students are challenged with a variety of learning experiences both independently and cooperatively within the course. The amount of interaction varies by subject, but a well-managed study plan will help the online learner stay focused, on task, and involved.

Online students are expected to have at least an elementary knowledge of their personal computer, its operating system, and basic knowledge of software and tools such as a word processor, e-mail, an Internet browser, and search engines.

Students in online courses are expected to login to their courses at least three times a week. Some courses may require more frequent participation.  Therefore, students must have a personal computer or laptop that can be updated to include all minimum requirements.

Learning Management System

Greenville College uses D2L as a learning management system.  You must first be enrolled in a course and assigned a Greenville College network user name and password to access D2L. 

D2L's direct URL: https://learning.greenville.edu

Tutorials are available 24/7 within D2L's help feature.  Additional training and support is also available by sending an email to onlinehelp@greenville.edu or by calling (618) 664-6839 during regular business hours.

Students will be expected to know the basics of the D2L system before beginning their online courses. Successful completion of a zero (0) credit online orientation course to familiarize students with D2L will be required before students can begin the first course of the program.


Students will be provided a Greenville College email account through Gmail.  All students are responsible for monitoring this email account for important College correspondence.  However, you may choose to forward messages from this account to another personal email account that you use more often.


D2L has a built-in accessibility menu to accommodate many disabilities.  However, students may wish to pursue additional assistance from the College.  To request accommodations or modifications for documented disabilities, students must contact the Coordinator of Disability Services at (618) 664-6618.
