SNHU emerging as online education leader

President expects to top 35,000 students this year

(Continued)

SNHU is now developing the College for America.

The program is letting employees of companies like ConAgra Foods earn degrees. Instead of traditional credit hours, students must demonstrate they are competent in areas such as communication.

“You have to show mastery,” LeBlanc said.

SNHU also continues to grow its traditional campus for the 18-year-olds graduating high school.

The university has invested $71 million in facilities over 15 years, including a new academic center, dining hall and student center.

LeBlanc sizes up the future for online education at SNHU this way: “Continuing to grow and getting better and better.”
