Plans call for UMassOnline to offer credit and non-credit courses, certificate programs, and degree programs from all five UMass campuses through online and face to face programs throughout China. Forty UMassOnline courses, four certificate programs, and one master’s degree program could be made available in China within a year.

The agreement flows out of the academic and research partnership that was formed in 2006 with the signing of a groundbreaking Memorandum of Understanding between UMass and Tsinghua University. Both CCEA and CerEdu Corporation are affiliated with Tsinghua University, which has a close relationship with the Chinese Ministry of Education.

The Ministry of Education has final approval power over distance learning programs in China and currently does not recognize the college credits or degree credentials earned in China via distance learning offerings from any foreign-based academic institution.
