The Towson Learning Network (TLN) is a part of Towson University’s Division of Academic Affairs. It is responsible for management and support of undergraduate and graduate programs offered at off-campus locations. TLN is strategically and specifically designed as a means of outreach to the metropolitan region and has a rich history of collaboration with Maryland’s public school systems, community colleges, government agencies and businesses.
The TLN mission is to identify and support opportunities for off-campus courses and programs through collaboration with internal and external partners in order to meet the educational demands of the marketplace, deliver quality customer service, enhance the well-being of the Baltimore Metropolitan region, and promote Towson University’s position as a leader in workforce development in Maryland.
TLN promotes and maintains extensive involvement in continuing education and professional development in the metropolitan region by offering courses and programs at Regional Higher Education Centers, in local school systems, and for government agencies. Additionally, partnerships with community colleges across the state are designed to increase access to four-year programs. Towson University has established partnerships with 14 Maryland community colleges to create seamless transfer opportunities between associate degree programs and Towson University baccalaureate and graduate degree programs. These partnerships assure maximum transfer credit between degree programs and confirm the acceptance of transfer credits from community colleges to specific Towson University programs.
All of the programs supported through TLN provide the same academic rigor as found in on-campus programs.
The Towson Learning Network staff is committed to providing and facilitating access to all Towson University resources to students enrolled in off-campus programs.
