  Quality Enhancement Program at Amridge University  
  Amridge University is committed to providing students with online access to over 30 academic programs of study coupled with an array of student support services to help students succeed in their respective program of study.  These programs and services have been initiated under the University’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP).  This page provides students with a summary description of programs and services under the student-oriented sections of the QEP.   Because some of the programs and services are proprietary and/or copyrighted by selected providers, some of the pages require a student login username and password.  For purposes of this page, the student username and password are the same as for the Blackboard system.  Each program or service is bulleted on the list below.  A short summary and an Internet link to the respective program or service follow each item.  Please feel free to contact our technical support for help.  Click on the link below for your technical support contact options.   
  We hope that these programs and services will be helpful to our students as well as provide potential students with an overview of what is available to Amridge University students.
