This study used inferential statistics to investigate the differences between the mean GPA for a traditional education program in Information Technology and a fully online program of the same courses at a public four year college in the Southeastern United States. Great efforts were taken to ensure that the online program is as similar as possible to the face-to-face Bachelor of Science in Information Technology program. The sample included 308 traditional students and 71 fully online students. The results of study found no significant difference in student success measured by GPA in the fully online program and the traditional program.
