Online programs at UC emerged in 2005-2006 with the approval of an online master of arts in education and master of arts in teaching. Currently, UC offers more than fifty associate, bachelor's, graduate, and postgraduate degrees in an online format, utilizing both asynchronous and synchronous learning methods. University of the Cumberlands iLearn portal gives students access to everything from online courses and resources, messages from advisors and faculty, and student email. From its founding in 1889, UC maintained a long standing affiliation with the Kentucky Baptist Convention until late 2018. The decision to break this affiliation allows alumni of other religious denominations to serve on the university's governing board, providing a more diverse administration.
