A low-residency program (or limited residency program) is a form of education, normally at the university level, which involves some amount of distance education and brief on-campus residencies—residencies may be one weekend or up to two weeks. These programs are most frequently offered by colleges and universities that also teach standard full-time courses on campus. There are numerous Master's degree programs in a wide range of content areas; one of the most popular limited residency degree programs is the Master of Fine Arts in creative writing. The first such program was developed by Evalyn Bates and launched in 1963 at Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont.[1]

There are many low-residency MFA programs in creative writing and master of arts programs in a wide range of content areas, and a few schools that offer limited residency undergraduate options (Goddard College, Prescott College, Lesley University, New Hampshire Institute of Art, and Union Institute.)
