How do I login to my online classes?
How often will I need to visit the campus?
Depending on the course, you may need to come to campus to buy textbooks and other instructional material, attend a mandatory orientation session, use the library, view videos or take exams. In those cases, you may come to campus any time during the duration of the class. In most cases, all class requirements may be met at a distance.
Is there an instructor?
Your instructor maintains all the on-line course components during the semester. Additionally, your instructor is available by e-mail to answer questions and discuss assignments.
How do I take exams?
In most classes, you will be taking your tests online. Your instructor will make a link available that will lead you to the test. After taking the test, you will also submit the test online.
If you are in a hybrid class (which meets for some portion of the time in a classroom), you may be required to come to campus to take some or all of your exams during your regular class session.
How much time should I expect to spend in an online course?
Expect to spend at least as much time as you would in an on-campus section of the course (about 2.5 hours a week for each credit during a 15-week term for the average student to earn a C. Allow proportionally more time if the term is shorter).
