Online Learning Expectations

  • Students must login within the first 48 hours of a course start and at least once every 72 hours after that to maintain "active" status. Furthermore, students must log in on at least 4 of the 7 days per week.
  • Time commitment varies by program. Expect to spend at least 20 hours per week in our graduate level courses. If you're like many students, you might find it hard to get started when there are no hard deadlines. So, doing well in an online course isn't just about intelligence, but also about being organized and self-motivated. Learning to control time instead of letting time control you is key! You might also find it a little strange communicating with faculty that you have never met in person. This type of work requires a whole different set of skills than learning in a traditional classroom.
  • Communication and conduct in your online course will be held to the same standards and be governed by the same policies as any on-campus course. Student should know how to: contribute to the course in a meaningful way; to compose course assignments, email messages and discussion board postings using appropriate tone, language, grammar and spelling; to avoid cheating, plagiarism, giving or receiving unauthorized assistance on tests or assignments; to know your student rights and responsibilities.
