  • What date do students need to log in by?

    • Mandatory Online Orientation is due the Wednesday after the course starts

  • What happens if I don't do the Online Orientation by the due date?

    • The Online Orientation is somewhat like a check-in or first day of class. If someone does not "show" by doing the online orientation items, I consider the student a "no show" and drop them from the course in order to add students that are waiting to get in.​

  • Are there live (online or in-person) sessions? If so, when?

    • On campus "live" courses days/times are listed when you enroll.

    • There are no mandatory meeting times for my online courses.

    • Assignments are usually due on Sundays, 11:59pm - check individual course schedules to be sure

  • Is there a required textbook?

    • Check individual courses for textbook and software requirements.

  • What materials do students need to have in week one?

    • Access to the Internet​

    • Check individual syllabus information

  • Are summer sessions less work than the semester course?

    • Summer courses are compressed into shorter time frames. The same amount of material and assignments are in a shorter amount of time.​

    • A semester course is 16 weeks in Spring and Fall ~ same course in Summer is 8 weeks. 

    • An 8-week course during Spring and Fall is 4-weeks in Summer.

    • So......you will be doing 2 weeks of assignments in one week during the summer courses.

    • If a fast paced course is not your comfort zone -- take the course during Fall or Spring.

  • Student Question: I have a vacation planned during the course. Will I be able to make special arrangements to get material early or turn in assignments late?

    • No..... enroll for courses that you will be able to take in the dates they are offered.​ No special arrangements will be made. Due dates are the same for all students.
