What to Expect from an Online Course

Students who take online courses must be self-disciplined, motivated and have good time management and communication skills. Successful online students log-in frequently to read new announcements and course materials, and interact with classmates and the instructor. Online courses follow the same university calendar as face-to-face courses and are held to the same academic standards.

To learn more about online courses and support services, see the menu to the left. After you have gone through the guide, please let us know what you think about it.

Not Sure if You are in an Online Course?

Check your class schedule to verify your enrollment in an online or hybrid course. You can access your schedule within Pioneer Portal. Once you have pulled up your schedule for the semester, click on the course title for more information. The delivery method (lecture, online, hybrid, etc.) will be listed in the box labeled "Instructional Method."
