What are some of the challenges of online classes?

Online courses offer many of the same challenges as face-to-face courses. You have to be prepared to engage with the material, you have to find time to study, and you need the discipline and commitment to do college-level work. Online courses do require you to be a bit more independent, they require you to be […]

What types of help and support will you offer me if I’m having trouble in class?

You will have access to lots of support. For example, you have access to your instructor and your academic success advisor. We also want you to know that we will actively review your course work and activity, and we will try to prompt you when we see you’re having trouble. Our goal is to catch […]

What percent of people drop out of the program or college?

That’s difficult to answer since we have just started this program. Our goal is to prompt students as soon as we see a problem that might keep them from being successful. We offer support and assistance to address problems you may experience, so we anticipate that our retention will be high.

What is the faculty-student ratio?

We were designed with student success in mind, and we take all of the necessary steps to ensure our students have appropriate academic support, regardless of the enrollment.

The modules vary in length, but they typically have learning materials such as lectures and reading materials and also an opportunity to demonstrate what you have learned. The exact organization may vary from course to course, but all courses will be easy to navigate.

Can I take more than one class at a time?

Not at this time. Our courses are brief and intense, and last just six weeks. It’s been our experience that given the intense, focused nature of the class, that students do better taking one class at a time and then moving on to the next course.

How long do classes last? (semester)

Classes are six weeks long. There is a one-week break between classes.

Do I have to log in at specific times?

Every class requires a pre-test that is completed within the first four days of class. We recommend students “attend” class on a regular schedule. If you set aside the time on your calendar and plan for it, it will be easier to stick to it and complete your assignments. The courses are designed to allow […]
