Online
Classes REALITY CHECK!

Taking classes online can be challenging, enriching and convenient, but they are not for everyone. They should not be seen as an easy way to earn credits. In fact, the online environment require as much or more time and energy than traditional classroom learning.

It is the student’s responsibility to access classes and syllabus. Attendance in an online class is measured in terms of student participation in online discussions or contact with the instructor. If you are not actively engaged in the class, the instructor can and withdraw/drop you from the class with no refund.

Contact the instructor or the admission's office if you have any questions or find yourself struggling with learning online.
