Is Online Right For You?

Is Online Right For You?

Online classes present different challenges than typical on-campus classes. Consider these questions to determine if online classes are a good fit for you:

  • Are you self-motivated?
  • Are you comfortable having conversations using applications similar to Facebook?
  • Can you stay connected with course materials several times a week?
  • Are you comfortable emailing a faculty member or your peers if you have questions?
  • Do you avoid procrastination?
  • Can you use your free time efficiently to complete course work?
  • Are you comfortable establishing connections with peers through an online interface?
  • Can you study well by yourself?

To best take advantage of the benefits of taking classes online, you should be an independent and self-motivated student. If you answered “yes” to the questions above, online classes are likely to be a good fit for you.

You should also review the technology requirements for participating online courses.
