Student Using a Mobile Device on Campus

The exploration, learning, and scholarship that you will engage in online is not defined by the pages of a book or even the syllabus of the course. With our experienced and knowledgeable faculty to guide you, the power to determine how much you will learn ultimately resides in you. For those of you who are a bit anxious about being enrolled in an online program, don't be. For some, 21st century online learning may be easy. For others, there may be a bit of a transition. Everyone may take a few missteps in the beginning, but with patience and hard work, everyone will get up to speed fairly quickly.


If you are unsure that you have the skills needed to be successful learning in the digital environment, take some time to read our FAQs, and review our online student readiness information.


Being a successful online learner or teacher requires having access to the computer equipment and software needed to participate in course activities. To check to see if you have the technology tools needed, review our technical specifications for online students.
