Criteria for Students Taking Online Course
- Students taking online classes for the first time should have a cumulative average
of at least a 2.5.
- First time distance learning students should also complete online orientation/training:
“How to Succeed in an Online Course” before they begin their courses.
- Students must register for online courses before the start of classes. Should a student
wish to add an online course after the start of classes, he or she must have a signed
distance learning late add form, which requires the signature of the instructor, the
academic dean, and a student success manager. (The form should be available online,
and a student should be able to explain his or her case through the form and/or attain
the required permissions over the phone or through e-mail.)
- Because of the intensive nature of fully online courses, students should acknowledge
that they have access to a computer approximately 10 to 15 hours a week in a 15 week
course, 20 to 30 in a seven week course and 40 to 60 in a Winter*net course.
