Relates to: General Distance Learning

Distance learning courses require a high degree of commitment on the part of the learner. Because there are no structured meeting times, and no regular instructor contact, distance learning means the student must be independent and self-motivated.

Many courses have established a calendar of deadlines and due dates. If you follow these dates closely, complete assignments and required readings, your level of success in a distance course will increase. If you tend to wait until the last minute to complete projects or prefer learning where there are more opportunities for personal interaction, this may not be the best approach to completing college-level coursework.

We want you to be successful. If distance learning is right for your learning style, it is a convenient and exciting way to learn.
