Students in online term-based courses interact with instructors and fellow students asynchronously through weekly assignments, activities, and discussions. Term-based courses follow structured academic calendars and holiday schedules in full-semester, 10-week, and 7-week sessions. Courses may have unique start and end dates, drop deadlines, and refund schedules listed under dates and deadlines.
You should plan to spend the same number of hours actively participating online as you would if you attended a traditional course. For example, if a course is 3 credit hours, you should expect 3 hours of online interaction per week. In addition, plan on 2 hours of course work per semester hour to account for the time it takes to complete reading and writing assignments.
