Yes. Online courses offer more flexibility than traditional courses; however, they still follow a weekly schedule for completing assignments. Set aside time each week to complete coursework. We also recommend that you avoid lengthy trips during the duration of the course, especially if you won’t have internet access while you’re away. A typical undergraduate online course will require approximately nine to 10 hours per week of work, while a graduate course will require approximately 15–20 hours per week. Every student is different, so workload will vary based on prior learning experience.
No. While online courses provide a flexible learning environment, a commitment to completing course work is necessary. Make sure you have time to succeed in your online course.
