Courses offered entirely online
A course offered entirely online, also referred to as a “fully online course,” is just what it sounds like: a course that is offered via the Internet, for which you do not attend classes on campus. You can meet with your professor and classmates virtually, exchanging ideas and doing activities together just as you would in a traditional course.
The time commitment required for this course and its content is the same as for a traditional course. You carry out your course work, including online discussions, papers and other activities, from September to December for the Fall term and from January to April for the Winter term. You also follow the same important academic dates and deadlines.
