Are you ready to take an online class?
Online classes provide a great deal of flexibility however, they are not for everyone. To succeed, you have to be self-motivated, possess good study skills, and be an independent learner. Online classes are as challenging as on-campus courses. Online classes are not self-paced. Course assignments, quizzes and exams have deadlines. Some courses have an on-campus component.
