A Path to Excellence

Academic success requires intention and investment. The Department of Online Education & Support is here to intentionally invest alongside you. Here are just a few tips to get you started on this journey toward achievement.

Make Time: Taking an online course requires the same amount of focus and study as taking a course in a classroom. For every hour of class time, plan on spending at least two hours working on your assignments. When you give yourself time to succeed, you will.

Make Space: Remove as many distractions as possible so you can focus. Try to study in a quiet place during a time of day when you won’t be interrupted, and let friends and family know that you won’t be answering their texts. The right space can become the foundation for your future achievement.

Make Plans: As you progress in your classes, set goals to keep yourself progressing forward. Prepare for your next class or look for ways that your current assignment fits into the big picture of your studies — or even how it applies to your current career. By staying on top of your assignments, reflecting on new terms and concepts and constantly pushing yourself to go the extra step, you will stay engaged and energized on your path to excellence. 

Your Questions Matter: The more you participate, the more you get in return. Your peers, your instructors and the DOES team are always ready to support you. Whether you have a question in class or a question about your next step, your questions shape our way forward. So go ahead, ask them all.
