Tips for Online Learning Success

  1. Identify a study space that works for you. Some students need a space free of distractions. Many others thrive in shared workspaces like public libraries, coffee shops, and more. You can work wherever suits you best.
  2. Commit to a structured schedule. Having a set time to work can help manage your studies and time. Designate specific time frames (e.g., 3–6 p.m. on Saturdays) for studying and stick to them.
  3. Ensure your support system knows what you need. Whether it’s feedback on a writing assignment or designated times alone to study, let your family and friends know what they can do to support you as you complete your degree.
  4. Connect with professors early. Our professors are here to support you. Reach out to ask any questions about courses and requirements as soon as possible and benefit from their support and mentorship.
