What students are likely to be successful in this course?

Course is suitable for a wide variety of student ability.

Course is suitable for the “average-good” student who has a reasonable amount of self-discipline and computer savvy.

 

As this course still has a relatively high level of in-person instructor contact, past experience shows that a wide variety of students can be successful in this format including:

  • reasonably prepared incoming freshman,
  • those students juggling full-time employment and other commitments for whom this format is a benefit, and
  • those students who have never taken an alternative delivery format course before but for whom these offering fit well schedule-wise

 In general, this course is NOT well-suited to those students struggling academically.

Course is suitable for the “good” student who has the self-discipline and organizational skills to work independently and a solid amount of computer savvy. 

 

Past experience shows that this group often includes:

  • non-traditional students juggling full-time employment and other commitments,
  • students who regularly successfully complete distance learning course options,
  • students with successful previous college experience, or
  • any student highly motivated to complete the course in an online format.

 In general, this course is NOT well-suited to those students struggling academically, the average incoming freshman who has no previous college experience, and those who require a high level of face-to-face instructor contact to remain on track.
