If you’re considering online college courses, Globe University would be happy to speak with you about how it works and whether it’s the right decision for your higher education.
Our online college admissions staff provides an informal, online-learning style evaluation at no cost, in person or over the phone or Internet.
We’ll go over your goals and strengths, and discuss the benefits and challenges of online college courses. During the meeting, you will have an opportunity to ask any questions and explore some of the related tools. To schedule a meeting, contact admissions and ask for an online representative.
In the meantime, here are some other items to consider as you weigh your options for getting a degree online at Globe University.
Are You Committed to Finishing What You Start?
One feature shared by successful distance learners is a high level of commitment to earning their college degrees.
Taking classes online means you have more autonomy, so you’ll need to be a self-starter. But also remember that you can count on our staff and faculty to support you in every way possible.
Are You a Good Time Manager?
Time management is as important in college as it is in the workplace. An online college program may require even more time than a traditional one. You will need to be self-motivated, schedule regular times to work on your classes and avoid procrastination.
One of the greatest benefits will be efficiency—you can take extra time for challenging material, or get through easier lessons quickly.
Comfort with Technology
If you are enrolling in online courses, you should be comfortable with using email and learning new technology.
You will have seven-day-a-week access to live tech support. You will need reliable Internet service and a computer (or regular access to one).
Your Learning Style
If you like to learn and communicate by reading and writing, online learning should work well for you.
If you need to hear an instructor explain material before you understand or retain it, you may do better in a traditional course.
Still, the online college environment offers great opportunities for interaction with your classmates and instructors. In fact, many friendships and professional connections start in the virtual classroom.
If, however, it is important to you to spend face-to-face time with classmates and instructors, you may enjoy the traditional classroom more.
