Distance learning in many cases provides students greater flexibility. This flexibility includes freeing students from the constraints of travel or relocation, affording them opportunities to take courses otherwise non-accessible due to scheduling or physical constraints. As a result, students have more control over their own learning; successful completion will depend on the individual student's self-discipline and commitment to the course or program. In general, a successful distance learner is someone who:

  • wants or needs a flexible school schedule.
  • knows how to study independently.
  • is goal oriented & self directed.
  • has college level reading & writing skills.
  • establishes a regular viewing/log on schedule.
  • sets aside a specific time on a routine basis for studying.
  • contacts the professor promptly with questions about any aspect of the course.
