Tips and Tools

Here are a few tips to help you as an online student to earn your degree:

  • If you are not comfortable using computers take a beginners computer course. You can even find free computer courses at your local library or community center.
  • Make sure your equipment meets what is required by your online school.
  • Set a schedule to stay on time with online course work.  The main cause of  non-completion of an online education is procrastination.

  • Use the time you save from commuting to a campus school, studying and staying on schedule with your online courses.
  • Make sure your online university or school is accredited.
