Metropolitan State University is committed to your success. To help you decide whether online courses fit your learning style, ask yourself: 

  • Am I an independent learner who does not need the classroom structure to succeed? 
  • Am I able to complete homework and other assignments on time, without reminders? 
  • Do I have good reading, writing, and typing skills? 
  • Do I have intermediate computer and Internet skills? 
  • Do I have a history of successfully completing my courses?

If you decide to take an online course, use these tips to help you succeed:

  • Establish high goals. 
  • Balance school with work, family, and fun. 
  • Participate in online classes regularly. 
  • Complete assignments in a timely manner. 
  • Seek support services when needed. 
  • Understand college policies that affect you. 
  • Communicate respectfully with others.
