If you are looking to earn your degree with a flexible schedule and the convenience to work around your busy schedule, Harrison College's accredited online degree programs may be the perfect solution for you.
Structure of Online Studies
In truth, Harrison Online Studies are more structured in many ways than you might think, yet allow you some extraordinary freedoms that our online students grow accustomed to very quickly. Yes, you set up and follow your own schedule, but your instructors provide inflexible deadlines for assignments that you must meet. And yes, there is a significant amount of self-discipline and reliance on the honor system involved in Online Studies, but students who desire a quality education take those responsibilities seriously.
Online Studies are not easier than campus-based programs. You will learn just as much and experience the same sense of accomplishment—exactly as if you’d been in a physical classroom. But at the same time, you will have a more flexible schedule, allowing you to schedule study time whenever you want… 3 a.m.? No problem.
Harrison College's Online Studies
- Harrison College uses an online learning management system to allow students to access online classes. As an online student, you’ll be given a username and a password and you’ll receive a class schedule, syllabus, assignments, lecture materials, grading policies, quizzes and tests.
- Each class has its own individual instructor and you’ll be in a virtual classroom with 9-40 other students from around the state, the country and the world!
- You’ll be able to access classes 24-hours a day, seven days a week from wherever you have Internet access. You won’t have assigned times when you must log in to class; however, you will have specific assignments and activities that must be completed each week. You’ll also need to log in throughout the week to pick up announcements from your instructors.
- You’ll spend between 4-15 hours per class, per week. The time you spend on your classes varies depending on the classes you take and the assignments required for that week.
- An individual’s learning curve also comes into play. Something that takes you two hours might take someone else six hours. Students who are most successful at taking classes online are those who plan a weekly schedule allotting time for work, family and a time when they plan to log in and work on their online coursework.
- Although you’ll have 24/7 access to your assignments, instructors enforce strict deadlines. Being able to meet deadlines before and after enrollment is critical to becoming a successful online student.
