Are you ready? Online class requirements checklist:

  • Are you accepted to Cedarville University?

  • Do you have high-speed internet access?

    • Yes: A high speed internet connection is necessary for accessing much of the online course content.
    • No: Access to high speed internet is essential to succeeding in an online course. Course materials such as audio and video content require a fast and consistent internet connection so make sure you obtain such access before enrolling in an online course.
  • Time Designated for the Class

    • Yes: While online courses offer more flexibility than traditional courses, they still follow a weekly schedule for completing activities. Set aside an ample amount of time to complete activities each week, and avoid lengthy trips while you’re in the course, especially if you won’t have internet access while you’re away.
    • No: A typical class will require about 3 hours of work per credit hour per week (i.e. 9 hours of work per week for a 3-credit course). Make sure you have time to succeed in your online course.
