Consider Your Readiness
You will also want to seriously consider your ability and commitment to complete an online program or course before you enroll. Online courses are not easy. The reading, assignments, and tests are just as difficult as those in campus-based courses. In addition, being successful in online courses requires you to be self-disciplined enough to log in regularly, focus on your assignments, and complete your work by scheduled deadlines.
Because technology plays a big role in getting your education online, to be successful, you must have easy access to a computer and the Internet. You must also be confident in your proficiency with a variety of basic computing skills.
