JWU offers a select number of online courses to undergraduate students enrolled at all four campuses. Online courses allow you to interact with faculty, submit assignments and take exams in a way that fits your schedule. And, because you can access course materials 24/7 from any location with Internet access, you decide when and where you want to learn. Before you register for your first course, you’ll want to determine if online learning is right for you. Getting Started To be a successful online student, you need to be a self-motivated, self-disciplined learner who is comfortable using computers and adept at time management. Are You Ready for Online Learning? is an overview of the skills and characteristics you should have to be successful in an online course. Once you’ve reviewed the list, complete the questionnaire: Is Online Learning for Me?
If you still have questions about the process, review commonly-asked questions about online learning. Computer and Browser Requirements You’ll also want to make sure that your computer is compatible with our online learning delivery platform. If it doesn’t meet the requirements, some features may not work correctly for you and you may not be able to fully participate in your course. RegisterRegister for courses through jwuLink (click Registration & Grades tab and then Course Scheduling) at your appropriate registration time. Courses are available on a first-come, first-served basis. You may add by the first Saturday or drop by the second Saturday of the term.
