Already registered for an online course? Most online courses are typically available one week before the actual start date (Preview Week.) This allows you to familiarize yourself with the course framework. Be sure to take a tour of your course early to familiarize yourself and learn to navigate with its various sections.
During the week before an online class begins, registered you can access the class to:
- View the syllabus
- E-mail the instructor with questions
- Review the learning environment
- Verify that the format fits your learning style
- Complete Blackboard Orientation
Preview week gives you the advantage to view your course before the actual start date. If you find that the class does not meet your needs during this period you will have enough time to drop the course without any financial penalty as long as it’s completed before the class officially begins. Please visit Financial Services for important dates on dropping a course and information on our refund policy.
