Ways to Take Online Classes
WesternOnline offers two delivery modes for students to access online education which include Term-Based and Self-Paced courses. Both options require internet access to receive course information using Canvas.
Term-Based online courses follow a quarterly schedule and have weekly interaction among instructors and other students. Much like a traditional face-to-face course, students follow a designated schedule, completing the course during the enrolled quarter.
Self-Paced courses are available on your schedule and start anytime. These courses are designed for completion in 10-12 weeks, with a maximum completion time allowed of 6 months. Students access online courses through Canvas but consistent interaction is not required. Registration for this type of course requires a different process then term-based courses, more information is available on the Registration page. Click here to view a list of self-paced courses.
Courses in the departments of Accounting, Finance and Marketing, Decision Science, Management, Management Information Systems (MIS) and Operations Management are not available to academically dismissed students.
