  • I do online college and most of my classes haven't been you attend class every day of the week or there are new assignments due every day. You usually have one or two due dates a week and you do it at your own pace. I am in my last class and I've been doing all my reading on one day and then all my homework assignments in the algebra portal the next day.

  • Every online class I've taken has no set schedule. There are bulletins, readings and assignments posted at a website for the class. You visit the website at your convenience. There are deadlines for assignments, but you can turn them in 5 weeks early, 5 days early or 5 minutes early.

  • To get the info and the assignments there is no schedule so go online as necessary (since basically you teach yourself). To turn in assignments you go on using the deadline given for the assignment. Instructors know you are probably taking it online since time is valuable to to you so they space assignment dates. Just print the syllabus or post deadline dates on your calendar and you should be fine.

  • When I did my Maste's degree online, there was no schedule. We had the syllabus and deadlines and worked from there. Sometimes there would be additional information/assignments, but they'd be posted at least 1 week in advance, and the instructor would email us. If you're worried about missing an email, and you don't have a smart phone, if you have text messaging you canbleave your phone #s email address instead.
    I think the breakdown of the online classes will vary by what type of program, the school you'll be "attending", etc
    Good luck to you in your studies!!

  • It depends on the school. However my experience has been that part time or full time you work at your own pace. You just have set assignments that have to be done before the end of each week. But if you are part time you only take 6 credits and if you are full time you take 12 credits.
