The amount of classes that you take each semester is your choice.

To be a full-time student, you need to be enrolled in at least 12 credit hours (approximately four classes) each semester, but we suggest you take 15 to 17 credits each semester if you wish to graduate in two years, or four semesters.

Many online students have careers, families, and lives elsewhere. Some students may only take two or three classes each semester, while others may take four or five. If this is the case for you, we work to understand your needs and your time, and develop a custom degree path that is right for you.

Do I need books?

That depends on the class; some will require a book, but some will not.

What do I need in terms of computers, software, etc.?

You will need access to a computer and a good Internet connection.
