Online College Courses?

How are online college courses taken? What are they exactly? How do you apply, online? What kind of classes can you take or have to take? ..Credits? ..Tuitions? ..Scholarships? Do you go to class for online courses? Do you do all your work online and submit them through online as well? ~Sorry for the lame questions, I’m just curious.

And for those who has taken online classes, how do you like it? Do you prefer to take online college courses or go to regular college?

Last summer I took 3 courses online at a local community college and mind you this was my first time ever taking courses online. Anyway, since these courses were taken during the summer the pace was accelerated. They lasted 6 weeks. It was a lot of work. You have to stay organized and prioritize. Remember you don’t have to go to class anymore so you may have the urge to slack off. DON’T!!!!!!! You will regret it if you do because you will have a $h!t load of work at the end of the semester. I spent 4 hours a day studying for my classes. On the weekends, I got up early in the morning to start my assignments. I made up a bi-weekly schedule to stay on type of my school work and personal engagements. I work full-time so I had to prioritize. Don’t get me wrong I loooooooooooved online classes. I wish I could take all my classes online. Its convenient I can go to class in my pjs. However, since I’ve transferred to a 4 year university I’ve to take telecourses, which means you have even less contact with your instructor.

First off, online college is a dangerous thing in some instances. Many online colleges’ credits will not transfer. However, you may find that your local community college offers courses online. Even so, you are probably too young at this time. Most early college credit programs require you to be a junior. However, once you are old enough, if you’re not already, it might be a good idea to look into taking night, summer, or maybe online courses through your community college. Make sure your dad isn’t just being a typical proud parent to think that you’re so advanced you need to start college so young. Chances are you can find courses (AP and honors) to take at your high school that will challenge you and even give you college credit (AP).
