Most traditional 3-credit courses require about 120 hours of your time during a 16-week semester. Don’t assume you can devote less total time just because you are taking a class online. Be careful not to commit yourself to more time than you can comfortably give.
Decide when your mind is most efficient.
Make a study calendar and mark the hours you plan to work on your class. Don’t just "make time" as you go along. Set a pattern for devoting enough time to each class to be successful.
Technology gives cheaters lots of opportunities to be dishonest. On the Web, you can buy term papers, look for old tests and answers, and even find someone to take tests for you. Be careful not to exchange your values for a good grade in an online class. And don't believe the spin that everybody does it. It is always just a few who cheat in online courses. And it shouldn't be you. Cheaters just make it harder for everyone else in the class to succeed honestly. UNH, like all schools and colleges, has a code of ethics that sets penalties for academic dishonesty.
