It is very important that you are familiar with Cancel, Drop, and Withdrawal policies before enrolling in an online course. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions before enrolling. You do not need to be admitted to a degree or certificate program in order to enroll in an online course. Any student with a bachelor's degree can register for an online course as a non-degree student (please note that non-degree students who are taking courses are not in a degree program and successful completion of these courses does not guarantee admissions into the degree program.). Individuals are responsible for determining if they have the required course prerequisites prior to registering. Up to 12 hours of University of Illinois credit, taken prior to being admitted, will transfer into a degree program with departmental approval.
Since you will be conducting your coursework online, including watching lectures and submitting assignments, we recommend that you have a good quality computer and a reliable Internet connection. A fast, reliable Internet connection makes it easier to participate in the class. Taking classes with connections under 128Kbps is possible, but we recommend a broadband connection. It is very important that you visit our Demos page to ensure that you can view the course lectures adequately before registering for courses.
