Online College Courses For High School Students

Ramona Said:

College courses (online, maybe) for HS students that are 'independent' from high schools?

We Answered:

I cannot help you with anything in the States, but in my country we have the Open University, where you can study for a degree at home, assigned your personal tutor and attending summer schools. The rest is done at home though.

The film "Educating Rita" got it completely wrong. You don't have such a close relationship with your tutor as these two did. These days, I imagine tutorials would mostly be done by e-mail.

At the time the film came out, I was married to an OU student (who got a First and went on to become a Head Teacher and is now a County Education Advisor). She made a baby with someone she met at an OU summer school and divorced me.

You have to be incredibly self-disciplined to study for the OU, since nobody will push you except you. Also they have funny terms, and you find yourself spending all the summer studying.

Ask them if they would consider a foreign student.

Sheila Said:

online college-high school students?

We Answered:

Nursing requires labs which cannot be fulfilled online. You can probably get started on your general education courses (english, history, math, etc.) that don't require you to be on campus online. Look up some local community colleges around you and see if they offer these courses online. However, most community colleges require a high school diploma. The only other choice would be non-credit courses which do not count towards a degree.

Good luck!

High School Student Wanting to Take Online College Courses...?

We Answered:

1) yes, it's possible. You may want to take the placement test at college as soon as possible. Learn about the summer progrom for high school students. That's the best suggestion I could give.

2. Normally, when you enrolled in college, you will have student's ID. You can enroll your classes online through your college website with that ID#. Go to the admissions office for answers if you have more concern. Therefore, it's not necessary to call someone to arrange these courses.

3. When you enrolled in that class, there will be a mandatory orientation that the professor set. I think you can find out about the mandatory date and time in the college course catalog. At the orientation, you will know all the information needed to study and to succeed in that class. Your professor will provide you really good advices and stuff. So don't worry much. Professor will give you a syllabus. In that syllabus, you will know how many assignments you will have during the semester, and then you will also know the due date of each assignment, too. So all you have to do is that you need to study on your own and finish all the assignments on time. (You will figure it out).

4. Taking 1 online class is not a burden at all. But you have to be self-disclined and it does require a lot of motivation, too, because you are on your own for most of the time. No peer interaction. And the most rewarding aspect of taking online class is that you can take quiz or exam (before due date and due time) whenever you feel like you wanna do it. In most cases, assignments, quiz, and exams due at 12 o'clock at night and at weekend.

I am happy to clear them up for you if you have any more concerns. I completed five online courses at college already: English, American History, two art history classes, and Psychology.

Which classes are you going to take?
