Is Attending College Online for Me?
An Online College That's Right for Everyone
You may be asking yourself "Will I be successful taking classes online?" At DeVry University, we've built an online learning program designed to work for anyone who will put in the hard work necessary to earn their college degree; here, it isn't about knowing your way around a computer, it's about having the drive to move your life forward. With a faculty and staff focused on providing you with the tools and support to get where you're going — including a dedicated team of Academic Advisors who work with you from enrollment through graduation — our online learning option is for anyone who needs the flexibility of learning anywhere, anytime.
And if you have a DeVry University location nearby, you can take classes in the way that fits your life: online, on campus or through a mix of both. Learn more about how online classes work by experiencing the online college course demo.
Tips for Online Students
By developing a couple of good habits, online students can position themselves to be successful.
- Read everything. Read your course materials, your FAQs, your how-tos and discussions online.
- Manage your time effectively. Even though you won't be expected to sit in a physical classroom, schedule time when you sit and do schoolwork — whether that's interacting with your professor and class online or studying.
- Use the tools provided. We've provided multiple tools to help give you the edge you need to be successful while you pursue your online college degree. Take advantage of those resources — especially the team of dedicated Academic Advisors who are there to work with you.
Through a combination of using these skills and DeVry University's focus on our students, you'll have the tools you need to achieve your educational goals.
