Tips for Online Students
By developing a few good habits, online students can position themselves to be productive during college.
Be prepared. While tablets and smartphones may help you complete some online coursework, they’re not as trustworthy as computers. Make sure you have access to a Windows or Mac-based computer to complete coursework online.
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, make it a priority to schedule time where you sit and do schoolwork — whether that's interacting with your professor and class online or studying independently.
Use the tools provided. We've provided multiple tools to help support you while you pursue your online degree. Take advantage of those resources — especially the team of dedicated Student Support Advisors who are here to work with you.
Take advantage of tutoring when needed. You can schedule one-on-one sessions with our professional tutors online, not to mention submit papers for review through TutorSource. If you’re struggling in a class — or even if you just want some extra help— take advantage of this online resource.
By combining these practices and DeVry University's focus on our students, you'll have access to the tools you need to pursue your educational goals.
MEET YOUR TEAM
At DeVry, when you enroll as an online student, you'll have a team working with you to help you move past whatever obstacles may stand in your way. While you may be taking classes from home, both your professors and academic advisors are committed to your success. As you work toward earning your degree, these individuals are here to provide you with the support you need.
Online students also have a variety of resources available both in person and on the web:
Student Services team members are available to answer your questions about the resources available to you and how to access them.
Student Support Advisors are available via phone and email to help you navigate your academic career. They will work with you to develop a plan of study, and assist you in selecting your online classes, selecting a financing option and developing a financial plan that suits your needs. They can provide assistance in understanding federal and private loans, active military and veterans' benefits, employer tuition reimbursement and grants for qualifying students.
The Student Technical Help Desk has support available to assist you in accessing the online learning system.
