    school s operations and making a call to the appropriate state agency provides the student with additional consumer protection Financial Concerns Inquiring about the expense of an online individual course program is another major concern Most online schools can help students acquire financial aid from government sources or scholarships Often payment plans are available and schools should have a policy for refunds Obviously costs included tuition and course materials such as textbooks and software Other expenses might include application and technical fees Checking into the technology requirements for online courses might also necessitate an upgrade to a student s computer Academic Criteria When searching for an online program students need to see if the program is compatible with their educational and career goals After settling on a degree program students need to examine the curriculum closely Is the information presented continually updated and applicable to the specific career field For each class students should receive a course description the learning objectives a list of course materials and how the materials can be obtained The course requirements need to specify what is expected of the student in terms of papers projects and group discussions Instructors should also make it clear to the students how they will be graded and how they can check on their progress Regardless of the online degree selected prospective students should inquire if the degree awarded is the same received by students completing the same program on campus Time Demands Students often choose online educations because their lifestyle includes other activities such as working caring for children or serving in the military Grasping the time commitment necessary for online work before enrollment reduces the potential for undue workload stress Ask how many classes may be taken simultaneously estimate the weekly work load and how long you are allowed to complete the degree While some online schools allow students to begin their program anytime other schools have specific start times during the year Students need to inquire if they can complete assignments at their own pace or if there are deadlines and consequent penalties for late work Find out if students need to be online at certain times Also if the school has a campus facility inquire if online students need to spend any time on campus Qualified Faculty Knowing who is on the other end of the computer teaching an online course is especially critical Potential students should explore the educational qualifications of the instructor looking for advanced degrees or ongoing study in the subject published research awards and practical experience in the field of instruction Students also need to know what type of contact they will have with the instructor Is the course taught in a group setting with other students posting questions or discussion answers or does the instructor work individually with the students Most importantly what protocol do students follow if they have questions Can they contact the instructor by phone email or mail Comprehensive Resources A good online school will have an adequate
