How Do StraighterLine Online Courses Work?
We get a lot of questions about our online college courses. Today, we are going to answer some of the most common ones that students ask about how our courses work.
Q: Can you give me an overview of StraighterLine courses?
The courses we offer are all self-paced, meaning you can start the course whenever you would like and complete it within a time frame that fits your schedule. Most courses are designed to fulfill the general course requirements that students need to take before completing a college degree.
Q: How long will it take me to complete a StraighterLine course?
On average it takes a student 40 days to complete an online course. However, the time commitment can depend on the student, his or her college course experience, skills, and the amount of time available to work on the course.
Q: Do I have to complete homework assignments or just take a few exams?
For our online courses we only require that students complete all the graded assignments such as quizzes, exams, labs and essays and receive a grade of 70% or higher in the course in order to pass. There are also ungraded practice assignments that students complete on their own. Those are solely there for a student’s benefit.
