Online courses are offered in subjects from astrology to economics to geography. There are no current full-time online degree programs. Online classes are a nice way to fit in a few extra credits in your schedule without having to make it to a weekly class. However, online classes do require a few hours of work every week and are not for everyone. Because there is no face time with a professor, sometimes managing to learn from text on a computer can be challenging. Professors are available through e-mail, though some are better than others about getting back to students.

Tips to Succeed
- Balance your time between relaxation, fun, and work.
- Don't be afraid to go to an academic adviser. They are very helpful if you want to bounce around ideas about your major or just talk about what classes you should be taking.
- Go to class. With some of the bigger lecture classes, it may seem easy to skip out of class once in a while, but you will get behind and regret it.
- Meet with your professors outside of class. If you get to know them, your grades will reflect that. They are more than willing to help with essays or questions you may have.
- Take advantage of the resources at UO. There are free tutors in almost every subject available.
- Take more than the minimum amount of credits. It is not too overwhelming, and you will be more on track for a four-year graduation.
