Online Learning

As a UW student you have what it takes to be a successful learner. An all-online quarter simply requires you to adapt much of what you already know.

It will take practice and dedication to tailor your study habits to the online learning environment. You will complete all of your coursework online, without ever coming into campus or meeting in person with your classmates or instructors. Rest assured, you will interact with your classmates and instructors, but these interactions will be facilitated through online tools.
