Fitting Online into Your Life

As you begin preparing to take online courses, it may seem overwhelming when you think about how to juggle school on top of your personal and professional responsibilities. Don’t worry! Students enrolled in the UNC System have many resources to help them successfully fit online learning into their lives.

While students often choose online education for its convenience and flexibility, it’s important to be aware that online learning can require just as much, and for some, more time and effort than traditional face-to-face education. Fitting online learning into your already full schedule means carefully considering your time management skills, your study environment, and your ability to balance school with your other responsibilities.
