Tips for Success & Resources for Help

 

Information for Students Who Enroll After the Start of the Class

  • It is the responsibility of the student to make up for any work missed.
  • The student will have 1 week from the date they enroll in the course to submit all missed work. This will likely include discussion leadership sign up, any missed quizzes, and any essays necessary to make up for missed class sessions. If missed assignments are submitted within 1 week of enrolling, the student may earn full points. If missed assignments are not submitted within 1 week of enrolling, all missed assignments will receive 0 points.
  • Extra Credit Opportunity #1 may not be submitted late, regardless of enrollment date.

 

Tips for Students Who Work Full-Time

  • It is the responsibility of the student to plan time wisely. During a normal 16 week semester, a 3-unit course should require 3 hours of in-class time plus 9 hours of homework time per week. Remember that 3-week terms require the same amount of work within a much shorter time frame.
  • Students who find their time limited during the week will need to plan ahead, perhaps completing readings and quizzes on the weekend before they are due.
  • Online students may record some of their videos ahead of time. This applies to discussion leadership posts and “Contributing to Classmates” discussion posts.

 

Information for Students facing personal difficulties

  • Any student who is facing challenges securing food or housing is urged to contact the CARE team in the Dean of Students Office for support. Resources are available to provide UWW students with free on-campus meals and other types of assistance. If you are comfortable in doing so, please also know that the professor is open to talking about these issues and will be happy to supply additional resources that she may be able to access.
  • Any student who is facing health challenges (mental or physical) is urged to contact University Health and Counseling Services for support. If you are comfortable in doing so, please also know that the professor is open to talking about these issues and will be happy to supply additional resources that she may be able to access.
  • Any student who feels that their personal safety (including issues related to harassment or sexual assault) has been compromised is encouraged to report such concerns or incidents. If you are comfortable in doing so, please also know that the professor is open to talking about these issues and will be happy to supply additional resources that she may be able to access.
