For those who prefer interaction with other students, the Online Program enables completion of courses in a virtual classroom environment. You can log on to your course at any time. Six eight weeks terms are offered each year. The Online Campus and a demo course can be accessed at www.uiuonline.com.

However, online courses are not for everybody, just as not every student is successful in traditional college classes. Discover what it takes to a successful online learner.
