Online College Classes at UAF: What to Expect
Classes at UAF’s online school are much like you would experience in a traditional classroom, but in a more flexible format. You’ll share about yourself, and learn about your peers. Engage in discussion forums, do presentations and take exams. You’ll also interact with your instructors and get to know the people you’re learning from, and working with, on a personal basis.
As an eCampus student at UAF, you’ll benefit from:
- Personal attention and support from your professors
- Working with students from all over the world
- Active learning projects and hands-on work
- Community building with your classmates
Your online learning experience may involve using blogs, social media, video chat and other technology. For many online courses you’ll get to choose your own adventure by personalizing your learning experience. You’ll also have opportunities to work with local community organizations, take part in public service work and engage in other experiential learning opportunities.
While most online classes do not require meeting times, you will have weekly assignments to complete. Some online courses may also require you to take proctored exams, which can be completed at our UAF eCampus Exam Center or with a local proctor if you live outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. You’ll receive progress reports with grade feedback through the mid part of the semester. You can view your midterm grades at UAOnline.
