I’ve never taken a class online. What is it like?

Courses in the Online Program have the same content as the traditional classroom courses. The only difference is that the course material is delivered within a virtual learning environment called Canvas. All of the information for the course – lectures, assignments, discussions, exams and more - is housed in the online learning system. Once you have enrolled in an online class, you will receive Canvas training and your log-in information.

In online courses, there are no specific times that the student must be online, but normally the professor will have specific “office hours” available for discussion with students.

How long will it take to get my degree with the Online program?

The time it takes to complete your degree depends on several factors. Once you have been accepted to Limestone, your Advisor can help you map out a plan with a timeline to finish your degree.

  2. In addition, students may earn credit by taking nationally developed examinations or by Limestone University developed tests.
