How do I interact with my teachers?

Your teachers will communicate with you every week through phone calls, email, blogs and discussion boards. Students are also encouraged to reach out to teachers during office hours for assistance in courses. Many students report that they communicate more here than they ever did with their teachers in a traditional school.

I don't have a computer or laptop. Will I receive one?

Students who do not have access to a personal laptop or computer may request a loaned Google Chromebook. During the enrollment process, students can inform their enrollment advisor that a laptop is needed, and the enrollment advisor will work with each student to complete the required paperwork. The laptop is for school purposes and must be returned to the school at the time of withdrawal or graduation. Failure to return the laptop will result in a fee up to $250.00

It depends. Please discuss this with your school counselor, who will be able to guide you through the process.
