thumb, I accept any student who submits this application unless the class is filled. That’s
because I’ve designed the application to help you determine if an online class is right for you.
The personal information you provide will help me get to know you better. So consider the
questions about your background and character strengths I ask about, and use that to help
you consider if you are ready not only for a college level course with college level
responsibility; but also, an online course will all its unique possibilities and limitations.

acceptance. Rather I use this to help me figure out what difficulties a student may be having
and how I should promote engagement and learning from my end.)

Suitability for Online Learning

    High Speed Internet
    I will be able to check e-mail daily and I can receive large PDF files.
     I have initiative and will contact instructor if I have a question or concern.
     I am willing to contribute to the creation of a community of scholars by participating in
the online forums weekly.
     I realize online learning requires a greater degree of discipline and organization than
learning at home; at a co-op, or in a live classroom, and I’m willing to improve in these areas.

Reading List
Please give me a sampling of the most difficult literature you have read for pleasure or class
during high school.

writing. I am only interested in analytical or research writing experience.
