Steps to Taking Online Courses
Thank you for considering Wayland; if you’re ready to complete an application or enroll
in courses, please follow the short checklist below. If this is your first visit to
Wayland’s online campus, please take a moment to explore the links and consider if
our unique, personal education is right for you.
- To enroll in an online course you must be a current Wayland student. Only students
that have been accepted and are enrolled in one of Wayland’s campuses are eligible
for our online campus. To apply for college admission, please fill out our Application for Admission form.
Check Your Degree Plan Requirements
- An academic advisor at your nearest campus, or an advisor in our admissions office,
can help you determine which courses are required for your degree plan. If you are
starting a graduate program through the Degree Program Online,
Review Course Instructions
- When considering a class, there should be a link to the course syllabus or outline.
The linked document will contain instructor contact information and instructions regarding
class access. Read this document carefully. Pay specific attention to exam procedures.
If exams require a proctor, you will need to secure a proctor. Students near a Wayland
campus may contact the campus to arrange for proctoring. If you are not near a WBU
campus, you will need to fill out a proctor request form each term. If it will be impossible for you to arrange for a proctor, do not register
for the course.
- Sign up for the course either through your academic advisor or using Student Services.
It is a wise practice to email your instructor by the first day of your class and
inform him or her that you are enrolled in the class. Be sure to indicate the campus
with which you are associated and where you are physically located.
- If you’ve never taken an online class before, learn about accessing the course content
for your class. If you have any questions about accessing course materials, submitting
homework, taking tests, or other issues specific to online courses, start by reading
through the syllabus again, then contact your instructor. If you still cannot find
answers, contact the WBU Online office at 806-291-3740 or via email.
If you need help beyond the checklist provided, don’t hesitate to contact Admissions. We are here to help with any college admissions assistance you might need!
