You do not. Classes are asynchronous. You can log on anytime 24/7 to complete your coursework.
To enhance your experience and learning, many of our instructors offer online office hours held at a predetermined date and time.
(There are a few exceptions to the asynchronous components, please view program FAQs for more information)
What is asynchronous online learning? Fully asynchronous courses allow you flexibility in your schedule. Once enrolled in a program, you may view instructional materials when it works best for you as long as you meet course deadlines. There is no live video lecture component for this type of learning. For more information on asynchronous learning visit our blog post: Synchronous and Asynchronous Learning
Once enrolled, you’ll use tools like Canvas and meet with your Student Success Coordinator on a regular basis to ensure you’re on track to graduate. Learn more about the UC Online experience in the video below.
Our faculty members are very responsive to our students. They provide office hours and oftentimes their personal phone numbers, so students may easily schedule a time to discuss questions or issues.
