To attend Wayne State University online, you must have access to a computer with an Internet connection throughout the semester. Priority registration for the Fall takes place between March and August of every year. Students register for winter classes between November and January.
Registered students have access to all subject and course details. Students select the subjects and courses in which they are interested and link multiple courses where appropriate. It is a requirement to add lecture and laboratory schedules during the registration process. Students add selected courses to a password-protected “wish list” from which they can view course dates and times. Online registration concludes by assenting to a financial responsibility agreement, although course changes can be made if necessary.
To take online classes at Wayne State University, you should be familiar with the Internet and basic word processors. Students without a personal computer can access computer services from the institution’s five campus libraries, computer labs and extension centers. Instructors advise on any course-specific computer hardware or software that may be required. Throughout the session, students use emails, instructors’ websites and “blackboards” to submit assignments and take exams. Instructors may require students to participate in online class discussions and meetings at designated times.
