IMPORTANT - First Week of Every Course - Required Activity

The first week of class runs from the Monday the course opens until 11:59 p.m. (Eastern Time) on the first Sunday of that week.

During Week One, you are required to log into all of your courses and submit a minimum 250-word introductory forum post for each course.

Students who do not submit this assignment during the first week of class may be automatically dropped from any courses in which this assignment has not been completed.

  • Informal agreements with an instructor to turn the forum assignment in late will not prevent you from being dropped.
  • For special 2-week courses and comprehensive exams, you are only required to fully attend (log in and out) prior to the one week deadline.
  • You should not rely upon the automated drop if you know you want to drop the course. To ensure your course is dropped and you get a full refund, you must submit the online course drop form before the posted deadline.
