Online Courses Available to Traditional Day Students

In the Fall 2017 semester, five full-term 16-week, entirely online courses are available to our traditional day students. The online courses are:

  • English-110-OL01: Introduction to Poetry (Prof. Stephen Myers)
  • History-303-OL01: Renaissance Europe (Dr. Brennan Pursell)
  • History-303-OL02: Renaissance Europe (Dr. Brennan Pursell)
  • Math-110-OL01: Finite Math (Father Extejt)
  • Marketing-201-OL01:  Principles of Marketing (Dr. McGorry)

During their undergraduate experience at DeSales, traditional undergraduate students may take up to two online courses in the day program as part of their fall and spring schedules. These courses have been designed specifically for traditional day students by our faculty.

Registration for these online courses will take place as part of the normal fall semester registration process. Costs for these courses are part of the regular full-time day semester tuition plan. There is no extra tuition cost for these courses for full-time traditional day students. These courses will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. ACCESS-by-Day students are not eligible to take these courses.

Students cannot take an online class solely on a tablet, iPad, or smartphone. Students must have a modern PC or Mac computer, with speakers/headphones, a microphone, and a webcam. Video recording may be used to proctor online exams. More information regarding technology needs can be found at: http://www.desales.edu/techrequirements

Registration for Fall Classes

In order to register for fall courses, students must consult with their academic advisors to obtain clearance to register between Monday, April 3 and Friday, April 7.

As preparation for this meeting, you should review your progress toward meeting course requirements and create a list of possible courses for the upcoming fall semester. To do this, use the Academic Evaluation feature in WebAdvisor (Academic Planning > Academic Evaluation) and/or the graduation requirement form for your major (available at www.desales.edu/gradforms). The fall schedule will be posted on March 27 at MyDSU (Departments & Offices > Registrar’s Office).

You should also check your WebAdvisor account to learn when you may begin registering for your courses. After logging in, click on “Registration Status and Time.” For most students, this screen will indicate that they may register between April 10 and April 13. However, please note that some students may see a “hold,” which restricts them from registering. If you are one of these students, you must clear up the related matter before you may register.
