How Online Learning Works Webinar

October 24, 2019 / 8:00 pm (EDT) 9:00 pm (EDT)

The prospect of continuing your education through Penn State World Campus can be exciting, but for students who have never taken an online course, there also may be specific concerns or questions about distance learning. We have created this webinar to help you decide whether Penn State World Campus is a good fit for you, and to help you assess your readiness for an online program.

This session will help you understand what you can expect from a distance learning program and provide strategies to help you prepare for the specific challenges of online courses. Admissions team members will also be available to discuss the application process, admission requirements, transfer credits and important deadlines you need to know.
