Undergraduate Catalog 2009-2011
OnlineCCSU is the virtual classroom of Central Connecticut State University.
Responding to the emerging trends of learning-on-demand, CCSU offers courses that traditionally were only available in the classroom.
Online learning, also known as distance education, takes place using computer technology and the internet when the faculty and students are separated by distance, i.e., not in the same room. Within semester limits, OnlineCCSU offers asynchronous learning, which means the instructor and the students need not be in the same room at the same time or on the computer at the same time. This means students may sign on any time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Except where the faculty have set test dates, chat room sessions, etc., students do not need to sign on at the same time as other students or at the same time as the instructor.
OnlineCCSU offers both graduate and undergraduate courses, and new courses are added every semester. CCSU faculty, who design and teach the courses, are at the core of this distinctive learner-centered program. Credits earned online are eligible for credit towards a degree.
Full-time and part-time matriculated students (students who have formally applied and been admitted to CCSU) who already have a faculty advisor should continue to consult with that advisor regarding online courses.
Non-matriculated students do not need a faculty advisor to register for an online course.
