How Online Learning Works

Turn any computer into a vibrant, interactive classroom—day or night. Consider the benefits. With online learning, you spend your time actually learning, rather than dealing with the hassles that sometimes accompany traditional education.

Our highly interactive online courses are identical to the courses we offer at our Florida campus—but with the added benefit of convenience. Log in at anytime—from anywhere—to engage in discussions and complete your assignments.

Six simple steps to get started and get going toward your online degree:

1. 'Starting Point'

Starting Point is a series of online self-paced tutorials which will guide you through everything you need to know to participate in an online classroom. You will have the opportunity to become acquainted with University resources such as the online library, how to receive textbooks, the online environment and so much more!

2. Find courses that fit

Know the road before you begin. Each course syllabus spells out assignments, learning goals, and grading criteria. You choose what fits.

3. Use state-of-the-art materials

Learning comes packaged in video, audio, CD-ROM, and textbook formats, all made to work with your life and learning style. Purchase textbooks online or from any bookseller you choose.

4. Complete work 100% online

Grading is clear from the start—never a mystery. Your grade is based on assignments evaluated by your professor. Assignments take the form of papers, case studies, business plans, and online quizzes and examinations.

5. Interact with peers and professors

Our online classrooms simulate a traditional campus environment with lively message board discussions. Reply to a thread at any time to join the conversation.

6. Stay informed

Connect through Saint Leo's online portals. WebAdvisor leads you to the administrative database. eLion offers real-time information about class schedules, grades, financial aid, policies and documents, and tuition and payment.
