ALL STUDENTS (registered and waitlisted) must attend, bring picture ID and class schedule.

It's a good idea to get there early. If you are absent from orientation, YOU WILL BE DROPPED... YOU WILL BE DROPPED... YOU WILL BE DROPPED...YOU WILL BE DROPPED

CHARACTERISTICS OF SUCCESSFUL DISTANCE LEARNERS from The Distance Learner's Guide, Western Cooperative, George P. Connick, ed., Prentice Hall, 1999.

"Those who succeed as distance learners
-- are highly motivated
-- are independent
-- are active learners
-- have good organizational and time management skills
-- have the discipline to study without external reminders
-- can adapt to new learning environments

..."The fact is that you are likely to find that distance learning is more, not less, demanding than learning through traditional means."

ALSO, you need to be adept at reading and following WRITTEN instructions.
