Incoming Students—Orientation to Online Learning Course

Before you begin your first academic course, we strongly recommend that you register for and complete the short Orientation to Online Learning course— especially if you do not have recent experience taking classes online. This free non-credit, non-graded course provides students with an introduction to online learning at UNC and provides important skills, knowledge, and resources to help students succeed. The course is available each term, is self-paced and the registration process is the same as for credit courses.
