Online Courses

Summer 2020

Cottey College, a private, liberal arts college for women, offers summer online courses. All five courses are available to students enrolled at Cottey and other colleges or high schools, as well as adult women who are interested in earning credits at an institution committed to providing a foundation for developing women leaders and leadership skills.

How do I do this?

Enrolling in an online course is relatively easy. Just register and pay online with a credit card.

Registration deadline is Friday, May 29.

On the first day of class, use the eLearning information sent to you via email to log on to Cottey’s eLearning website, go to Academics, click on the link to your course, and follow the instructions posted.

Who teaches online?

Our online courses are taught by experienced Cottey faculty. Online faculty have regular contact with students through discussion forums, online faculty offices, email, and telephone conversations.

What about technology?

You must have access to a computer with a stable Internet connection during the summer session. You must have an active email account and at least one of the listed browsers: Microsoft Edge, Safari 6 or above, Mozilla Firefox 25.0 or above, and/or Google Chrome 30.0 or above. You must have word processing software that can generate .doc files. You may have to download a PDF reader and PowerPoint viewer.

Are online classes easier?

No, they are simply different and require more self-motivation and discipline.

What about textbooks?

Textbook information is included with course descriptions. Students are responsible for obtaining their books.

How much will this cost?

Tuition for summer online courses at Cottey College is competitive at $125 per credit hour, plus the cost of textbook(s).

Why Online Education?

Because I’m interested in the topic and want to pick up a class I might not otherwise be able to take.

Because I want a jump-start on starting my college career or completing graduation requirements in a timely manner.

Because I want to experience technology used frequently in today’s business and higher education environments.

Because taking courses over the summer allows me to concentrate on other courses during the fall that lead to my major or require quite a bit of time.

Because I’d rather take a summer course from Cottey than another institution.
