How to Succeed as an Online Learner

As an online student at Adelphi, you’ll have access to a wide range of helpful resources. From tech support to career services, you’ll always have somewhere to go for help.

Learning online doesn’t mean you aren’t part of a community. Our class sizes are small, and there are plenty of opportunities for you to get to know your classmates. Whether you want to form study groups or check in with questions, other students can be a valuable resource.

Like learning on campus, learning online takes hard work and effort. Remembering to stay motivated is key to success. You’ll get out of our programs what you put in, and keeping yourself accountable will help you on your educational journey.

Time management is vital to gaining knowledge. Knowing how to dedicate the proper amount of time to the coursework for your individual classes while maintaining a healthy work/life balance will make studying more comfortable and productive.

It’s important to make sure you’ve taken all the steps to prepare for your classes. Having the necessary books and materials will ensure you can start your coursework on time when classes start.

If possible, designating a specific space for classes and study can be very helpful when learning from home. It can be easy to get overwhelmed when you live where you study, so making sure there’s a spot you can come back to and step away from will help you stay focused.
