“I enjoy taking online classes because it allows me the flexibility to stay home and cuddle with my roommate’s dog.”
– Danielle and Wally
Finding an online class:
There are multiple ways to find online classes at ISU; here are two:

  • A list of LAS Online classes can be found on the course listing page at LAS Online.
  • Online classes offered by all colleges, can be found in the Schedule of Classes by doing an Advanced Search and selecting “Distance Education” as the Course Type.

Students should read the descriptions carefully and look for classes with an “X” in the section indicate they don’t have to come to campus.

Registering for an online class:
Registering for online classes at ISU is the same process as registering for on-campus classes in AccessPlus. You can begin registering at your designated registration date and time (which you can find in AccessPlus)- you will also need your registration access number (RAN).

As you meet with your advisor you should discuss your online options and how online courses can fit into your schedule and degree plan.  If you are headed home, on co-op/internship, or study abroad for the summer, you may find online courses are a great way to continue working on your program while away.
