How do students register for SLN courses?
Just like any other course, students go through the Registrar's Office of the campus offering the course. If it is a SUNY Oswego Course, they must register through the Oswego Registrar's Office, using the same process and calendar as with any course. This pertains to the payment for the course as well.What is the cost of an SLN Course?
The tuition and fees are the same for an Oswego SLN course as they are for any Oswego credit-bearing course. The difference in fees is based on whether it is a graduate or undergraduate course, but this is not an SLN difference.
How do students access the SLN course?
LOG IN PROCEDURES:
Your user name is now called Laker NetID. For students, your Laker NetID is the first part of your Oswego email address, the name that comes before"@oswego.edu" . For faculty, your Laker NetID is the user name used to log-in to your SUNY Oswego email account. Check the PeopleSearch directory if you're unsure of your user name and address.
If you're new to Oswego, you need to activate your Oswego email account first. Activation takes 24 hours. Your password is your Oswego account password that you selected when you activated your email account. If you need help in determining your user name or Oswego password, contact the SUNY Oswego CTS Help Desk: 315-312-3456 If you can't remember your Oswego password, you can use this form to reset your password. This change takes 24 hours to process.
When do courses start?
All of Oswego's SLN courses officially begin the first day of the semester. In addition, most of our online courses are accessible one week prior to the official start date of the semester. This allows students the opportunity to get into the virtual course and learn how to navigate their way around the web and the course so they are more confident once the course actually starts.
Do I have to be online at a specific time?
No. SLN courses are asynchronous. That means you can log onto the web any time that is convenient for you -- morning, noon or night. However, instructors may tell students that they are expected to log on a certain number of times per week (example-3 times/week) and that they need to participate each time they log on (e.g., submit an assignment or participate in the discussion). Each credit-bearing course runs 15 weeks in the fall or spring, and 12 weeks in the summer. EVERYTHING is done online; there are NO face-to-face meetings.
Am I really part of the class?
Yes. All faculty design the learning experience in a way that challenges you to do your best as an individual; many courses have group activities that build a very strong learning community.
How do I get my textbooks if I am from out of the area?
The College Store at Oswego State is ready and willing to ship the books to students.Each course that requires a text will list the required materials. There is generally a hotlink and an email address for students to use to contact the College Store. Students requesting that books be sent to them will incur a nominal shipping fee.
How do I know if the course will transfer to my college?
The best thing to do, whether you are transferring a course to Oswego or from Oswego, is to work with an advisor from the college or university that you intend to graduate. That individual should be able to help you determine whether the course in which you are enrolling meets the requirements for your degree program.
The easiest way to find Oswego course descriptions is to check current semester classes offered at the myoswego web site.
Whom do I call for more information?
If you have any questions about Distance Learning that are not addressed here, please contact the Division of Extended Learning for more details at 315-312-2270 or by email at email@example.com
What if I have a complaint?
SUNY students should attempt to resolve complaints with the SUNY school itself. The Student Handbook usually describes the appropriate procedures. If you are unsuccessful in doing so, please use this Website from the State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO).
