Spelman College Summer Online Courses
 

High Quality Instruction. Top-tier Faculty. The Spelman Difference.

It's the best of both worlds. All classes are taught by faculty trained in online instruction and underscore the top-tier education that has become Spelman's hallmark.

 

The Online Learning Advantage

Number 1

Benefits That Yield Lasting Returns

One of the real advantages of taking Spelman online courses vs. online courses at other institutions is that when classes are taken anywhere else, those courses come into Spelman as transfer credit hours only. The grades themselves do not contribute to students' Spelman GPA (so two As elsewhere do not add to your GPA at Spelman). The Spelman online courses advantage is that our online courses DO count towards GPAs.
Number 2
Another benefit of taking classes online is flexibility. Some of our courses are synchronous or “live,” which means that everyone in the class is online at the same time. Other courses are fully asynchronous, where students log on according to their schedule. Still other courses have components of both (hybrid). Look for those designations with the course descriptions. The class sizes at Spelman are also limited, which helps to maintain our goal of quality over quantity.

Summer Online Course Tuition

While we have been piloting online instruction for the past four years, the tuition for Spelman's online learning courses has been offered at a discounted rate. In this last year of the pilot, we can still offer summer online courses at the discounted rate of $1,600 per course (after this time, online courses at Spelman will be offered at our established, on-ground class rate). Pell grant funds can be applied to tuition. Get in on this SALE!

Payment

Acceptable forms of payment are check, credit card or debit card. Payment must be made within 24 hours upon registering. Registrations not paid within 24 hours may be canceled and the space offered to a wait-listed student. Refunds will not be offered once the official class start date has occurred (summer session begins June 1, 2020).

Payment Process

Once course selection has been completed, students will need to log into the Student Accounts Office Payment Suite to pay for their course. The Student Accounts Suite is a secured, password-protected, 24-7 service offered to students and their authorized users for managing their student account.

Summer Online Course Availability

Access to your course in Moodle is available once registration, including payment, is complete. Students will have access to their Moodle course at least one week before the start of the semester/session. Students who register for a course after the start of the session will be able to access their Moodle course 24 hours after their registration has been processed.

Types of Online Courses: Synchronous Learning vs. Asynchronous Learning

Synchronous Learning and Asynchronous Learning refer to the type of online experience -- although they have their differences, both refer to time.

Synchronous Learning

  • Require both the students and professor to be online at the same time
  • Lectures, discussions, and presentations occur at a specific hour
  • All students must be online at that specific hour in order to participate

Asynchronous Learning

  • Allows students to take online courses on your own schedule
  • Instructors provide materials, lectures, tests, and assignments that can be accessed at any time
  • Students may be given a time frame, however, in which work must be completed

Hybrid Learning

  • A mixture of both asynchronous and synchronous learning
  • Each course description will indicate what hours are synchronous
  • Synchronous times could be used for office hours, testing, or class discussion
