Hi Miya, we’d encourage you to reach out to your instructors and advisor ASAP so we can help you catch up later. :)
William Carduner

Also try to inform your instructors if you have access to email.
Miya Cooper
51:30
awesome thank you
William Carduner
52:35
We try to reach out to students primarily by phone. We recommended setting up voicemail if you have not already done so.
Amy Hanson
53:51
You can also schedule a zoom meetings with your advisor if phone is not the best option. Just let your advisor know that zoom is best for meetings.

Caitlin Schaller
59:02
Is there a way to connect with all the students in our department, besides the FB group. A student roster for the dept?
Lushia Tholenaar
59:29
How do we mark attendance in our online classes?
Emily Hilton
59:36
If we have an appointment with an advisor over Zoom, is a webcam required/expected? Or is it not entirely necessary to have?
Mackenzie CASTLE
59:47
you have all been so helpful! I can't thank you enough :)
William Carduner
59:48
You will be connected to your permanent advisor shortly after the fall semester starts. You are currently assigned to an admissions advisor.
Diana Delgado
59:58
For automatic/auto-bill tuition payments, will we be receiving some sort of receipt every time a payment is made automatically?
Sudha Iyer
01:00:20
Work study does offer remote jobs. Please reach out to the work study dept -workstudy@academyart.edu
Jessica Zhang
01:00:26
Hi Lushia, online students have to login a few times a week, to participate by posting discussions, submit assignments on time for each week. That’s how we check attendance.
William Carduner
01:00:38
You attendance is marked in online classes by submitting homework at the end of the weekly module. We recommend signing in throughout the week to make a post in the online discussion in order to keep up your participation grade.
Jeff Yarbrough
01:00:50
As a graduate of 2 prior online degree programs; I would recommend building it into your daily routine when you check your email
William Carduner
01:01:32
You do not need a webcam for Zoom appointments. Appointments are audio only.
Kathleen_ArtU
01:01:55
Town Halls are just starting to get scheduled to be held in a Zoom webinar like this one. Keep any eye out on this blog to access registration links. I will start to add registration info the 2nd week of September, but town halls won’t start until end of Sept and through Oct: http://blogs.academyart.edu/chats/current-student-chats.html
Emily Lutner
01:02:06
I figured I’d ask even though I know the classes are time management based, but is there a set schedule for classes?
Jeff Yarbrough
01:02:25
even if you don't have something to post. Logging in daily is a good way to keep it in the back of your mind so you can see what was recently posted and you can be formulating necessary responses
Sabina Monroe
01:02:39
can online students also do work studies, volunteering and or internships?
William Carduner
01:02:42
The most common reason students receive lower grades in online classes is because they do not participate in the discussion throughout the week.
