So as an online student, maybe you’re not spending your summer break sitting by the pool. But even if you’re busy, there are a few things you can do to prepare for school in the fall that will make your life easier once the semester starts up again.
If you don’t already have Internet at your house, get it. This is absolutely necessary for online students. What good is the flexibility of an online degree program if you have to worry that the internet connection you’re “borrowing” from a neighbor will fail at the wrong time, or go to a library or café to study? Go with an Internet service that can handle the demands of delivering your online classes.
