First online course? Join us for an ELI Orientation Webinar (rain, snow, or shine the webinar will go on!) – The ELI Orientation is a general overview for students enrolled in courses offered through the Extended Learning Institute. This one hour webinar will focus on getting started in your courses, navigating your Blackboard course site, and identifying tips for success and student support services.
Still looking to add a spring course? ELI offers several later starting sessions. Enroll today! Once you enroll, tuition is due by 5pm the following business day. Schedule a virtual appointment with an ELI Counselor with any academic advising questions.
