CHEM100-Online & CHEM100L-Online are NOT SELF-PACED courses. There are set due dates for assignments and exams.
CO-REQUISITE STRICTLY ENFORCED:
MUST be enrolled in CHEM100L (laboratory) at ANY SDCCD campus (Miramar, Mesa or City). However, this lecture coordinates best with Miramar labs, especially the online lab. If you are not co-enrolled in lab and have not passed the lab in a previous semester, you must obtain a waiver from Admissions and have it signed by the department chair.
Otherwise, as per department policy, you will be dropped and preference given to waitlisted students who are enrolled in the lab.
ALL STUDENTS PRESENTLY REGISTERED MUST ATTEND ORIENTATION or else will be dropped from the course.
Arrange your work and personal schedules NOW to accommodate this date and time. NO EXCEPTIONS!
THOSE WISHING TO ADD MUST ALSO ATTEND! First, put yourself on the Waiting List via Reg-e or ClassTalk. Add codes may be distributed depending on the attendance of registered students. NO GUARANTEES - but you MUST be present at orientation in order to add. NO EXCEPTIONS!
For registered students: Follow the directions on the mailing (that will be sent by SDCCD-Online prior to the start of classes) or the info found on the link below to log in to the course starting July 7. DON'T WAIT UNTIL ORIENTATION TO GET STARTED.

CHARACTERISTICS OF SUCCESSFUL DISTANCE LEARNERS from The Distance Learner's Guide, Western Cooperative, George P. Connick, ed., Prentice Hall, 1999.
"Those who succeed as distance learners
-- are highly motivated
-- are independent
-- are active learners
-- have good organizational and time management skills
-- have the discipline to study without external reminders
-- can adapt to new learning environments
..."The fact is that you are likely to find that distance learning is more, not less, demanding than learning through traditional means."
ALSO, you need to be adept at reading and following WRITTEN instructions.
