How to Be a Successful Online Student

Ayron Walker, UNT Student, working on a laptop

With the abrupt transition to online classes, many individuals had to quickly adapt to the extremely different lifestyle of being an online student. And as someone who made a point to avoid online classes for the past two years as a UNT student, I was having a very hard time making deadlines, effectively studying, and juggling work without the structure that comes with having in-person classes and a campus that allowed me to have a set schedule and a place to work without distractions. I had to change everything about the way I handled my coursework-- and fast. So here are some tips that I picked up on my journey to becoming a successful online student.
