You should expect to spend as much time on an online course as you do in a face-to-face course. As a rough guide, you should plan to spend six to ten hours per week on this course. The actual amount of time will vary from individual to individual. This estimate includes the time you spend in reading and assignments.
You will have access to all course materials from the start of the course to the end. You may look and study ahead, or go back and review, at any time during the course. All assignments must be completed within one year of the date you start the course.
You have one full year from your date of registration to complete this course, if you are receiving federal or private aid, requirements may differ. However, the minimum requirement for course completion, regardless of the number of credit hours, is six weeks. No student may complete course requirements in less than six weeks.
It is important to schedule your course study to fit into your academic plan. Be aware many instructors are not on campus during the holidays or term breaks, which can delay the return of corrected assignments. Therefore, if you have important deadlines to meet such as graduation, be sure to complete and submit all of your assignments and take the final examination as scheduled. It is your responsibility to ensure the credits for this course will apply toward graduation or certification deadlines.
At the completion of the course, the student should be able to:
Apply accounting theory when recording basic financial transactions. Theory includes concepts such as accruals and the matching principle. The student should be able to distinguish between proper and improper coding of routine business transactions.
Communicate using the language of accounting at the introductory level. Your ability to communicate effectively at this level will be tested on every exam, including the final. Homework problems will reinforce the learning process.
Convert basic financial transactions, originally written in English, into accounting, using debits, credits and account numbers. This recording or journalizing process will be addressed in all assignments and exams throughout the course.
Prepare and interpret basic financial statements. Your progress in achieving this objective will be measured by your scores on regular exams, assignments and the final exam. Exercises are listed at the end of each chapter to help achieve this objective.
Score a or better average on all course requirements. This requirement can be met through the combined average of all assignments and exams. The student will demonstrate knowledge learned based on all the material covered in the course.
