« Back  |  12.05.2018 - ASU Prep Digital

If you’re thinking about making the transition from traditional schooling to online learning at ASU Prep Digital, you’re probably curious as to what your day-to-day will consist of. Whether you choose to enroll part time or full time, you’ll have the tools you need to succeed every step of the way. Here’s what you can expect your day to look like as an ASU Prep Digital student:

Part Time:

Students who enroll part time take 1 to 3 courses with us, usually while still attending a traditional school. For each course, you’ll be spending about 4 hours per week between live lessons and working on your assignments. As a part-time student, you will typically start your ASU Prep Digital work by logging into your student dashboard to check for updates or messages from your learning success coach, teachers, or fellow students. It’s important that you take a minute to reply to those messages and check-in with your coach and teacher with any questions or concerns—then jump into some coursework. This can involve watching course videos, reading articles, reviewing course modules and working on outstanding lessons. Each week your teacher will host a live video forum which you can join or watch the recorded version at your convenience.

Full Time:

Students who enroll full time take 4 or more courses with us, dedicating an average of 5 hours per day on schoolwork. The best part? You get to choose your schedule. If you’re more of a morning person, get your school day started early. If you need a few more hours of rest before jumping in, start a little later and go until the early evening. Having the flexibility allows you to make time for other activities in your life, such as clubs or sports. Your daily routine consists of checking in with your learning success coach and teachers, as needed, to get a pulse on how your pacing your way through each course and working out the plan that you created at the beginning of the semester. You’ll balance your time between working through lessons, watching course videos and reading materials that relate to your subjects. You’ll have weekly live lessons with your teachers and you may even schedule a chat with them if you’re in need of additional help in a particular subject.

Being an ASU Prep Digital student is convenient and challenging, giving you a taste of what learning at the college level is like all from the comfort of your own home or favorite coffee shop.
Every day is different and affords you incredible opportunities to develop your leadership and critical thinking skills.
