    I can only give tips for those who are virtual students. The biggest tip would be at the beginning of each semester, for every class make sure you print off your class calendar with the due by dates. This is extremely helpful since you aren't in a classroom every day and don't have a teacher to remind you daily. If you have any questions make sure you ask. This is including your advisors. They are each there for a reason and want to help.

    Make sure you know what you are getting into. Explore the town itself, not just the campus. If you are used to and like the hustle and bustle of big cities and big towns then this probably isn't the place for you.

    Do your research on the website, and learn everything you can about your program. If there is one criticism of FHSU, it is the advisors! You will need to figure out your schedule for yourself, basically, because getting help from the advisors is pulling teeth. Beyond the issue with the advisors, the classes are easy to enroll in and the online student experience with Blackboard is very simple.

    I can only speak from an online perspective, but I do have a tip or two for those who plan to go in the virtual direction. It takes a lot of self-discipline to do strictly online learning. Therefore, be focused and committed to not only complete assignments on time, but also take that extra step (for at least some classes) for self-learning. In other words, expand on the curriculum by researching on your own. Most instructors are very good at getting back with you in a timely manner, but it is not the same as being face-to-face. So take the initiative to either ask or research what you need to know to fully understand the subject matter. The bottom line here is TRY not to procrastinate, which is very easy to do when you are an online learner. Another tip would be to not hesitate to ask your instructor (normally via email) when you do not understand a particular concept and do this long before any testing. I know this seems obvious, however, with some instructors it can take longer to get back with you and if you wait too long it may be too late.
