Where do I go from here?


Course start and end dates

Your course start and end dates are listed in the Introductory email you receive once you are fully registered in your course. These dates determine when you start and when you must complete the course (disregard the “Meeting Information” field for FRL course sections in your web advisor through eServices).

From your start date, you will have six months to complete the entire course, including all quizzes, midterms and final exams. If your course is not completed by this end date, an “F” grade will appear on your transcript.

  • If you have a Student Loan, you should confirm with Student Loans or UNB Financial Services when your course needs to be completed.

Once you have received and read the Introductory email, it is advisable to log-in and ensure you are able to access your course.

There are some wonderful perks available to you when you take an Online Course at UNB.

MICROSOFT OFFICE SUITE:

You can download Microsoft Office Suite for FREE to your home computer! You can also have your UNB email for life.

UNB LIBRARIES:

If you are not on campus, you can still log-in and use the library resources!

If you need help navigating the library, visit their “contact us” section. You can even correspond with them over a live chat. This nifty guide is also very informative.

If you are not in New Brunswick you can also borrow books from the millions of copies that UNB has available by registering for distance home delivery.

UNB BOOKSTORE:

Many online courses require a textbook. Details are provided in the course syllabus. It is the responsibility of the student to order course texts. Many textbooks can be ordered from the UNB Bookstore, or from online vendors like Amazon or Chapters. If you find an older edition of a textbook, please confirm with your course Instructor before making any purchases.
