As a distance education student, each of you is a member of a cohort with a program manager assigned to you through Distance Education. Your cohort's program manager is there to help you interface with campus resources and will hold an orientation at which you will receive very important information about your program. Please make every effort to attend.
In addition, the Graduate School holds an on-campus orientation each fall and spring in Boone, and you are cordially invited to attend to meet the graduate school staff and learn about the Graduate School policies in person.
Our distance education students are important to us and we want you to feel as much a part of this community as our main campus students, please let us know how we can serve you. In addition to the excellent staff in the Office of Extension and Distanced Eduation, graduate school staff are available and happy to answer your questions.
