Frequently Asked Questions

How do online courses work?

An online course brings the classroom direct to you through your home or work computer. Class sessions, course materials, exercises, and even field trips are accessible any time and any day convenient to you. All of your coursework, including discussions, group work, and writing assignments, is done electronically. You simply log into your course through a web browser, and you're in class.

So are online courses self-paced?

No, most are not. Depending on the instructor, you will have assignments that require you to communicate with other students just as you would in a face-to-face course. Most online courses require you to adhere to due dates for assignments, quizzes, tests, etc. If you register for an online course, expect to finish the course on the instructor's timeline, not yours.

Do all online courses look and work the same?

No. Instructors have complete control over the design and organization of their courses. Just as instructors individualize face-to-face courses, they tend to do the same for online courses. Make sure you familiarize yourself with the course early in the semester in order to become comfortable with navigating to important materials. Also keep in mind that most instructors are not online all day and might not reply to your questions right away. Check the syllabus to see if your instructor details his or her response policy.

Will I ever have to physically report to a location for class?

Well, that depends. Some of our career certification programs require “hands-on” field work or provide for an internship. If this is required, it will be explained in the course details.

What are all the different types of Course that you offer?

We offer 4 main types of courses:

Self-Paced: Take these courses at your own pace, anytime you want, for the duration of your course/program license.

Instructor-Led or ILT: Get instruction from a virtual instructor and meet with peers over the duration of your course/program license. In some cases, class materials will be provided.

Mentor-Led: Get the benefit of taking the course at your own pace in conjunction with direct access to Mentor Support for the duration of your course/program license.

Learning Plan: A Bundle of online courses typically tied to a Certification Track or key content areas provided at lower price than buying the courses individually.

Can I get a refund?

Refunds or transfers may be requested prior to the start of ANY class by emailing goalonline@vegaspbs.org.

Once a class has launched, the sale is final.

For traditional instructor-led classes where the class has been cancelled due to low enrollment, students will be notified by GOAL staff. At that time, the student may request a refund or placement into the next scheduled section.
