Prevent Student Drops


Many students drop their fully online classes because they weren’t prepared.   FGA has student self-assessment questionnaire available to determine a student’s readiness for taking a fully online class.


Online Student Orientation and Self-Assessment


Encourage your students to use the FGA Self-assessment questionnaire BEFORE they register for your fully online class.  This questionnaire will give your students an idea whether or not they have the personality traits, learning aptitude, technical knowledge, hardware and software, and study skills for online learning.


The FGA Online Orientation offers an overview as to how online learning works, how courses are set up, what tools are generally used, what is expected of you, how interaction takes place, and how to succeed online.


On-campus Student Orientations


On-campus Student Orientation to NG sessions are scheduled each quarter. Watch the FGA homepage for date, times, and place.
