Southern Union offers several subjects for online courses, ranging from 098 courses to more advanced classes. To find lists of offered online courses, you can call Student Services or read "The Southerner" (the Southern Union campus newspaper) at the beginning of each semester. Online courses are completed by using the Blackboard system. At the beginning of each semester, especially for students new to Blackboard, each class is offered a tutorial on how to use the system. This includes where to find your grades and assignments, as well as testing and quizzes.
You must be knowledgeable of the Internet and how to use a flash drive to transfer any work. If the students should need help with the Blackboard program, the professors are on hand to assist. Professors at Southern Union are always willing to help students; all you have to do is ask them.
