The institution’s best practice for online learning recommends that faculty respond to student communications within 24 hours, and provide feedback on student submissions within 72 hours from the assignment due date.

General Technology Requirements

Each student will be provided with a USU Google G Suite for Education account. This includes:

  • Email
  • Calendar
  • Google Drive
  • YouTube

Students’ USU email accounts are critical to their success and should be the primary form of communication within the University.

We also recommend students registering for a free Office 365 account using their USU email; this will allow online access to all of Microsoft’s Office Applications (Excel, PowerPoint and Word). Instructions on how to register will be made available during your orientation course.

Some courses may require additional software to complete the course successfully; more information will be provided upon registration.
