Are the courses self-paced?
No, FTTA Online courses are not self-paced. There are lessons and written assignments that must be completed on time each week. But you do not have to be online at the same time with the other learners in your class. You can do your weekly assignments at any time, day or night.
Can I change my time zone during the term?
Can I drop a course?
A learner may drop a class according to the following deadlines and conditions:
Can I print out the lessons so I can read them at a later time?
Yes, you can print them for your personal study; however, for copyright
purposes, nothing you print should be distributed to anyone under any
Can I request to be in the same class as another learner or a group of learners?
Yes, groups are invited to sign up and go through the class together. If you would like to take a course together with someone else or with a particular group of learners, each learner must individually send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and request to be put into the same class as the other learner(s) listed by name (not, for example, "the other saints from Anaheim"). We must do this to respect the intentions of all the learners involved. We will do our best to accommodate all requests that are received by the Saturday before the term begins. Due to program restraints we may not be able to fulfill some requests.
Can I share the course lessons with others?
Can I skip a term?
Yes, you do not have to take courses in consecutive terms. You are
welcome to sit out for as long as you like and return at any time as
long as you have passed the courses you have taken. If you have failed a
course, please see “What if I fail a course.”
Can I take more than one course at a time?
Yes, you can take more than one course per term depending upon your available time and capacity, but most learners take one per term.
Can I use my iPhone, iPad, Android tablet, or smartphone to take classes in FTTA-OL?
Do I get a grade in the course?
Yes, each course is graded. You accumulate points each week based on assignments that you complete and submit. Over the eight-week course period the total number of points that can be accumulated is 100. Grades are posted at the end of each week.
