We're here to help...


The Office of Online Learning is committed to helping students succeed by providing a variety of services, including support for online courses; assistance with Blackboard Learning Management System; and exam proctoring.

Academic services at the Office of Online Learning are available to students in Hattiesburg, at Gulf Park, and fully online students who never come to campus.  No matter where you are, we are here for you.


RESOURCES FOR ONLINE STUDENTS

Students enrolled in fully online programs have unique needs and may need a local point of contact.   On-campus students who enroll in online classes may also find situations where they need assistance.  The Office of Online Learning has an online student support specialist who advocates for online students, answers questions, furnishes  resources, and helps along the way.

PROCTORING

When your professor expects you to take a proctored exam, contact the Office of Online Learning.  Whether you need help scheduling a proctored exam or just have questions, visit the QUICK LINKS on the right side of this page to learn more.


BLACKBOARD

Students have 24/7 access to Blackboard support and the Office of Online Learning has developed a number of help documents, guides, and resources for taking an online course.  Visit the STUDENT SUPPORT link at the top of this page to find these materials or get assistance.
