Occasionally a student will encounter an issue with an online course that he or she doesn’t know how to resolve. When this occurs, students should always contact the instructor first. Most issues are resolved when a student communicates their frustrations/concerns with the instructor. Students are encouraged to review the appropriate guidelines for each WVU campus. See the links below.
