3 Page 3 Getting Started Welcome Welcome to PUC s Online RN/BS Completion Program. You may be wondering several things now. What do I do now? How do I prepare for my online classes? What do I do on the first day of class? All of these questions are common to new students in this program. Five weeks is a short amount of time to complete a course and we re certain you want to be prepared so you can be successful. You will be immersed in your course during that time so there are some things you will want to do ahead of time to make things run more smoothly. This handbook will help you with that process and preparation. What do I do now? Read the instructions in this handbook and any instructions carefully. You want to watch for an important from Purdue Admissions with your PUID number and mypuc login information. Please read it carefully, print it and keep them in a safe place for future reference. You can even write down some of the important information like your career account user name on page 5 of this handbook. You ll use this information to access mypuc, Blackboard Learn, PUC library, and other school related resources. You ll also have to access two important systems; mypuc (your portal to Purdue Calumet including your Gmail Purdue Calumet account and DegreeWorks), and PUC Blackboard Learn (your course management system for the nursing courses). Login to these systems. Browse around and familiarize yourself with their layout and design. Being aware of these systems, recognizing how they look and reading important information before classes start will be an important part of your success in this fast paced program.
4 Page 4 Getting Started (Continued) How do I prepare for my first class? There are several things you ll do to prepare for your first class. After you complete your orientation, you will Mary Martinez, Registration Coordinator RN/BS Program, to request registration into your first course. Mary has to register all first time students. The next thing you ll need to do is make sure that your computer meets the minimal requirements (see page 11) and is functioning the way you need it to before your first day of class. You can also find these requirements at under Student Services access FAQs for Technology. You ll also want to check out the text book list. We would recommend checking this list at least one month before each class starts to make sure a book has not been updated with the newest edition or changed altogether. You will need to plan to spend at least 3 to 4 hours per credit hour each week on top of the time you ll need to spend completing and submitting assignments in the course. In other words, you ll spend 9 to 12 hours a week immersed in a 3 credit hour course besides the time you ll need to complete and submit your assignments. You ll spend this time reading materials, reading posts from the professor, coach, and other classmates, viewing lectures and accessing information in the online library. So, plan ahead and make sure you schedule your time wisely. Remember, 5 weeks will go by fast and it s better to stay on top of things from the very beginning in order to successfully complete your course. What do I do on my first day of class? Now that you ve prepared for your first day of class, what do you do when that day comes? You will want to log in to that class sometime during the day. Review the syllabus for the course, familiarize yourself with the contents of the files available to you and check for any assignments your professor has assigned. If you are having difficulties accessing your course, you will want to check you own computer settings and connections to make sure there problem is not on your end. Once you have tried that, you can then contact the Blackboard Learn help desk at If nothing seems to work (and you know it isn t your own personal computer issue) you should or call your academic coach or instructor. Although you may be concerned about how fast the course may go in that 5 week time period, the first day may take a little time to get everyone in and acclimated to the format of that particular class. Don t panic, but be proactive.

Types of Financial Aid Federal Pell Grant: The federal government offers Pell Grants to undergraduate students in need, which is the foundation of a student s financial aid package. Eligible students must be enrolled in a minimum of 1 credit hour. Federal Direct Subsidized Stafford Loan: For students with financial need based on the results of your FAFSA. Recipients must be enrolled at least half-time (6 credit hours). Recipients are not charged interest while in school at least half-time and during grace or deferment periods.

Recipients must be enrolled at least half-time (6 credit hours).

You must be enrolled in a minimum 6 credit hours at PUC to qualify for financial aid. Federal Pell Grant awards will be based on your enrollment as of the census date and will not be adjusted for subsequent increases or decreases in enrollment.

Stafford Loans will be adjusted for changes in enrollment. If you fall below 6 credit hours your eligibility may change. If refunds have been issued, you may have to return funds to the university.
