Regular and Substantive Interaction

In compliance with federal law, Truman requires students and faculty to demonstrate evidence of regular and substantive interaction in their courses. Students are expected to engage in their online course within the first calendar week of class (defined as ending the Saturday of the first week of the academic term). Students who fail to do so will be administratively dropped from their courses.

Faculty will describe their expectations for interaction in their syllabus. Even when a course is being offered asynchronously, you are expected to regularly engage with the content throughout the term.
