27 Course Schedule – Fall 2018

Marriage and the Family – Discussion and Assignment Due Dates 

I suggest that you print this page and keep it next to your computer for frequent reference.

The course opens several days before the first official day of class so that you can “poke around” and become familiar with the Course Information documents, Course Calander, and general layout of the course.  If you are new to online learning – or the Generals Online learning management system – you should complete the Open SUNY Student Orientation as soon as possible.  The link to the Student Orientation is on the Generals Online Home Page as well as your personal Generals Online Home Page.
