The UC-LINK program provides a means for you to continue your education while at sea or on deployment when internet service is not available. The UC-LINK offers courses at the Associate’s, Bachelor’s and Master’s levels which are portable, self-paced, convenient, and easy to use. The courses are designed to mirror the interactive learning activities characteristic of our online and hybrid delivered courses and to reflect the best practices of adult learning methodology.
UC-LINK courses are available through a custom learning management platform. On this platform, students can download all of the required course materials before losing internet availability. Students can work through and later submit the course assignments electronically according to the schedule recommended in the syllabus.
Currently, no UC-LINK courses require a proctor.
Students will be required to download to their personal computer or storage device a course packet, syllabus, and instructional materials from the UC-LINK learning management platform, and purchase any relevant textbooks. During times that internet service is available, servicemember can upload completed work through this same learning management platform. Textbooks may be purchased through the UC Bookstore http://eagleshop.ucwv.edu/home.aspx or through other commercial sources using the ISBN numbers provided on the syllabus. Textbooks ordered from the UC Bookstore may be charged to the student’s UC account once registered.
All of the major coursework in the Frontline Leadership, A.S., Organizational Leadership B. S., and the Strategic Leadership M.S., degrees are available through UC-LINK. Student may view the courses here, UCLINK courses. The UC-LINK program coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org, can answer any questions you may have about course content or assignments.
Planning ahead is vital to your success. We recommend starting the enrollment process 3 weeks prior the course start date to ensure securing TA Authorization and timely delivery of course materials. You can get started with 3 quick steps
A student who has officially registered assumes full responsibility for completing courses. If a course drop/withdrawal is necessary, it is the student’s responsibility to complete the University of Charleston Course Drop Form.
UC-LINK courses are available to bridge the gap in educational progression created by deployments or internet inaccessibility. Servicemembers are expected to switch between online or hybrid courses to UC-LINK courses to fit their schedule. Contact your Advisor to enact any changes in enrollment option.
