09/5/2017: High School Original Credit Courses Start Today
Good morning from the MTDA offices at the University of Montana in Missoula!
The MTDA Fall 2017 High School Original Credit program starts today, Tuesday, September 5, 2017! Courses opened at 8 am this morning and we hope you are as excited to get started as we are excited to work with you this fall!
We sent out an important email to all students yesterday afternoon with information about getting logged in and started. If you didn’t receive that email, the important bits appear below. It is important that you get up and started ASAP!
Usernames and Passwords
As of the day of enrollment, all student usernames and passwords were emailed to students. If you do not have your username and password, please contact the MTDA help desk at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are a past student at MTDA, a new username will NOT be emailed to you, and you should use your existing login and password. If you don’t remember that login, please contact the help desk.
Our original credit Fall 2017 semester starts tomorrow, September 5, 2017. Classrooms will be open by 8 am tomorrow morning! It is important that you get up and started this week as there are assignments and expectations for you in the course due soon. Students that are not logged in and up to pace by week’s end risk being dropped from the course so don’t delay your start! Remember, MTDA runs its own academic calendar, so, we may differ from your local school’s calendar.
The last day of the program is Friday, January 19, 2018. No assignments will be accepted after 5 pm on that day.
Although the virtual classrooms are open for access and student work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, our classes are considered “in session” Monday-Friday, per our academic calendar located at http://montanadigitalacademy.org/programs/mtda-academic-calendars/.
MTDA has a brief orientation program for students and parents. You may access our orientation-on-demand program available by clicking here: http://mtda.link/fall17orientation. That program includes information on how and where to log in.
Throughout the semester, please don’t be afraid to contact your instructor for help as soon as you run into problems. Additionally, you may contact the MTDA help desk at email@example.com for technical support, or assistance contacting an instructor if you are not getting a response. We want you to be successful in your MTDA course!
Have a GREAT semester! We are honored to serve you and hope you will call on us right away if you experience any issues!
