First, check your class schedule at http://my.southwest.tn.edu to make sure you are currently enrolled.
It is good practice, whether your class is in PAWS or not, to contact your instructor. Your instructor will not contact you first.
Email (or phone) your instructor. Let them know your name, what class you are in (including the section number). If you have any questions or concerns about the class, this is a good time to let the instructor know.
If you have not heard from your instructor within 24 hours contact the department chair for assistance in contacting your instructor. You can find the department chair's contact information by using our list of Departmental Contacts: http://deit.southwest.tn.edu/directory/
Theses courses are delivered using various methods, and you can find additional information about each on the Distance Education website: http://deit.southwest.tn.edu/courses/
Southwest's online classes begin on the same day as on-campus classes. You will not be able to access your course until the first day of school. This information is published on the college's Academic Calendar: http://www.southwest.tn.edu/events/
TN eCampus courses may start on a different day than Southwests courses. If you're enrolled in an TN eCampus course, please visit https://gotoclass.tnecampus.org/ for more information. TN eCampus course access does not begin until after 3 pm on the first day of the semester.
This depends on whether or not you're registered for a Southwest online class or a TN eCampus online class. If you don't know, you'll need to look at your schedule to find your class's section number. For example, if you're registered for ACAD 1111-L01, the "L01" part is the section number.
Numbers like L01, L02, L03 are Southwest classes. For these, you would log in to PAWS: http://elearn.southwest.tn.edu.
If the section is R50, you're in an TN eCampus class, and would log in at http://gotoclass.tnecampus.org.
You will need to contact the secretary for the department in which the instructor teaches. If you still are unable to contact your instructor, your next step would be to speak with the department chair.
Department and Faculty contact information is available at: https://deit.southwest.tn.edu/directory/
If you are in a TN eCampus class and you are unable to contact your instructor, please e-mail email@example.com and the TN eCampus Student Liaison will work to assist you.
