Complete Your Checklist

Each fall and spring semester we will ask you to verify your information and confirm that you are an active and attending student.  We do that through the checklist application on the MyUSF. 

The checklist is always available on the home page of the MyUSF but before each fall and spring semester you will get a pop up when you log into MyUSF, asking you to review your checklist. 

When you are ready to complete the checklist requirements “launch” the application and select "view".

  • The checklist will include several “tracks” for you to complete. 
    • Admissions track will require you to turn in an immunization form.  Click here to download the form.
    • Security track is where you request your Parking Pass and confirm your ID.
    • USF track is where you can opt in to Emergency Alerts.
  • Select “view” to open and view the tracks.  You will see several required tracks, each with colors assigned.  The colors determine if the track is required (red), optional (blue), pending (yellow), or completed (green)
  • On many of the tracks, you will just need to confirm the information and select “confirm” at the top of the page.
  • Once all of the checks are green, you have completed the required applications.

Take a Practice Course ONO100 DCP

Everyone at some point in time in their journey in the Degree Completion Program will take an online class. USF has created ONO100, an online practice course designed to provide students with an overview of what to expect in an online format.  This course must be completed to begin the DCP Program.

Please contact me at DCP@usiouxfalls.edu to get registered.  Once you are registered you can find the course in My.USF / All My Courses / ONO100 (DCP).  Please go through this course in its entirety.

Thank you - LuAnn Grossman, Director

Know Your Online Course Expectations

USF requires that online courses have the same expectations and requirements as on-campus courses.  Online courses are instructor led and have scheduled readings, assignments, discussions and exams.  They are considered accelerated with accelerated timelines. Online students will be expected to:

Δ  Spend a minimum of 10 hours per week commitment on your coursework and activities.

Δ  Have a webcam.

Δ  Check your courses on MyUSF daily to keep current with assignments and requirements.

Δ  Participate in course activities.

Δ  Complete all assignments by the given due date.

Δ  Complete all coursework independently unless otherwise noted.

Δ  Hand in assignments and actively participate in group work.  Any time you fail to do so, it will be counted as an absence.

Δ  Abide by any additional guidelines set by the instructor (see course syllabus).

In order to be successful at online learning you will need to set and maintain a schedule which allows you to keep up with your coursework and assignments. It is vital to stay current with the concepts taught. If at any time you feel you do not understand what is being taught, please contact your instructor. You can meet through WebEx or by phone to make sure you do not fall behind.

Complete Your Student Survey at the End of Your Course

The IDEA Student Survey is our evaluation tool used for nearly every class in DCP. It is extremely important to complete this survey, as it is used to make adjustments and curriculum changes.

  • You will receive your survey through email. 
  • Faculty may give you class time to complete it.
  • Just fill it out and submit it online.
