How long are the courses?
Each course will offer you 16 separate teachings of 25 minutes each in the form of video streaming classes with supplemental reading selections and valuable student interaction opportunities.
What is the first course that I need to take? Is there any order or priority in taking courses?
Students are not bound to any order and may pursue courses at their discretion. However, to receive credits toward academic awards, all course requirements must be met.
What is available in a course?
Courses are designed to simulate a classroom experience. A course includes high-quality video of each lecture, thorough study notes, required reading, student discussions, staff–student interaction, and graded tests.
How does the exam system work?
The exam link is under each Module on the course menu. The time limit is stated on your exam. Exams consist of a set of multiple-choice and true or false questions. When completed, review your answers and click “submit all and finish.” Your exam grade will be posted on your user report within six (6) hours of taking the exam. If your score is below 70, you should plan to re-take the exam after more study.
Is there a time limit for taking exams?
There is a time limit for each exam. The time limit is different for different exams and is stated at the top of your exam page. Students may take an exam three (3) times to receive a passing grade.
Is there a time limit to complete course material?
Students are allowed to complete courses at their own pace with the understanding that once enrolled in any particular class, they should complete it within a three (3) month period. A student is un-enrolled automatically from any class in which there is no activity for ninety days. A student is no longer considered to have “active” status if there is no activity for six (6) months.
When are the courses available?
You can begin a course at any time and work through the material whenever it is convenient for your schedule. Once you begin a course, you will have 3 months to view the lectures and complete all assignments for that individual course. You have the freedom to work at your own pace and when it is convenient for you within this time frame.
I would like to view some of your material before enrolling. Is this possible?
Yes, from time to time some courses can be accessed by registering with SMT. To open the course, on the SMT homepage click “create new account” to access the course. Feel free to explore the different aspects of the course to help decide if further study is of interest to you.
Will SMT credits transfer to an accredited university?
In some instances, SMT students have had their work recognized, but we cannot guarantee that others will honor our work at this point. Credit transfer is done on a more select basis when the credits come from an unaccredited institution. A good academic record is more likely to receive a favorable review than a poor one. Students wanting to transfer SMT credits to another university should contact the university to which they are applying.
