It's Thanksgiving, and I'm seeing people I know in traditional schools come home for the holidays. Do online students get holiday and summer breaks too?
Every school is different, but you should see holiday breaks in most schools. In general, if you need a holiday break and your school doesn't officially give you one, you can still carve out holiday time. When you're enrolled in an online class you're expected to participate in a certain number of online discussions every week, but you can choose the days and times to participate--so you can "skip class" on a day that doesn't work for you.
As for summer breaks, most offer summer classes--but if you want a summer break, you don't have to take classes during this time.
