Taking an online course in the summer is similar to any summer course in time, effort and quality. The obvious difference is that you will interact with your professor and fellow students online instead of in the classroom.

Generally, you will need:
Some online courses may require proctored exams, either online or in person. Most summer online courses at UCSB have online exams. For proctored exams online, your course instructor will guide you to an online proctoring service. If you are able to come to campus for in-person exams, you will take this proctored exam in a room arranged by your instructor.
If you are not able to come to campus for an exam, it is your responsibility to let your online course instructor know and to locate and arrange for a proctoring service in your area. You will be responsible for the cost of using a proctoring center or online proctoring service (the range is typically $20-30). You must make arrangements for a remote testing location at least 2 weeks prior to your exam date. Acceptable private proctors normally include, but are not limited to, faculty, other university or college testing centers, ministers, military education officers, non-direct superiors and corporate executive officers, and public librarians. Community colleges often offer proctoring services for a minimal fee.
