Accounting is a challenging subject to master online, and success rates are lower in the online sections. Online courses require different skills and learning styles from conventional courses. Students in an online class are responsible for scheduling their own "class time." Motivation and self-discipline are essential for success in an online course. The online courses cover the same material as the on campus sections of the same courses, and the expected student requirements are the same whether the course is taken online or on campus.
