Social Media University, Global (SMUG) is among the least-structured higher education institutions in the world. You don’t need to take the ACT or SAT test to prove you are likely to succeed. We think everyone can succeed, and we don’t have any limit on admissions. From our perspective, the more students we have, the richer the educational experience will be for everyone. You don’t need letters of reference, either. If you say you want to join, we’ll take your word for it.
And you don’t have to fill out a FAFSA form for student aid, because there’s no tuition to pay.
If you want to enroll in SMUG, you can do it in one or more of the following ways:
- Join the SMUG Facebook Group, which is our “student union.” You won’t necessarily get notification of each new post or course offering through this group, but it does give you a way to connect with your fellow students. You need to have a Facebook account to join in this way, but if you’re at all interested in social media you really should be in Facebook. This option also lets you publicly declare your student status.
- Subscribe to new posts via RSS. For more information on this, check out Social Media 102: Intro to RSS.
- Follow the Chancellor on Twitter. In this option you’ll get more than just the latest SMUG courses, but you’ll also random links and thoughts that aren’t quite worthy of a full SMUG post. Here’s Twitter 101: Intro to Twitter.
These three options are not mutually exclusive. You can do them all. In fact, you probably should. So if you haven’t taken the plunge, do it today, and click the links above to become a SMUG student.
