Self-Paced Courses

Working with an instructor, students will design their own schedules. Self-paced courses provide flexibility and the opportunity to study when students have the most time. Most instructors will meet with their students at the beginning of the semester, and then students will send assignments back and forth via traditional mail, drop-in, or email.

Students who are successful in self-paced courses:

  • Are self-starters
  • Work independently
  • Regularly meet deadlines
  • Have strong reading and writing skills
  • Are not looking for a social learning setting
  • Are highly motivated
