Independent Study Program: The program started in 1973 and is modeled after traditional correspondence learning. The independent study paper/email based program is specifically designed to make learning as flexible as possible. Using texts, study guides, and other course materials, you learn by completing specific assignments. Assignments are submitted to the instructors by email, surface mail, or fax. You may enroll in a course at any time and take up to six-months to complete the course.
Online Program: For those who prefer interaction with other students, the Online Degree Program enables completion of courses in a virtual classroom environment. You can log on to your course at any time and engage in discussions with the faculty member and your classmates. With six, eight-week terms each year, it's easier than ever to earn your degree.
