Students can enroll in a course at any time, and the six-month or nine-month enrollment period allows students to complete course work at their own pace.

Graduation Deadlines

To complete a graduation requirement, all work in this course, including the final exam, must be completed two full weeks (or 10 business days) before grades are due for faculty during the semester in which the student is attempting to graduate. To locate due dates for grades, please visit the Academic Calendar for students and locate "Final Grades Due at Noon" at the bottom of the calendar.

Testing During COVID-19

During the COVID-19 pandemic, correspondence students have the option of taking at-home alternative exams or assignments in place of their traditional exams. The Main Campus Testing Center and the Round Rock Testing Center are still open for students should they wish to take exams at those locations. Students should contact with any questions.

Non-Texas Residents

Due to new federal regulations, we are limited in the enrollments we are able to accept from students residing outside of the State of Texas. Please contact the Office of Distance and Extended Learning before submitting your enrollment application to confirm that we are able to enroll you in our program.
