Important Notice: Temporary Suspension of Enrollments in 9-Month Correspondence Courses

Because of Texas State's transition from TRACS to Canvas as our learning management system for self-paced correspondence courses, enrollments for 9-month correspondence courses in TRACS were suspended on March 11, 2020, as these 9-month courses are being transitioned from TRACS to Canvas.

The 9-month correspondence courses are expected to reopen, with enrollment in Canvas, by early Summer 2020.

For more information on Canvas and the migration from TRACS to Canvas, please visit the Department of Information Technology's Canvas Information webpage.


This is a complete listing of correspondence self-paced courses offered through this office. For more detailed course information, the number of assignments and exams, and any necessary course media, click on the course title.

Note: Courses in production that are currently unavailable are indicated.

The course numbering system has four digits for each course, with the first digit indicating the level of the course, the second digit showing semester-hour value, and the last two digits reflecting the departmental sequence. Thus, English 2330 is a sophomore-level course of three semester hours.

All writing-intensive courses are designated (WI).


For information about acquiring course materials, please see the Course Materials page.

To access the course website, contact the Office of Distance and Extended Learning. A $10-per-credit-hour online fee applies.

Before enrolling in an online correspondence self-paced course, take the Online Learning Readiness Self-Assessment, which will help you determine if online correspondence self-paced courses are a good fit for you.
