Academic Credit Course Options
Correspondence courses offer a more traditional approach to distance education. Correspondence courses allow you to work at home on a self-paced schedule; they teach you to be self-disciplined, and they work very well with your busy schedule. Enjoy the benefits of studying on your own and take a correspondence course!
