Your couch is your classroom with telecourses, which utilize DVD lessons, textbooks and study guides to guide your learning. Telecourses are even more geared toward independent learners than online courses, as there is no opportunity for interaction with fellow students. There is, however, an instructor assigned to the course to help you if you need it.
Students in telecourses can work at their own pace, as long as they complete the required homework and/or exams by the end of the semester. Some telecourse tests also require proctoring and are taken at the Center for Learning Assessment.
Telecourse Tuition and Registration
Like other credit courses, tuition for telecourses is charged based on residency. There is an additional $35 class fee for telecourses. The registration process is also the same as other credit courses, but students are able to enroll in telecourses up until the middle of the semester. See the academic calendar for specific registration deadlines.
DVDs: Sets of telecourse videos are available for rental in the Distance Learning office, if they are not available online. There is no fee for renting telecourse videos. If you are unable to visit the campus, videos can be shipped to you. Contact the Distance Learning Office for further details.
