Online Learning

Online learning is instructional delivery that does not require you to be physically located in the same site as your instructor. Online classrooms are accessed remotely using computers with Internet access. In addition to text content such as lecture notes and course assignments, they incorporate message boards, chat rooms, and multimedia technologies.

Some courses also require textbooks and other supplementary materials, which can be ordered online. To show what you have learned, you submit assignments and projects to your instructor via our website and, in most courses, sit for a proctored final examination at an approved offline site.


Self-Paced Courses

You can enroll in self-paced courses at any time. You must allocate a minimum of one month per semester unit to complete a course; this time frame allows for instructor-led interaction and feedback between assignments. For courses of 3 and 4 semester units, you must remain in the course for a minimum of three months. You have a maximum of six months from the date of enrollment to complete any self-paced course unless otherwise noted in the course description. Look for "Online, enroll anytime" to find self-paced courses in the online or print catalog.

Fixed-Date Courses

Fixed-date courses feature specific start and finish dates, like a classroom course. In addition to 12-week courses, Extension offers accelerated fixed-date courses that you can complete in 8 weeks.
