Correspondence – Online Self Study
Registration for the 2022-2023 academic year is now CLOSED
Please consider registering for 2023-2024 which begins in September.
Is Correspondence Right for You?
St. Louis Correspondence courses are designed to be self-directed student learning experiences with minimal student / instructor interaction.
Correspondence students are expected to submit TWO LESSONS/WEEK to complete their course (This means a credit can be earned in as little as 10 weeks). All students are encouraged to complete courses within 6 months of enrollment.
To successfully earn the Correspondence course credit, students are required to successfully complete all lessons and evaluation pieces in order and achieve at least 50% on the final exam or assignment.
All available courses are hosted in the D2L/Brightspace platform, and each course has a variety of lessons and assignments as well as its required exams or culminating tasks. Some courses also have the expectation that students will participate in the course’s online discussion board. The expectations of the course and information about its assigned Marker will be posted in the D2L shell for students.
***Please be aware that students may only be enrolled in a maximum of TWO active Correspondence courses at a given time.
Note: If you are applying to college or university for September 2023, you must complete all course requirements by June 23, 2023.
