Since 1954, Texas State has offered correspondence self-paced courses to students. Currently, the Office of Distance and Extended Learning offers over 30 accredited graduate and undergraduate university courses in a variety of subjects. Both in-state and out-of-state students may take self-paced courses developed and taught by Texas State-approved faculty that are comparable in content and quality to on-campus Texas State courses. Correspondence self-paced study can be liberating. Whether you move to a new location, work irregular hours, have family obligations, or find that you need to put your studies aside for awhile, you can take a correspondence course wherever you are and whenever is convenient.


This freedom is ideal for the student who needs an alternative to the traditional classroom. It’s important, however, to be aware that a correspondence self-paced course not only requires the same amount of work as courses offered on campus, but also presents unique challenges to students who are accustomed to classroom instruction.
