Course Completion Guidelines

Your enrollment is for six or nine months, depending on whether you enroll in a six-month or nine-month course, and the date is confirmed by email to your Texas State email address. It is your responsibility to understand the individual course time constraints to complete a course within your personal timeline (i.e., graduation, employer deadline, etc.). A course is completed when the final exam is taken, or for courses without a final exam, when the final assignment is submitted. Failure to complete the course before your enrollment period expires will cause you to forfeit the right to complete the course. If you still need the course credit, you must enroll again, pay the full fee, and begin with the first lesson. If the course has been revised, different textbooks and course materials may be required. If the course is no longer available at the time your enrollment expires, you will not be able to re-enroll. 

Final Exam Grading Time

Texas State students taking the final exam with the Testing Center on campus should schedule testing a minimum of four weeks before they need the grade to be posted to their transcript. Students who have a final exam proctored off campus should allow five weeks for the final grade to be reported to the Texas State registrar.

Graduation Deadlines

To complete a graduation requirement, all self-paced correspondence coursework, including the final exam if applicable, must be completed two full weeks (or 10 business days) before grades are due for faculty during the semester in which the student is attempting to graduate. To locate due dates for grades, please visit the Academic Calendar for students and locate “Final Grades Due at Noon” at the bottom of the calendar.
