Independent Study through Correspondence
Correspondence courses offer students a flexible, convenient alternative to earn college credit for those who cannot attend regular classes. In addition, they provide an opportunity for all UNM students located anywhere to add to their credit hours in their degree programs. Lower and upper division courses spanning a wide range of disciplines are available for registration. Many degrees allow, with some restrictions, up to 30 credit hours of correspondence courses to be applied toward graduation.
The Correspondence Department provides directed study opportunities for students whose responsibilities prohibit their being enrolled for regular classes on campus.
Students who are considering a correspondence course option should realize that self-discipline is required. Students must set aside time for study. Correspondence courses seek to develop individual study techniques that will continue to be a source of enrichment for the student.
Many of the courses have been developed by our faculty, and some have been prepared by the International Correspondence Institute. All courses are reviewed and graded by our faculty.
The material for each course varies. Course material consists of one or more of the following items: lessons, study guide, textbook, student packet, progress evaluations, or audio cassettes.
The final exam is sent separately to an approved proctor. It is a major portion of the grade in most courses.
Correspondence courses involve individual, independent instruction of a student by an instructor on a one-to-one basis. Typically, this will entail study at home, as well as the exchange of materials and evaluations through a mail/courier service. Interaction and feedback between correspondence course faculty and students take the forms of written assignments, testing, evaluations, guidance, and assistance via such media as D2L, print/written word, telephone, fax, e-mail, and other electronic technologies. Computer access and/or a proctored exam will be required as determined by your correspondence instructor. A student must be self-motivated and self-disciplined to successfully complete a correspondence course.
Correspondence courses follow the university Academic Calendar and Tuition and Fees Schedule. University admissions procedures must be followed before registering for these and other distance learning courses. An Admissions application may be completed online and, upon admittance to the university, students may register for courses online via Pipeline.
The links below are to the materials for your course. (If you choose to use this electronic version you do not need to purchase the printed version of the packet but you still need to purchase your textbooks*.) You may choose to print this material from home or a University computer lab or simply save the file on your computer desktop and access it as needed (no printing).
BYU Independent Study
Our Paper courses (by mail) are our traditional, self-paced correspondence courses; students may receive and submit all material through the mail. Take this course anywhere; students who are traveling, in a remote location, or are institutionally bound are not limited by a need for Internet and computer access.
A course packet is mailed to you and contains everything needed to complete the course by mail including; the syllabus, course readings, non-graded self-check assignments, and computer-graded assignments with bubble sheets. Students can submit computer-graded (Speedback) assignments online or by mailing the completed bubble sheet. Students have the option of submitting instructor-graded assignments by e-mail, fax, or mail. Exams are administered by a certified proctor or testing center. Student support is available by phone, e-mail, and live chat. Students can also request free tutoring support.
This is best for students who:
- Have no internet access
- Prefer hard-copy assignments
- Are not in a rush to complete the course
- Do NOT have a counselor or parent that wants to closely follow their progress
