Through the Correspondence Course Division, Sam Houston State University provides the opportunity for qualified individuals to obtain college credit through correspodence course study.
Correspondence courses offer a challenging and rewarding opportunity to earn credit for college courses without attending an organized class. Students may study at their own rate and at the time and place of their choosing. This service has been proven highly beneficial for those who desire to continue their college work, to teachers who wish to take courses leading to additional certification or who are in need of additional study in the disciplines they teach, and to citizens who wish to broaden their learning.
Unless otherwise specified, each correspondence course carries three semester hours of college credit and includes an amount of work similar to that required for a course taken in residence.
Correspondence courses are not offered at the graduate level, nor can any correspondence course taken at any level or at any institution count toward a graduate degree at Sam Houston State University.
