Print-based Programs

Print-based Programs

This Print-based synchronous learning experience provides a way for students to meet their educational and specific learning goals.  Each course enables students the flexibility to communicate with their instructor by email, phone, or regular mail. A print-based course offered through Part Time Learning consists of lessons, written assignments, exams and the various tools for success. Upon registration, participants will receive a Registration Confirmation Letter, Proctor Information Form, Student Guide and all of the educational materials required to complete the course.

Print-based Distance Learning enables you to work from study material that is mailed to you, in the comfort of your home.

These certificate programs or courses may be taken by print-based correspondence or online.
