Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Self-Paced Online Course?
Self-Paced Online Courses are web-based courses built for individualized study. These Self-paced courses have several differences from HPU’s online courses, including more flexibility in learning the material. For example, there are no assignment due dates other than the last date of the course. This allows a student the ability to accelerate through some material and allow for more study time in the areas that need additional reflection. All quizzes, tests and assignments must be completed and submitted by the last day of term in which the course is listed to be eligible for a passing grade.
