Part-Time Student policies

  • Part-time students may enroll for academic enrichment, accelerate their progress in a traditional high school program or finish uncompleted coursework.
  • Our part-time students can choose from more than 200 competency group offerings (a.k.a. courses) that feature flexible course completion timelines supported by anytime, anyplace, anywhere, and any pace competency-based learning.
  • Part-time students can complete the work at their own pace; however, regular work submission and communication is required in all our courses in accordance with the student’s pace chart.
  • The timeline for course completion will be flexible to meet the needs of all full-time students. Typically, students will complete a 1-credit competency group (course, project, etc.) in about 36 weeks or complete a 0.5-credit in 18 weeks. Students can opt to accelerate their pace or request additional time if they find the work too challenging.
