Online Courses & Non-Degree Certifications
The Path to Your Degree
Online courses are offered every semester, and they typically run for 7½ or 15 weeks. Fully online, these courses can be taken remotely, without the need for on-campus visits.
We currently offer over 1,000 fully online courses for credit towards numerous degree programs.
We're revising our non-degree, online continuing education programs. As of January 15, 2021, we're no longer accepting new enrollments for continuing education programs offered through our professional training partners.
Nothing is changing for current students. Students actively enrolled in one of our professional training partners' programs should continue completing their program at their chosen program's pace.
We plan to announce new continuing education opportunities in late-Winter/early-Spring of 2021. Please, email us at email@example.com if you have any questions or for more information about these changes.

Unfortunately, we no longer offer correspondence courses. Students currently enrolled in correspondence courses are finishing under their agreed upon timeline, but no new courses will be offered after the start of the Fall 2018 semester.
For more information about the termination of correspondence courses at SHSU, please read the letter from our Provost.
