Lessons & Exams
Make a copy of each assignment you submit; use the correct cover sheets for assignments, exams, and papers; and mail them to correspondence study. Do not send assignments to your instructor.
It is beneficial to have the instructor’s comments on a lesson before proceeding. The instructor must give permission for a student to submit more than one lesson per week. A maximum of three lessons per week can be submitted with instructor permission. Lessons must be submitted in sequence. Questions by students are encouraged and will receive careful attention from instructors. Student papers will be corrected and returned as promptly as possible. Allow approximately two weeks between the time an assignment is received by our office and the time it is placed in the return mail. Contact us regarding any assignment not returned within three weeks from the date it was submitted.
Most correspondence study courses include one or more proctored midterm exam and a final exam. You must present a photo ID (UW student ID, driver’s license, etc.) in order to take an exam. Proctored exams may be taken in the Outreach Credit Programs office (340 Wyoming Hall) if the student is residing in Laramie or nearby. For students in the state of Wyoming, contact the Outreach Regional Center in your area.
Out-of-state students should obtain the services of one of the following to act as an exam proctor: the independent study department of any member institution of the University Continuing Education Association (UCEA) or any member institution of the American Association for Collegiate Independent Study (AACIS); a school superintendent, principal, or counselor; a college dean, department head, head librarian, registrar, or faculty member with the rank of associate professor or higher; or an education office in the armed services. Additional information can be found in your course syllabus. Students are required to request exams in writing two weeks prior to exam dates.
