iStudy Courses

We offer a variety of courses for you to choose from. All of our courses are 3 credit hours and are available online through Blackboard.*

Please note that most of the courses’ syllabi have a suggested Pacing Guide to complete the course in a traditional semester. These are written for the Fall and Spring semesters and Full summer semester students need to make adjustments due to the significantly shorter time period involved.

* All courses are three hours for college credit except CHEM 101, which is 4 credits.
