Consult your U of A academic adviser if you want to apply a self-paced course toward a U of A degree.
Semester Credit Hours
SPOC courses normally do not count toward your credit hours of enrollment for the semester. If you are required to be enrolled in a specific number of credit hours for the semester and want SPOC courses to count toward that requirement, you must select a start date labeled for financial aid/scholarship enrollment.
If you wish to pay for self-paced courses by using financial aid, loans or scholarships, you must enroll in a session with a specific start date, following financial aid/scholarship guidelines.
$ = Enrollment under financial aid / scholarship guidelines only.
Elementary and Intermediate Spanish self-paced courses are now "semi-structured" with specific deadlines during the enrollment period, and no enrollment extensions are available.
