Independent Study

Henderson State University does not offer independent study courses; however, with prior approval, Henderson will accept correspondence courses for college credit. Independent study through correspondence courses may provide an alternative to time or course conflicts and also cut down on college time and costs. Henderson's testing center does administer correspondence tests from other colleges and universities.

Restrictions

There are restrictions for earning credit through correspondence courses. Refer to the current Henderson catalog and seek guidance from your academic advisor and the registrar.
