Enrollment Requirements

You may enroll in an immediate enrollment, self-paced course for college credit at West Texas A&M University if you have a high school diploma or the equivalent. Enrollment in an Education on Demand course does not constitute admission to the university. Non-WT students at universities in Texas must be compliant with Texas Success Initiative requirements in order to take self-paced courses. All non-WT students need the appropriate prerequisites to take self-paced courses.

Academic Credit

Upon successful completion of a self-paced course, students earn credit from WTAMU, which will appear on their official transcript. Dropped or unfinished courses receive a grade of X, no matter the point in time at which a student drops the course.

Billing and Payment

Three-hour courses are $699 and four-hour courses are $935. Course fees are not transferable from one course to another.

Payment can be made online through Buff Advisor, in person at the Business Office, or by mail. For accepted payment methods, please refer to the Business Office: http://www.wtamu.edu/business-office-payment-methods-and-deadlines.aspx                   

Payment during Fall or Spring semesters

If you register before the initial payment deadline, follow one of the two options below.

  • Enroll in a payment plan for $25.
    • Pay 25% of your total WT bill by the 1st payment deadline.
    • If you do not pay the appropriate percentage, you will pay a $100 late fee.
  • Pay your total WT bill in full by the 1st payment deadline.
    • If you do not pay in full, you will pay a $100 late fee.

If you register after the initial payment deadline but before the third payment deadline, follow one of the three options below.

  • If you are already on a payment plan, your EOD course cost will be added to your total WT bill.
    • Pay the appropriate percentage at the next payment deadline.
    • If you do not pay the appropriate percentage by the next payment deadline, $15 fees will accumulate.
  • Enroll in a payment plan for $25.
    • Pay the appropriate percentage by the next payment deadline. For example, if you enroll between the 2nd and 3rd payment deadline, 75% of the bill will be due on the 3rd payment deadline.
    • If you do not pay the appropriate percentage by the next payment deadline, $15 fees will accumulate.
  • Pay in full within 10 calendar days.
    • A hold will be placed on your account until your bill is paid, although no fees will accumulate.

If you register after the third payment deadline, you must follow the instructions below.

  • Pay in full within 10 calendar days.
    • A hold will be placed on your account until your bill is paid, although no fees will accumulate.
    • If payment is not received within the payment period, you will be dropped for non-payment.

Payment during May & January Intersession, Summer 1, or Summer 2

If you register before the payment deadline:

  • Pay in full by the payment deadline.
  • If you do not pay in full by the payment deadline, you will pay a $100 late fee.

If you register after the payment deadline:

  • Pay in full within 10 calendar days.
  • If payment is not received within the payment period, you will be dropped for non-payment.

Extension Fee

The $75 fee for the three-month extension applies to the semester in which the student registered. This means that when an extension is granted, the Business Office places a hold on the student account until the balance is paid, since the fee applies to a past semester. In order to remove the hold, the student must pay the balance and call or email the Business Office to have the hold removed. For example, if a student starts a self-paced course in September and requests an extension in June, the fee must be paid to the Fall account.

Refunds and Transfers

Fees are not transferable from one course to another. Students dropping a self-paced course within 20 calendar days of the course start date will receive a full refund. Students dropping a self-paced course 21 days or more after the course start date will not receive a refund.

Dropping a self-paced course

Students may drop a self-paced course at any time. Self-paced courses dropped within 20 calendar days of the course start date will be refunded. Self-paced courses dropped 21 calendar days or more after the course start date will not be refunded and will receive an X on a transcript.

Completion Time

Self-paced courses start upon receipt of the enrollment email and must be completed within 9 months of the start date. Students must submit all work to their professor by the end of the course expiration date. A one-time, three-month extension may be granted by filling out the extension form on the EoD website or emailing the EoD Office. The extension fee is $75.00. The extension request must be submitted to the EoD office by the end of the course expiration date.

Click here to request an extension.

In calculating completion time to a posted grade, a student needs to be aware that final exams cannot be taken until the third week of enrollment, and instructors are generally unavailable during holidays, semester breaks and parts of the summer. Instructors are allowed up to 10 days for grading. Three-hour courses cannot be completed in less than three weeks, while four-hour courses cannot be completed in less than four weeks. The professor is responsible for upholding these completion rules.

Books and Materials

Required materials are listed in the syllabus or course guide, which will be furnished after registration is complete. Textbooks may be purchased from the University Bookstore. 

Lesson Grades

Generally, standard letter grades are issued on lessons; however, some instructors may use “satisfactory” or “unsatisfactory.” The course study guide will outline the grading system used for that individual course. Most, but not all, courses are a combination of lessons and exams to calculate a final grade.

When contacting professors, students should allow 48 hours for a response and up to 10 working days for grading of lessons and papers from the date of submission.

Integrity of Work

It is imperative that each student does his/her own work. Evidence of plagiarism by the student will be sufficient reason for the assignment of a failing grade.

Graduation Deadline

EoD must receive completed course work and final exam(s) for non-WTAMU students at least four weeks before graduation. Otherwise, graduation cannot be guaranteed. 

Transcripts

Upon successful completion of a self-paced course, students earn credit from WT, which appears on their official transcript. Standard letter grades are issued for self-paced courses.

If a student drops within 20 calendar days of the course start date, the course will not appear on his or her transcript. If a student drops 21 calendar days or more after the course start date, the course will appear on his or her transcript with an X (GPA neutral). If a student does not complete a self-paced course by the end of the course expiration date, he or she receives an X.

Grades and Xs on the official transcript appear under the semester the student started the course. For example, if a student enrolls in a self-paced course in the Fall and finishes in the Spring, the grade will appear under the Fall semester.

Students can request a verification of enrollment for insurance and housing purposes for the semester they enrolled in the self-paced course. For example, if a student begins a self-paced course in the Fall semester and finishes in the Spring semester, he or she can receive a verification of enrollment for Fall.
