Education on Demand's credit courses are flexible and ready when you are. It's the perfect solution for students who find they are short a few hours from graduating after the deadline to add classes, are ready to start their education on their schedule, or want a self-paced class. Students have up to 9 months to complete a course, and if needed, can apply for a three month extension.

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.
Restrictions for WTAMU Students:
Upon successful completion of a self-paced course, students will 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. For WTAMU students, self-paced course grades are calculated into their cumulative grade point average.
Tuition for the course(s) must be paid at the time of registration. Once registration is confirmed by the registrar, EoD will send the student instructions to pay online. MasterCard, VISA, Discover and American Express are accepted.
Refunds and Transfers
Fees are not transferable from one course to another. Refunds for withdrawals will only be approved if withdrawal is received within twenty business days following enrollment. Refunds follow the University policy for semesters 10 weeks or longer.
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.
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.
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.
All lessons and exams are to be completed within nine months of enrollment. A one-time, three-month extension may be granted by filing the extension form in the student study guide. The extension fee is $75.00. In calculating completion time, a student needs to be aware that instructors are generally unavailable during holidays, semester breaks and parts of the summer.
EoD must receive completed course work and final exam(s) for WTAMU students at least two weeks before graduation, four weeks for students graduating from other schools. Otherwise, graduation cannot be guaranteed.
A copy of a student's permanent record (transcript) is available from the Office of the Registrar only by written authorization of the student. To receive a transcript, call 806/651-4911, or order a WTAMU transcript online.
Each course will have its own set of instructions, suited to the instructor's specifications. The student will receive a complete set of instructions upon enrollment in the course. Each lesson is to be submitted with a cover sheet indicating name, address, ID number and lesson number. It is important to keep Education on Demand updated on current addresses and phone numbers. DO NOT SUBMIT LESSONS ALL AT ONCE.
Lessons may be brought to the Education on Demand office on Victory Drive, west of the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum; mailed; or emailed to the office at EducationOnDemand@wtamu.edu. All lessons must be recorded by the staff before being sent to the instructor. Students are responsible for postage on lessons sent to Education on Demand. When a lesson is graded it will be returned to the student via mail or email by the instructor. Students are encouraged to keep a copy of each lesson. This will be beneficial in case of loss or damage.
Examinations and Grades
All courses will require one or more supervised examinations. The specific number of tests is indicated in the course guide. Requests for approval to take each exam are included in the study guide and should be mailed or emailed with the last lesson preceding each exam. Exams are proctored and must be taken at the EoD office or an approved university or college testing center.
There is a two-hour limit for each examination. Students who are unable to take exams on the WTAMU campus may arrange to take them at any approved college, university, or testing center. Please check with the Education on Demand office for further information.
