The Correspondence Education Program (CEP) provides a way for students without access to technology to meet their educational and learning goals. Our print-based courses enables you to work from study material that is mailed to you. These courses are offered for non-incarcerated, degree seeking students as well as both degree-seeking and non-degree seeking incarcerated students through our Prison College Program.
The Correspondence Education Program operates on a semester based system which includes two separate term start dates. Semester one will open at the start of the term and ends 16 weeks later. Semester two will open 16 weeks after Semester one and end 8 weeks later. All non incarcerated students are expected to finish by the end of term. Incarcerated students may take up to one year from the start date of the term to complete the course if needed.
Pell Grants for Incarcerated Students
The Correspondence Education Program is aware of the recent repeal of the 1994 ban on Pell grants for incarcerated students. At this time, we are awaiting further guidance from the U.S. Department of Education to provide more information. We do not anticipate guidance and information becoming available for several months. Additionally, this change will likely not go into effect until 2023. We thank you in advance for your patience and hope to have more updates soon!
