Who should enroll in Independent Study?
Independent Study courses are designed for self-disciplined, highly motivated individuals who desire maximum flexibility in establishing their own study schedule and pace due to work, family, or other personal obligations. Students can earn an Associate’s degree in Biblical Studies or simply take individual courses to apply toward another degree program at LPC or to transfer to another college.
How are Independent Study courses scheduled?
Students can begin courses at any time and have six months from the date of enrollment to complete each course with the option to apply for a six-month extension ($25 fee).
Can I apply Distance Learning courses to a Bachelors Degree?
The courses come under LPC’s accreditation, can be applied to LPC’s Bachelor’s degree programs, and qualify for transfer to most other colleges and universities.
How much time should I expect to put into a course?
Students should plan to invest 35–40 hours per unit of credit to complete a course, as all credits are semester-hour credits designed to be the equivalent to courses based on a 15-week semester and a class hour of 50 minutes.
