University of Missouri-Columbia

Before You Start
Mizzou’s online courses are categorized into two types: semester-based and self-paced. Most courses are semester-based and available on Canvas. Many self-paced courses are at the undergraduate level, helping on-campus students meet degree requirements, but options are also available for graduate and nondegree-seeking students.

Note: Regardless of the course you choose, you are responsible for ensuring you have completed any prerequisites beforehand.

Semester-based Courses
A semester-based course closely resembles a traditional class experience, with start and end dates aligning with the regular 16-week or 8-week semester. Like other online courses, you may need to take a proctored exam, and you will be expected to complete online quizzes and exams.

One advantage is the added structure and increased interaction with peers. Instead of progressing at your own pace, your instructor will assign weekly tasks, coursework, quizzes, and exams. During this period, you can also interact with your instructor and classmates via a discussion board.

Semester-based courses can be asynchronous, allowing you to log in at any time to participate, or synchronous, requiring you to log in at specific times.

Self-paced Courses
Mizzou offers two types of self-paced courses: a 16-week course that follows the semester calendar and a 19-week course that provides additional time flexibility during the interim.

Self-paced 19-week Courses
The self-paced term starts on the first day of the regular term and lasts for 19 weeks during the fall and spring terms, ending on the Friday before the next term starts. Students can add a self-paced course up to 9 weeks into the term but cannot register for a course with less than 10 weeks remaining.

Self-paced 16-week Courses
These courses have start and end dates that match the regular 16-week session. While they offer an extended enrollment period, the course must still be completed by the session end date. These courses are ideal for those who need to finish within a semester timeframe.

Before Getting Started

All online classes provided by UMSL adhere to the semester-based format, following the on-campus schedule, which includes 8-week/16-week courses during fall and spring semesters, 4-week/8-week/12-week courses in the summer semester, and a 2-week option in the winter.

Course Format

Semester-based courses can be asynchronous, allowing you to log in at your convenience, or synchronous, requiring you to log in at specific times. Students must carefully consider which option suits them best:

– Many students opt for asynchronous courses as they can easily accommodate them into their busy schedules without needing to allocate specific times each week.
– Synchronous courses provide more structure and peer interaction. Instead of progressing at your own pace, your instructor will assign weekly tasks, coursework, quizzes, and exams. During this time, you can engage with your instructor and peers through a discussion board.

For both asynchronous and synchronous courses, you may be required to take proctored exams, as well as online quizzes and exams.
