Course and instructor availability

There are times when books, materials or instructors are not available, as well as times when courses are under revision. Some courses may also have restricted enrollment. If a course is not available, you may receive a refund for your tuition and fees or select a different course with the same tuition/fees.

Guided independent study instructors are faculty members who are on campus according to an academic-year schedule. Consequently, you should plan for delays in the return of assignments during semester and summer breaks. In addition, instructors may periodically be unavailable during professional development leaves and trips abroad.

If you must complete a course in a short time or during the summer, it is important that you confirm that the instructor will be available to review assignments and grade exams. Call 319-273-2123 or 800-772-1746, and we'll put you in contact with the instructor.
