You can take one or two courses at a time. When you finish a course, you can start the next one without having to wait. There is no limit to how many courses you complete during each billing session.
There are no letter grades in FlexPath. Instead, all coursework is evaluated through competency-based assessments. Each assessment is broken down into competencies, or criteria, that are all assessed with one of four performance levels: distinguished, proficient, basic or non-performance. If you’re struggling with an assessment, coaching and other resources are available to help you.
When you finish a course, you will automatically be registered for the next course in your program plan. If you wish to register for a course earlier, or if a new course isn’t open after 4–6 hours of finishing the prior course, contact a coach for help with registration.
There are no tests, letter grades or weekly discussion posts in FlexPath. Instead, students are evaluated on competencies. These are defined as the skills, knowledge and abilities required to show mastery in a topic or course.
With FlexPath you set your deadlines within the first 12 days of each course. While these deadlines can be adjusted at any time after you set them, you’ll be required to engage in a course activity at least once every 28 days and finish each course within 12 weeks.
