Change to Self-Paced Course Prices

Prices for all University Extension self-paced courses will increase by $45.00 beginning February 1, 2021. Fees for online exam proctoring using Proctorio are now included in the course cost, and students will no longer be required to test in person at an approved proctoring center. This should provide an overall savings in the total cost of taking a self-paced course, as students will no longer be required to pay proctoring center fees.
