Self-Paced Online Courses

Self-Paced Online Courses (SPOCs) allow students to set their schedules and deadlines as they move through the online course content at their own pace. Baylor faculty will instruct each course, and courses will be a maximum of five students to one professor.
 
Students must complete the course by the final day of the term for that course. Space is very limited, and registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
 
For more information or to pursue a course, please email accelerate@baylor.edu by July 15.
