Start quarterly with our new self-pace learning class option at Hondros College of Business! Enrollment is open (4) times a year. Progress through your course at your own pace, and finish in as early as four weeks or as long as 10 weeks.

Education designed with you in mind!

With self-pace learning you have the freedom to earn the academic credits you need on your time, complete classes at your own pace and fit education seamlessly into your schedule.

There are no required login times and no assignment deadlines, so you remain in control of your schedule. This gives you the freedom to advance at your own speed once concepts are mastered.We recommend taking 1-2 classes at a time.

How does it work?

Self-Pace Learning (SPL) is an online correspondence learning model and provides a flexible, asynchronous learning format for Hondros College of Business students. The flexibility of this learning option allows the student to complete courses within a time frame that aligns with the student’s schedule and learning preference.

Students may enroll in SPL courses at any time. Start dates are defined and communicated to the student following enrollment processing. Although the standard length of an SPL course is 10 consecutive weeks (the end date is set 10 weeks from the course start date), students can progress through a course in as few as 4 weeks.

Students in SPL courses can submit assignments and complete assessments throughout the duration of the course; however, all course work must be submitted before midnight on the evening of the course end date to receive credit for the completed academic work.

  • Business Law – BLAW150 – 3.0 quarter credits
  • Human Resource Management – HRM150 – 3.0 quarter credits
  • Business Economics – ECON150 – 3.0 quarter credits
