Telecourses are distance education options designed especially for students who want to earn a degree who may have time constraints. Students can enroll through regular campus registration and can include Telecourses as part of a normal on-campus enrollment. Telecourses are offered for the same academic credit and are shown on your transcripts as regular WSU classes. Telecourses in general consist of a few on-campus meetings with the instructor and viewing lessons available in a variety of options. For more information about telecourses, please contact Mary Morriss, Telecourse Coordinator at patricia.morriss@wichita.edu or 316-978-7766.
