# Flexible Enrollment

One of the keys to success in the Distance Calculus program is**Flexible Enrollment**.

In a traditional collegiate course enrollment, you would need to wait for the start
of an academic term for your course to begin. As these traditional courses are
**synchronous** in nature, this "everybody starts together" is required - you would
not like to start attending the lectures at the middle of the course, and the
professor would not like to have to repeat previous lectures - just for you.

As Distance Calculus is centered upon the ** asynchronous learning model**,
you may

**, without having to wait for the start of the next academic term.**

__start your course at any time__
Just as you may start your course at any time, you may also __ finish your
course__ with the same flexibility: you may complete your course as
quickly as your skills allow, or go more slowly, without the "rush" often
found in math courses taught in the traditional lecture format.

This flexibility of ** start dates** and

**does require a higher level of self-discipline on the part of the student in order to succeed. For some students, a fixed schedule with clearly defined start and end dates is a more successful learning model. For older, non-traditional students, a fixed schedule is usually not possible, due to work/life/parent responsibilities that have a distinct habit of requiring full attention at unexpected times.**

__end dates__The flexible course schedule allows students to start their course when they wish, and take a break from the course when needed to attend to work/life/parent tasks. Many Distance Calculus students will work on their course for a few weeks, then take a break for a few weeks their job heats up, their kids get sick, or their life just gets too busy. When all other distractions return to normal levels, then these students are able to return to the course work - uninterupted and unpenalized in the progress of the course - with their full attention.
