What happens when I enroll?

When you enroll you will receive a series of lesson worksheets. Complete these
worksheets in order, using the textbook as a guide. As you complete each lesson, mail to
Purdue University for review and correction by a Purdue University entomologist.

You have one year to finish all the lessons; however, many students complete the course
in less than six months. Your study time will be approximately 80 to 100 hours.

When you have satisfactorily completed all lessons, you finish the course by taking a
proctored examination at a time and place convenient to you. Instructions for engaging a
proctor will be provided to you. Your proctor will administer the exam and return it to
Purdue for grading. Upon passing the exam, you will be awarded a Purdue University
Certificate of Completion.
