Due to high summer enrollment volumes NetMath course registrations will be paused on 6/3/2024 for the following Academic Year NetMath courses: MATH 241, MATH 416, MATH 417, MATH 444, and MATH 447. This registration hold is currently only for the month of June. Our expectation is that we will “reopen” these courses around 7/1/2024. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.


Overview

College students have 16 weeks from the date of registration to complete a NetMath course. Upon registration, students will receive communication from the NetMath office regarding their official course start and end date. These courses are self-paced and students may complete their coursework prior to the assigned end date. Some courses allow a paid course extension.

For detailed information on a particular course, click the course number in the College Courses table. Each course page contains the syllabus, information on extensions, tuition cost, number of credit hours, and necessary course materials.

Future Registration

Your NetMath course will begin immediately when your registration application is processed. Once you submit a registration application and confirm your intent to enroll, there is no mechanism to pause your course or start at a later date.


Note the following before registering:

Please Note: Students currently registered in a University of Illinois Graduate Degree program will be restricted from registering in self-paced, 16-week Academic Year-term NetMath courses. Matriculated UIUC Grad students may register in 8-week and 12-week Summer Session 2 NetMath courses. 

  • You may enroll in one course at a time.
  • Depending on how much information is required, your registration will take 5-10 business days to be processed.
  • Once you confirm your intent to enroll you will be registered in that course within the next few days barring any account holds or advising holds.
