Independent students are strongly encouraged to plan their schedule in order to complete their coursework on time; however, extensions are available depending on the circumstances. Students should consult with their counselor or school official to determine how extensions could impact their academic plan, including anticipated graduation date. Access to incomplete courses will not be available beyond the end date without an extension.

Study Skills and Resource Library

The Study Skills and Resource Library was designed by the Mizzou Academy curriculum team and includes a rich library of modules on key topics for student success and wellbeing. This is a living library, meaning we continue to add resources to it as the need or request arises from students or partner schools.
