Inmates Taking College Courses, Getting Degrees
The university programs we have listed below are available to inmates in prison and typically referred to as "Independent & Distance Learning". These programs are available and offered by many accredited, well-respected universities.
You or your loved ones pay for the courses directly to the college. Their course curriculum and corresponding books are mailed to you. Your work product and testing are overseen and verified by the prison education staff.
Here are a list of schools that continue to reach out to inmates to provide higher education listed individually in the "Resource" portion of this section.
If you are aware of a college or university that provides courses specifically for inmates, please contact us so that we can update our information.
