The IPAI offers a limited amount of home study options for students who prefer to self-study at their own pace. Once a student has enrolled in a home study, the course book will become viewable in the Student Portal. The IPAI no longer mails hardcopy course books. All home study course books are housed in the Student Portal.


All home study courses require an exam to ensure students comprehend the material. All exams must be completed through our online test proctoring service. Please note there is an additional $50 test proctoring fee. See the Online Protoring Policy for more information.


All 2021 home study exams must be completed by Wednesday, December 15, for a student to receive credit. Students not successfully passing the exam by this date will still owe the full course fee and will not receive credit.




  • The home study course must be paid in full before taking the exam.
  • Course credit and exam results will be posted to student profiles within seven business days after passage of the exam.

  • All exams must be completed and passed by Wednesday, December 15 to receive credit.
