Default Michigan prison and college by mail

Does anyone now which college is best if you are in a michigan prison? My brother is looking to start on a degree while in, and he has no acess to the internet. Or a typewriter. Do you know if there is a college that is ok with no computer or typewritten papers?

Indiana University is fine with this. but you have to make sure the Michigan authorities will cooperate in administering the tests, generally a midterm and final for each course. it is the AA degree and the BA degree in General Studies available through Distance Learning.

God's timimg does not always coinside with our immediate plans, sometimes his timimg requires that we wait and put our trust in him, because he will always have our best interest in mind

Welcome to PTO. I know of a few guys that went through Ohio University distance Learning as well. They do need to have one of the teachers act as the proctor for them. Good luck!
I love my HUSBAND!!

Ohio University would be my suggestion as well. It's not in-expensive, but they are incredibly helpful.
