Non-Traditional Studies

Under the direction of the Enrollment Development Committee, students may receive credit (with a grade of Q) for certain kinds of study outside the course structure. In each major, the faculty may approve a maximum of two courses for previous vocational experience.

Students also may earn credit for allied or co-curricular activities. Petitions to the Committee must be submitted prior to or very early into a designated experience; that activity must be accompanied by supplementary reading and a writing project. The whole project must have the approval of the supervising instructor, the department of the College if appropriate, and the Committee. In some instances, credit also may be granted for performance in the arts. A fee is charged. Grades of Q are recorded.
