GENERAL INFORMATION

WD&CE Winter/Spring 2018 Noncredit Courses

◘Co-listeD Classes

Classes marked with this symbol ◘ are co-listed. They are offered so that students may register either for credit or continuing education (noncredit) status. Co-listing gives students an option to choose the best path for their educational needs. Each section includes both credit and noncredit students. For students seeking credit classes, please consult the credit course schedule. The expectations for attendance, participation, and effort are the same for all students. Instructors will announce policies concerning class activities. If you have registered as a noncredit student in a co-listed course and you wish to change from noncredit to credit status, you will have one day after the class has begun to do so. After that, you are committed to your path as a noncredit student for the remainder of the course. If the course has a required assessment level to be a credit student, you must first complete the assessment testing and meet the appropriate assessment level before you can change to credit status. Dates for co-listed classes may reflect the actual credit term dates. Please check the day on your calendar for the actual start date of your class.
