CWUP 5-50-020(12) Office of Continuing Education - Noncredit Offerings

(A) Purpose - As part of the continuing education of the general public, the university offers opportunities for learning which do not carry academic credit. Conferences, workshops, institutes, seminars, symposia, short courses and similar learning activities are offered to individuals for professional development, learning new skills or general information.

(B) Criteria - The subject matter (content) of noncredit offerings must be consistent with the university mission and should reflect the general nature of the institution. They must not duplicate or compete for enrollment with credit bearing courses. With approval of the provost, noncredit courses may be offered out-of-state or out-of-country.

(C) Procedure - Prior to scheduling a noncredit offering, an appropriate academic department or faculty member will be consulted for input on appropriateness of the offering, credentials of instructor (if not CWU faculty), suggestions on evaluation and other recommendations to insure overall quality.
