Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)


Transfer Credit

If students have received credit for completion of massive open online courses (MOOCs) from other regionally accredited institutions, this credit will transfer at least as elective credit in the appropriate discipline. The institution that originally awarded the credit must provide a course by course report of MOOC credit awarded if this information is not included on the transcript.

Special Examinations Administered by University Departments

If a student, in successfully completing a MOOC, gains knowledge and skills that may qualify the student to earn credit by special departmental examination, the student must comply with the regulations and follow the procedure described in the section on Special Examinations Administered by University Departments  to request an examination. The decision to allow a student to sit for a special examination resides with the advisor, the chairperson of the academic department offering the course, and the dean of the college in which the student is registered.
