Non-Contact Course Credit

5350.1 General Policy

Non-Contact Course Credit is defined as credit hours earned for activities such as laboratory work, studio work, internships, practica, experiential learning activities, independent studies, independent readings, theses, dissertations, and other academic work. Any WSU graduate student engaged in non-contact academic work will receive credit for that work only if it is performed under the supervision of and with approval from a WSU faculty member, with a formal written agreement noting the nature of the academic work and filed with the appropriate program or department. Students engaged in non-contact academic work should typically spend no less than 37.5 hours per semester on that work for each credit hour earned.
