There has been a slight change to our college credit program requirements.  This will go into effect with the start of the Fall Semester on Monday, August 27, 2018.  The current or previous version of the Independent Study course will only be accepted for conversion into credit.  For example, FEM 131 requires completion of IS-230.d OR IS-230.c.  Previous completions of IS-230, IS-230.a, IS-230.b can no longer be used towards this credit.  Some exceptions may apply.  Please see the FAQ’s on the college credit website for more information.

 Students can view the updated college credit list reflecting the accepted course versions on Monday, August 27, 2018 by logging into their account on then clicking on the “Course Info” tab.
