Academic Policy Public Review: Course Numbering

Policy Title
Course Numbering
Summary of Proposed Changes

Policy Statement

  • Added language to document that academic credit appears on the transcript and must have academic content.
  • Added language to codify existing practice that academic courses should not be offered for zero credits
  • Added language from current Grading & Transcript policy that students must be registered in order to receive course credit; this policy provides a more logical “home” for this provision.
  • Added a definition for cross-listed courses to codify existing practice.
  • Minor changes regarding course numbering provisions were made to be consistent with graduate policy and move text to the policy appendix.

Reason for the Policy

  • Clarified that the policy is needed for both Minnesota Law and Higher Learning Commission Requirements.
