Make a plan each semester to complete your co-curricular requirement. Co-curricular appointments should be treated just like classes when planning work schedules and overall academic load.

TRADITIONAL UNDERGRADUATES  Undergraduates under the age of 25 years who do not have a child in their care are identified as traditional. All traditional undergraduates are required to attend 26 co-curricular programs a semester, meeting one or two minimums (below) as part of the total requirement.

Thursday Minimum  Traditional undergraduates must attend a minimum of 9 programs offered on Thursdays during the 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. period.

Living Learning Minimum  Traditional undergraduates living in a residence hall (Lamson, Meier, or University Towers) must attend a minimum of 5 living learning programs offered in the residence hall system.

The remaining credits can be invested in ways that best support a student’s life and career goals. A maximum of 10 credits may be earned through the service learning form.

NON-TRADITIONAL UNDERGRADUATES  Undergraduates 25 years and older or who are parents with a child in their care are identified as non-traditional. Non-traditional undergraduates are required to accrue 9 credits a semester, drawn from any of the available programs. Parents under the age of 25 must present a copy of their child's birth certificate to the Student Life office in order to receive non-traditional status.

EXEMPTED UNDERGRADUATES  Marital status or work conflicts do not exempt students from attendance. However, if an undergraduate student is registered for 7 or fewer credits, has already earned a bachelor's degree, or has 120 earned academic credit hours or more by the beginning of the semester, the student is welcome but not required to attend programs. Earned credit hours can be viewed using the University Academic Record link on the iVue page. Do not use any other means to calculate earned credit hours.
