Co-Curricular Requirement

Make a plan each semester to complete your co-curricular requirement. Treat co-curricular appointments just like classes when scheduling work or considering your academic load.

TRADITIONAL UNDERGRADUATES  Traditional undergraduate students are required to earn 30 co-curricular credits a semester, A minimum of 15 credits must come from Tuesday and Thursday programs held during the co-curricular period (11:30 a.m. to 12:20 p.m.). A maximum of 10 credits may be earned through experiential learning in the Changes program.

NON-TRADITIONAL UNDERGRADUATES  Undergraduate students 25 years of age and older or who are parents with a child in their care are identified as non-traditional. Non-traditional undergraduates are required to accrue 10 credits a semester, drawn from any of the available opportunities. They also have the option of viewing programs online and submitting a report in lieu of physical attendance. 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 academic credits, pursuing a second bachelor’s degree or has 120 or more earned academic credits by the beginning of the semester, the student is welcome but not required to attend programs. Earned academic credits can be viewed using the University Academic Record link on your iVue page. Do not use the CAPP program to figure earned academic credits.
