C-6: COURSES WITH REQUIREMENTS THAT EXTEND BEYOND SEMESTER BOUNDARIES

Senate Policy:  34-81, Enrollment

University Faculty Senate Policy 34-81 requires each student to "be registered for the course during the semester in which [its] requirements are completed and the grade or symbol must be assigned at the end of that semester." Among a variety of considerations, this Senate policy recognizes and is intended to comply with United States Department of Education Title IV regulations.

Penn State courses occasionally involve travel or other activities that cannot take place during the semester boundaries in which the course is offered. In line with University Faculty Senate policy and the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost:

Approved: Interim Executive Vice President and Provost Robert N. Pangborn, effective Fall 2012 (1-9-12)
Approved: ACUE (9-6-12)

Senate  34-81, Enrollment
