We are excited to be making this first CIRTL summer course available to all of our new 25 institutions, however, that does mean that access to the course will be limited.
We will open up registration on Monday April 23 9:00am CT and will accept applications on a first-come first-served basis with students from STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) given priority. In order to accommodate as many institutions as possible, we will only accept one applicant from each institution. Subsequent applicants will be placed on a waiting list. We will accept people from the waiting list, as space allows, starting Monday May 21.
We strive to be inclusive of anyone interested in participating in our activities, programs, and courses. If you have specific accessibility needs, please let us know in advance so that we may make the necessary accommodations.
Students may participate with or without credit, as they prefer. The course work is equivalent to a 2-credit course. Students are expected to complete all work regardless of the number of credits they receive for the course. Graduate students are encouraged to work with their local CIRTL Network campus leaders or advisors to receive independent study credit. Credits offered by the host campuses will vary. Students taking the course for credit will be required to submit a grade report form to the instructor early in the semester.
