Course numbers under which your workshop may be scheduled:
- 408 undergraduate credit
- 508 graduate credit (approval from Graduate School needed, see below)
- 808 professional development credit (not applicable to OSU degree)
How to determine the number of credits for your workshop.
Definition of credit hours can be found on the Academic Programs web site at: http://oregonstate.edu/ap/curriculum/terms.html Please contact The Office of Academic Programs for more information.
Generally speaking, one workshop credit requires 30 "class hours."
Your workshop syllabus should outline how the credits are attained, reflecting learning outcomes, activities (group or independent), etc. and the hours associated with each.
Sample workshop credit scenarios:
- If a week-long workshop translates to 35 class hours, assuming one hour for lunch per day, and if all study activity is contained within the announced hours, this would equal 30 class hours and would qualify for 1 credit.
- If the workshop requires readings and essays, and the expected work products are carried out within the scheduled hours, they would contribute to the 1 credit.
- If a workshop that requires 30 hours of contact requires an additional 30 hours or work, which involves studies prior to the workshop and/or requires completing assignments after the workshop, this could translate to 2 credits.
- Content in addition to the activities outlined above should be offered as a part of the workshop equating to an additional 30 hours of "learning/instruction/study."
- Normally 3 credits would translate to 90 hours (30 in class and 60 outside class).
