Guidelines and process for petitioning for certificate credit
Petitioning a course for XR Certificate credit
Courses that you take in which you perform a significant amount of XR-related work may be eligible for credit towards the certificate requirements.
You can petition for XR Certificate credit for:
- Courses you have already taken
- Courses you are currently enrolled in
- Courses you are planning to take in an upcoming term
Criteria for courses to qualify for XR Certificate credit
- XR-related work performed in the course must count towards at least 20% of the overall course grade
- You must complete the course successfully with a passing letter grade
- Your petition must include the following:
- A course syllabus and/or other materials showing the portion of the course grade accounted for by XR-related work
- Evidence of the work that you completed/will complete (Reports/demonstrations/etc)
- A narrative outlining the work that you completed/will complete and its relationship to the class requirements.
- Contact information for the course instructor so the XR Committee may ask specific questions
Petitioning for a course you haven’t completed yet
- If you submit a petition for a course you are currently enrolled in, or are planning to enroll in during a future term, the XR Committee will still review the course for pre-approval.
- The course will only count for XR Certificate approval if the following conditions are met:
- You pass the course successfully
- The components of the course that fulfill the XR requirements are not altered or changed from your original proposal
- If conditions are not met, the course will not count for XR requirements. This is includes coursework that you take in your final term.
- Petitions will be processed within one month after submission IF they are submitted between Sept. 1 and April 1.
- In some cases, additional clarification may be required, delaying final approval
- Students are responsible to take these time constraints into account when submitting requests, particularly with regards to completing requirements in advance of graduation
