5.6 Distance Education
Westminster currently offers the following course through Distance Education:
See the degree program requirements in section 6 for the courses that may be applied to the masters level degree programs and section 5.4 for the courses that may be applied to the Certificate programs. Students on either a J or F visa may take a maximum of 3 semester credit hours through distance education, in the fall and spring semesters.
Students must take a minimum number of credit hours on Westminster’s campus, as stated in the transfer of credit policy in section 5.2.3.d. Since courses taken through Distance Education are not considered courses taken on Westminster’s campus, the number of course credits taken through Distance Education will reduce accordingly the number of course credits approved for transfer credit into a Westminster degree program.
In order to take a distance education course, a student must be admitted to Westminster and register during the normal registration periods. A fee for course materials, in addition to tuition, is also required. See Financial Information sections 8.3.a and 8.3.c.
Students taking distance education courses must have regular, high-speed internet access. A student email address is provided by Westminster. For distance education courses, Westminster recommends that students use a computer that runs on Microsoft Windows XP or later, or Mac OS X 10.5.7 or later; iPad with iOS 4.3 or later; iPhone 4.0 or later, iPod Touch 4th generation or later running on iOS 4.3 or later.
