UPDATED POLICIES:

Online Course Policy

As of October 2012, students may take up to a maximum of 8 credits (or 2 courses with exceptions noted below) via online courses and have them apply towards the 120 credit minimum required for a BA degree. Students may take two 3- or 4-credit online courses under this policy. Online laboratory courses that are 0 or 1 credit may be taken in conjunction with the two 3- or 4-credit courses and have the credit towards the 8 credit maximum (and not count as one of the two online courses allowed). Partial credit for courses is not allowed. The 2 course maximum applies to both Goucher and non-Goucher courses. Students may either take 2 online courses at Goucher and 0 online courses elsewhere; or 1 online course at Goucher and 1 online course elsewhere; or 0 online courses at Goucher and 2 online courses elsewhere. The policy is effective with courses offered in January 2013 or thereafter. It is not retroactive (i.e. current students who have already taken online courses will not receive credit for them). If the courses are taken at another college they must be from a regionally accredited, non-profit, public or private college or university. Freshman and new transfer students may not take an online course during their first semester at Goucher. An online course is defined by Goucher as any course that meets face-to-face (in person) for less than 60% of the course. Senior Thesis and Independent Work are not considered as online courses and do not count towards the 8 credit online total. All transfer courses must be approved by the Registrar before credit is granted.

*NEW* - Beginning spring 2017 students make take up to a maximum of 12 credits of online courses in total. (Change in policy approved October 2016)
