Who Pays: Students enrolled in any "one-time" course, such as a Topics course or Workshop, if there are any related expenses for this course such as supplies, mailing costs, travel expenses, and the like.
Amount: Varies with each Topics course or Workshop, but in any event, would cover 100% of any related costs of the offering.
Justification: The College periodically offers courses, under a studies designation. This designation is designed to allow the College to offer a course, where there appears to be demand or need within a program, without the course being listed in the Catalog. This allows for two semesters to test the course, and if the course is successful, it can then be submitted to the Curriculum Committee as a regular on-going WWCC Course. In a similar vein, the College also has opportunities on occasion, to offer a "one-time" Workshop for college credit.
The Vice President for Student Learning will approve the fee amounts, and will then subsequently request Board approval, using the Consent Agenda process.
Fund: Designated, 13 Fund (Special Course Fees)
Board of Trustees Approval Dates: 4/25/96; 1/27/00
