Students can download the application materials for an off-campus interim course online. We recommend that you become familiar with the materials, so you know what students will be handing in to you or if you would like to add anything to what they need to complete for you. If you prefer, you can download any of the forms and make changes appropriate to your course and make them available in paper form to students.
The following information should be helpful to you as you plan for your interim. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
