Non-Credit Courses
You may enroll in any of the Distance Calculus or Distance Computer Science courses for non-credit.
The non-credit courses are run exactly the same as the for-credit courses, except that at the end of the course, you do not receive any college-level academic units/credits.
The non-credit Distance courses are not offered through an academic institution, but rather through the private company Distance Mathematics Education Associates, Inc.
The non-credit courses are a great way to review course material you may have taken long ago, and forgotten, and do not need the official transcript or academic credits/units for the courses. Usually, a student enrolling in the non-credit courses already has the course on his/her official academic transcript.
Various issues that are special to the non-credit courses include the following:
- No grades; No Pass/Fail
Non-credit courses do not result in a grade. If you need a grade for completion of the course for any reason, you will need to enroll in one of the "for-credit" courses. - Non-credit courses do not satisfy any requirements
If you have specific requirements you need to satisfy for another school, college, or university, the non-credit courses will not suffice. We cannot provide any "official completion verification" to any school, college, or university. - Non-credit --> For-credit Jump
You cannot take a non-credit course to satisfy the prequisite for a for-credit course. The academic prerequisite requirements are such that the official academic transcript must indicate the completion of a prerequisite course. - Employer Reimbursement
Many Distance Calculus students are receiving reimbursement for course expenses from their employer. If you wish to take the non-credit version of the course, you will need to check with your employer to make sure they will still reimburse you for the costs of the course if the completion of the course will not result in a grade nor academic credits. In most cases, employers will only reimburse for course costs with successful completion of the course with a grade of "C" or better, which requires taking the "for-credit" course version.
Non-Credit Course Enrollment
