Courses at Other Institutions
Once enrolled, students are expected to complete all of their course work at Dominican College. Students may request approval to take a course for credit at another college only if (a) the course is not offered at Dominican College; (b) it fulfills a degree requirement which, through no fault of the student, cannot be fulfilled in a reasonable time frame at Dominican; or (c) the student's circumstances require that the course be taken at a distance beyond reasonable commuting distance of Dominican College. This last reason would be void if an appropriate online course offering is available at Dominican College and the student meets the eligibility requirement to take it.
Only 100- and 200-level courses may be taken at a two-year college, a maximum of four courses may be taken at any institution off campus, and the last 30 credits of a student's program at Dominican College must be taken on campus. Approval by the advisor, the appropriate discipline coordinator or Division Director, and the Academic Dean is required prior to registration for an off-campus course.
Waivers from the off-campus policy must be granted in writing by the Office of the Academic Dean.
When courses have been completed, students are responsible for having an official transcript sent to the Registrar. Grades for such courses are entered on the transcript but are not computed in the quality point average. Grades below "C" are not accepted for credit.
