New DMS Nanocourse Policy

Division of Medical Sciences (DMS) Nanocourse Policy


Course Credit:

Although students are encouraged to take as many nanocourses as they please, official credit will be granted for up to six nanocourses only. Students must participate in all sessions of a nanocourse and complete all the assignments in order to qualify for credit.  Completion of three nanocourses will be equivalent to a quarter course credit.

Course Registration:

Nanocourse enrollment is required only for students who wish to accrue credit.  Students are required to enroll on the web site in advance of the course (as specified per course on the web site). Students may drop a course using the web site, up to one week prior to the first session of the course. Failure to attend or complete the course will result in an incomplete grade for students who do not drop the course one week before the course date.  An incomplete grade will also be given to students who do not attend both days of a nanocourse for which they have enrolled if they do not drop the course as specified above.
