4th Credit Option

Why would I do this?

For Composition 1 and Composition 2

  • You will be exempt from the final exam
  • You will not have to do a Prezi presentation

What extra work do I have to do?

  • A total of 25 hours of volunteer work for the semester.(In Composition 1, you must do 10 hours for the course, so this would be an additional 15 hours.)
  • In Composition 1, the extra assignment is part of the MLA paper
  • In Composition 2, you must give an informal discussion with the class on your volunteer work

Do I have to pay for this?

  • You do not need to pay for the privilege of exempting yourself from the exam and prezitation
  • Any of the Comp 1 and Comp 2 students can do all of the necessary extra work and exempt themselves from the exam and prezi.
  • However, if you want to receive credit toward your electives, you'll need to sign up for the one credit in ENC 2948, which costs the same as a one credit course.

Who can sign up for the one credit ENC 2948?

Have you already done a 4th Credit Option in an ENC course (in either Composition 1 or Composition 2)?

If YES (I have already done a 4th Credit Option in ENC)

  • You cannot do a second one for this course

If NO (I have NOT already done a 4th Credit Option in ENC)

  • You may sign up for the 4th Credit Option

Are there other courses that I can do a 4th Credit Option in?

YES. If an instructor is listed here, that instructor can offer 4th credit options according to the prefix. For instance...

  • Jones can only offer 4th credit option in ENC (Composition)
  • Luke Leonard can offer 4th Credit option in AMH (American History) and HUM (Humanities)
  • see the above link/list for other professors and their 4th credit offerings

Note: You can only do a total of THREE 4th Credit Options and those THREE must have different course prefixes.

  1. Register with an advisor for ENC 2948 BEFORE the deadline of Tuesday, January 31, 2017.
  2. Obtain and fill in a 4th credit option contract from the Center for Service Learning.
  3. Have me sign it.
