How do I decide if a workshop should be offered for credit or noncredit?
Consider your audience and the workshop content and purpose. Would credit hours be of value to likely participants? Noncredit workshops offer more flexibility in scheduling and pricing but must be marketed to a well-defined audience.
Credit workshops, like credit courses, must meet University and Ohio Board of Regents standards for contact hours and out-of-class time, and must adhere to the cost per credit hour set by the University Board of Trustees. Participants in credit workshops must be evaluated according to criteria clearly detailed in the workshop proposal. Noncredit workshops offer more flexibility. There are no set time constraints and the program fee is not tied to the University fee structure.
