What's the difference between credit and noncredit programs?

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 are evaluated according to the instructor's clearly detailed criteria. Noncredit workshops are not tied to the University fee structure.
