Courses

If you want to see what courses will be offered in Spring semester 2011, please go to the Office of Registrar and check  under Schedule of Classes: Spring 2011.  If you want to read the course descriptions of courses and check on prerequisites, then check under Catalogs online.  Please note that not everything listed in the General Catalog is offered each semester; that’s why you must check the Schedule of Classes for Spring 2011.  

Each course option will indicate when and how often each course meets.  Each and every lecture must be attended, so you should not have any conflicts of scheduling.  Part of the grade (mark or assessment) is determined by your attendance and class participation.  You will learn more about this process during Orientation for International Students.   

For exchange students (J-1 visa holders), choosing academic courses at VU must be coordinated between Valpo and your home institution.  Your home institution will make the final determination of which courses will count towards your degree.  Please first confirm with your home institution which kind of courses you need to take, and complete the plan of study form before your arrival.
