We are excited that you can earn face to face (old language: residential) credit in more locations!!
If you are in the ThM, STM, MABC, MACE, MACL, MACM, or MAWM, you can now earn face-to-face (old language “residential”) credit nearly anywhere DTS offers courses (see the charts below).
Courses previously completed will count, so some of you are closer to meeting the face to face (residential requirement) now than you were yesterday!
Though meeting the face to face (residential) requirement is now easier for many of you, completing degree requirements might still be a challenge. Review the charts below and the “What do I need to know as I plan toward completing _____ degree?” chart on your degree’s advising page to the left.
Your academic advisor is the person who advises where you intend to complete the majority of your face to face courses.
What does 49% face to face look like?
|Face to Face||Credit Hours for Course||Time Face to Face with Professor|
|49%||3-hours||17 hours, 9 minutes|
|49%||2-hours||11 hours, 26 minutes|
|49%||1-hour||5 hours, 43 minutes|
