CEUs and Graduate Credits.
While any MELT Institute can be taken for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and without graduate course credit, some participants may wish to earn graduate credits to assist them in their graduate program pursuit.
MELT Collaboration with Graduate Studies at Appalachian State University
Participants who wish to receive academic credit for graduate courses associated with the MELT institutes (2 credits per institute) may do so for the additional cost of graduate tuition and fees. In addition to attending the institute, you will be required to complete several graded assignments under the supervision of the MELT Director.
The process for receiving academic credit depends on your current status as a student at Appalachian:
(A) If you are a current graduate student enrolled in Spring classes at Appalachian, you will be registered for the course by the MELT program upon receipt of the institute application form and institute fee. You will be billed for tuition and fees separately by the University through your student account.
(B) If you are not enrolled in Spring classes at Appalachian, you will need to seek admission to the School of Graduate Studies by completing the online application at https://www.gradadmissions1.appstate.edu/gradweb/default.asp.
- Students who HAVE completed a graduate course at Appalachian in the last seven years must apply to be readmitted as a graduate student. There is no fee for readmission.
- Students who HAVE NOT completed a graduate course at Appalachian in the last seven years will need to apply for admission. There is a one-time application fee (currently $65), that you will be charged during the online application process.
You will be registered for the course by the MELT program coordinator upon notification of admission from the School of Graduate Studies and receipt of the institute application form and fee.
If you have additional questions or need assistance with the process for academic credit, please contact Dr. Holly Hirst, Mathematics Graduate Program Co-Director, firstname.lastname@example.org.
