During the 2013-2014 academic year, Baylor participated in Semester Online, a program that offered undergraduate students an opportunity to take select courses for credit through a consortium of colleges and universities. Semester Online has recently notified Baylor that it will cease its operations after summer 2014. As a result, Baylor has chosen not to participate in Semester Online during summer 2014.
About Semester Online
Semester Online offered online classes from a consortium of prestigious colleges and universities. Each Semester Online course was worth three credit hours and could be used to fulfill requirements in accordance with the University's policy on transfer credit and approved course equivalencies. The university teaching the course provided the course credit, which could then be transferred to Baylor.
The institutions providing courses included Boston College, Brandeis University, Emory University, Northwestern University, University of Notre Dame, the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Trinity College Dublin, The University of Melbourne, Wake Forest University, and Washington University in St. Louis.
Baylor University officials continue to consider the best and most appropriate options for the delivery of course content on-line. We will keep you apprised as our work in this area continues.
