All credits which are to be applied to an advanced degree must be earned as resident credits or accepted for transfer as described in the Transfer of Credits section. Resident credits are those earned on the Idaho State University campus except in the following instances: (1) With the approval of the department and college offering the degree, graduate credits earned in the Boise Cooperative Graduate Center, Twin Falls Graduate Center, or Idaho Falls Graduate Center are considered resident credits and may be applied toward an advanced degree. (2) Extension courses approved by the Graduate Council and taught solely by approved faculty of ISU may be, with departmental approval, accepted as resident credit, but only when normal instruction does not demand special facilities available only on campus. A maximum of 15 credits earned under these circumstances may be applied toward a degree.
No credit obtained by correspondence may be counted toward a graduate degree at ISU.
