Purpose of this form is to change the credit load. Some non-degree students attending the field school will be funded by NSF grant money. The NSF requires that those students face no financial obstacles to attendance, and NSF money cannot be used to pay tuition or fees. Therefore, these students must be enrolled for 0 credits. Other students will normally register for 4 credits. Department approval will be required to register, so we can make sure credit loads are appropriate.
April 29: Revised syllabus with additional administrative information.
