Admission to Walsh University
Students can download a non-degree student application for admission to Walsh. It can be completed and sent to the Campbell Center along with course registration. No application fee is required.
Students wishing to receive credits for course(s) are required to pay the
full Campbell Center tuition, plus the following:
1 credit: $300
2 credits: $350
3 credits: $400
Evaluation and GradingStudents seeking academic credit will be evaluated at the end of the course.
Grades are assigned by the course instructor and in his/her absence the Campbell Center Program Director or Program Consultant. Grades are based on the learning objectives set forth by the instructor. Letter grades will be assessed based on the successful completion of the following criteria:
- Attendance of all course lectures and/or laboratory exercises
- Course engagement and contribution
- Completion of a course portfolio
The course portfolio will include all course material (syllabus, bibliography of course readings, hand-outs, etc.) and a collection of student work that will assist the instructor in assessing the student’s learning process and performance. The student work can be the product of laboratory exercises, the manipulation of materials, course writing samples, documentary photographs, an exam, or a research paper to be completed after course instruction. Instructors should clearly communicate portfolio instructions and student work expectations prior to the start of the course. Course portfolios will also serve as a permanent record of the content and work completed in Campbell Center courses. This record may be necessary for students who wish to transfer Walsh University credits to another academic institution.
