The goal of this category is to highlight the professional experiences that students take part in during their academic career. These experiences may be distinctly academic and involve academic credit, or they may be co-curricular in nature and not relate directly to academic credit.
Examples of academic credit activities that satisfy this category include:
Activities or experiences that do not earn academic credit may also be used in this category. Examples include:
Students who participate in activities that earn academic credit and that are mentioned above will receive automatic approval for their Category 6 SET activity. To receive SET approval for a Category 6 activity that does not earn academic credit, students must complete the SET Activity Approval Form and submit it to their faculty sponsor. Any current faculty member may serve as a faculty sponsor. Approval of activities in Category 6 lies at the discretion of the faculty sponsor. Some faculty sponsors may require students to get pre-approvals prior the completion of activities. Students should check with their faculty sponsor to see if pre-approval is required. Once the activity has been completed and approved, faculty sponsors must sign the SET Activity Approval Form and submit it to Dr. Shari Payne, Dean of Engaged Learning. Questions should be directed to Dr. Payne at (412) 397-6235 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
