I received this today from TESC and thought the membership may be interested. ------------------------------ Student Advisory on Earning Credit for FEMA Independent Study Courses Thomas Edison State College Kelsey Clock Effective immediately, the acceptance of FEMA Independent Study courses for credit at Thomas Edison State College is indefinitely suspended pending further review of those courses. Students with documented approval to use FEMA Independent Study courses as part of their degree program prior to March 5, 2014 will have those approvals honored but must submit their official FEMA transcript with all approved courses listed as complete to Thomas Edison State College by June 30, 2014. Students with previously evaluated transfer credit from FEMA Independent Study courses accepted and applied to their academic record at Thomas Edison State College are not affected by this change. Those evaluated credits remain part of their permanent record and may, where appropriate, be used in fulfillment of degree requirements. Students with questions concerning how this policy change may impact their program of study should schedule an appointment with an academic advisor via the myEdison® student portal or contact the Office of Advisement at [email protected]. Please include "ATTN: Dr. Keel-FEMA" in the subject line.
