Transient Credit Policy: Students who use transient credit (that is, transfer credit from another college or university) to satisfy course requirements in Westminster’s mathematics major or mathematics minor may NOT get transient credit for more than four semester hours of mathematics courses that are 200 level or above with the exception of courses equivalent to Westminster’s MTH 250  (Calculus III), MTH 253  (Differential Equations) or MTH 241  (Discrete Mathematics). These restrictions hold for any external course whether it is a traditional classroom style or online.

Internship/Field Experience: A student may wish to arrange an off-campus experience with a business, industry, service agency, high school, governmental office, or another appropriate organization. The course credit for an internship depends on the length and the actual learning situation. Students work with the academic adviser to determine the credit. Many of the supervising organizations pay a salary, although this is not necessary. We believe that this is a valuable learning experience for an individual during the junior or senior year.
