What does it mean for a course to be "pre-approved?"
Pre-approved courses are vetted by the EDGE team to ensure they satisfy the criteria governing the work/community experiences milestone. For more information regarding these criteria, visit our page devoted to work and community experiences.
I want to complete a milestone using a course, but I don't see it on the pre-approved course list. What should I do?
If you want to complete a milestone using an experiential learning course that hasn't been approved, there's no need to worry — you can submit it for approval using a form on the EDGE website.
If you're considering enrolling in the course well in advance, consider contacting the EDGE team at email@example.com to have the course assessed. This is a voluntary step, but it can help you proactively address any issues with the course and its eligibility as a milestone.
When you're ready to initiate the approval process, submit the independent studies and special topics enrolment form. A member of the EDGE team will contact your professor to discuss your course's compatibility with EDGE.
I've enrolled in an approved experiential learning course. What else do I need to do to receive a milestone for my experience?
There's more to an EDGE milestone than the work you complete as part of your course. You need to pass the course, receive an evaluation from the course's work or community partner and submit a reflective assignment to earn a milestone for your experience.
If you want to learn more about these requirements, visit our page devoted to the types of EDGE experiences for more information.
Do you have any other questions about pre-approval and the milestone-granting process? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
