Certificate and Non-Degree Student Learning Outcomes Policies, Procedures, and Guidelines
Policies, Procedures, and Guidelines for Writing Student Learning Outcomes for Certificate Programs and Other Non-degree Programs
Non-degree Programs include "stand-alone" minors. A stand-alone minor is a minor that can be earned in a program that does not offer an undergraduate degree with a major in that discipline (for example, a student can earn a minor in Military Science students but cannot complete a bachelor's degree with a major in Military Science). Program level student learning outcomes (SLOs) and curriculum maps for stand-alone minors must be posted on the Center for University Teaching and Learning website.
Students can also earn a minor in a discipline that also offers a major (e.g., History). Because courses used to complete these minors are a subset of courses used to complete a major, the SLOs for the minor must be a subset of the SLOs described on the Academic Learning Compact. Therefore, these minors do not post SLOs for the minor.
