Short course Listings
Supplemental courses are on-campus and hybrid (a combination of face-to-face and online) classes that provide additional seats/sections.
These courses are offered at non-traditional times to meet the needs of a non-traditional population.
Supplemental and short courses provide coursework to off-campus audiences as well as traditional degree seeking students during periods when the University does not schedule regular courses (for example, intersessions in August or early January), or at times when regular courses are not frequently offered (for example, weekends and evenings after 3:30 PM).
Note for faculty: Additional detail on supplemental courses is available from "The Guidelines for Supplemental Courses."
Short courses are condensed format classes that offer an alternative schedule with enhanced flexibility. However, students should discuss short course options with an adviser. It is very important that the type of subject and the length of a given course fits the student’s learning style.
Arts and Sciences Outreach offers many face-to-face short courses in the A&S subject areas. List of upcoming short courses are available here:
Short course enrollment processed in the Student Information System. Should a student not be able to enroll in a short course electronically, they should contact their adviser for assistance, or call Christine Nichols (405) 744-8459.
Things to keep in mind:
The time commitment for a short course can be very intense, both in and outside of class.
Drop deadlines for a short course come up quickly. Be sure to know the drop deadlines for your class! Short course drop and add dates are listed on the Registrar’s website: http://registrar.okstate.edu/SIO-Schedule
Intersession classes (courses held between semesters) are a great way to complete credit hours before a semester even starts. Students may wish to take advantage of the opportunity lighten a semester’s course load by completing a class before the term starts. However, it’s important to remember that intersession courses are graded with the complete term. (for example, August intersession classes are graded and transcripted in December, even when all coursework is completed in August).
