START IN, SUMMER, FALL, OR SPRING Most Hamline master’s, certificate, and licensure programs begin every term. There’s still time to apply to start this summer! See the complete list of programs on page 19 of this catalog, and visit www. hamline.edu/education to find out more, request information, find information session dates, or apply.
Online courses are often smaller so professors know individual students and their work. They can give more one-on-one attention to students—and online students are more likely to actively participate.
You’ll build a sense of community and camaraderie with your classmates through online chats, assignments, readings, and discussions.
What are the benefits of online learning? You can save commute time and associated expenses by learning from the comfort of your home. You can expand your professional skills by learning how to learn online, and you will have more options to participate actively with peers and professors, who will know you better due to increased online contact. Would online learning be a good fit for me? Online learning can be a good fit for most learners, especially those who have initiative and solid selfmanagement skills.
BUILD UPON YOUR CREDITS Hamline’s courses and programs are designed to build upon one another. Hamline certificates often count as electives in Hamline master’s degree programs; and you can earn your administrative principal’s license as part of a doctorate. If you’ve taken a Hamline class and want to see what credit you’ve already earned that could be applied to a program, call 651-523-2600 or email email@example.com
ONLINE Learning FAQs
Is it hard to learn how to use the online classroom? Hamline University uses Blackboard and Moodle which are user-friendly learning platforms. Learning guides and support services are available for people new to online learning. Test drive an online course by visiting: learnonline.hamline.edu When do classes meet? You will need to participate actively and regularly from the day the course begins. Online classes follow the same academic calendar as on-campus courses, but they usually do not have similar class times. That is, online learning is scaffolded to occur at multiple times during the week, and this is typically described in weekly schedules. How and when can I enroll in online courses? The registration process for online courses is identical to the process for on-campus courses.
How much time should I plan to spend outside of class? Plan to spend as much time with your online coursework as you would with an on-campus course. Regular participation is required. As with a face-to-face course, expect to spend 12 hours of time per credit each term for reading, research, writing, and projects outside of online class time. Example: If you are enrolled in a 4-credit course, expect to spend at least 48 hours of extra time for this work during a term. Are online courses self-paced at Hamline? No. While you will not have designated class times as in an on-campus course, learning will be distributed throughout the week according to a schedule designed by the faculty member leading the course. How will I be graded? Grading will be similar to on-campus courses. It will be established by the faculty member leading the course and explained in course materials. Will I ever have to visit the Hamline campus? No, online courses are entirely online. You will be able to access campus services online, including Bush Library. What is the computer requirement? For technology requirements, visit: learnonline.hamline.edu/admission

How to Register Information about how to register for classes online is available in the Online Registration Guide at www.hamline.edu/registration. Alternatively, complete the form in this catalog, clip and mail, or fax to 651-523-2585. Or, register in person at the Student Administrative Services office, room 113E, East Hall, M–F, 9 a.m.–5:30 p.m., Sat. 8 a.m.–12 p.m. Courses fill quickly; please register early.
Credit/Audit Courses listed in this catalog are given in semester credit hours. You may register to audit, but you must still pay full tuition unless otherwise noted. Audit registrations must be submitted via paper form prior to the first class session. Once registered for credit, you may not switch to audit after the first class session. The decision to audit is irreversible.
Verifying Your Registration Use your Hamline ID and PIN to log in to Hamline’s secure website, Piperline, at www.hamline.edu/piperline. NOTE: If you registered via a paper form, a letter containing your Hamline ID and PIN will be mailed to you. You will receive this letter within two weeks of Hamline’s receipt of your registration unless you are also admitted to a degree or licensure program at Hamline. Once in Piperline, view the courses for which you are registered by selecting Student Services, Registration, Student Detail Schedule. Print a copy of your class schedule for access to library services. Any course changes (schedule, location, instructor) will be noted in Piperline; check www.hamline.edu/
Credit Transfer and Use Graduate credit may be used by students enrolled in a Hamline graduate program in partial fulfillment of degree requirements. Such credit is usually transferable to other colleges and universities, but the decision rests solely with the other institution. Grades Students currently enrolled in a Hamline degree or licensure program must opt for letter grades. You must identify your preference at the first class session. Final grades are available through Piperline once the instructor has submitted them; you will not receive a paper copy of your grades in the mail. To check your grades each term, use your Piperline ID and PIN to login to the secure area in Piperline (www.hamline.
edu/piperline), select Student Services, Student Records, Final Grades. Once a final grade is posted, it cannot be changed unless an instructor or clerical error has occurred. If you wish to appeal a grade, you must do so within a month of receiving it. First contact the instructor. If the matter remains unresolved, you may appeal to the program dean and, then, to the Provost. The decision of the Provost is final. Incomplete Grade With an instructor’s approval, a student may take an incomplete (“I”) in a course. An “I” will be given only in circumstances that are beyond the control of the student. An “I” cannot be granted for failing or uncompleted work (a substantial portion of the work must have already been completed). An instructor must update an “I” to a final grade within four months after the end of the registration term. Otherwise, the “I” will convert to an “F” grade. If an “I” has been converted to an “F,” the student may complete the necessary course work, at the instructor’s discretion, within one year in accordance with the grade change policy. The student may not complete course work after that time. Transcripts Information about ordering official transcripts can be found at www. hamline.edu/ transcript. Alternatively, you may order them via piperline or by submitting a signed transcript request form to: Hamline University, Transcripts, MS A1750, 1536 Hewitt Ave., Saint Paul, MN 55104-1284. There is no charge for official transcripts. Check Piperline to make sure all your grades have been posted before requesting a transcript. No transcript or grade will be released unless all financial obligations to Hamline have been met.

Tuition may vary for those enrolled in other programs. Refunds/Drops To drop a class, complete a GCS Drop/ Withdrawal Form (available at: www. hamline.edu/registrar/forms) and fax to 651-523-2585 or drop off in person at the Student Administrative Services office (SAS), room 113E, East Hall, Mon.–Fri., 9 a.m.–5:30 p.m. Alternatively, you may email a drop request containing the information required on the GCS Drop/Withdrawal Form to email@example.com.

After that time students must withdraw from the course and the percent of tuition refunded will be based on the number of days elapsed since the first class session; materials and fees are non-refund-
