Gaining Course Approval

Once you have been selected to teach the DC Spring Break Seminar, it is a good idea to get started on the course approval process.  Most often, your department chair or Dean will allow you to use a topics course number if it works with your course title.

If you cannot get the courses/credits you need through existing course numbers, you will need to petition EPC to create new courses.  Visit the EPC site for more information on how to proceed and an online "New Course Application."

Please note: Only faculty can apply for EPC approval.

Proposing New Classes

We actually encourage you to create new classes that use DC's unique educational opportunities. 

Student load & Participation

DC Spring Break Seminar is capped at 25 students.  The Registrar will automatically enroll selected students (wo have paid their deposit) in your course.
