Planning & Scheduling

Obligations to your Home Department

When teaching a course in the DC Winter Seminars, you are technically teaching a three credit course in the FALL semester (W&M dos not have an official winter/January term).  Your home department will be paid a set amount per each student who enrolls in your course.
