Weekend Courses
(Meet 9:00 am ; 5:00 pm, unless otherwise noted)

Courses without Scheduled Meetings
Waivers
Students who believe they have already mastered the material and skills offered by any course they would normally be required to take will need to see both their advisor and the instructor of the course to explore the possibility of a waiver. You must have covered at least 75 percent of the Antioch course material to be considered for a waiver.

Waivers do not carry transfer of credit. Students who have courses waived still need to take an average of 30 semester credit hours (24 for students doing uncredited internships) in an academic year, in addition to meeting the minimum distribution requirements in each competency area. Please see the Student Handbook on the AUNE website for details.

Waivers do not relieve you of the obligation of dropping a course for which you have registered. You must meet the official drop deadline (please see the drop deadlines listed on the academic calendar and/or the online Student Handbook posted on the AUNE website) to have the waived course dropped from your schedule.

Continuing Education Students
Continuing Education seats may be available to post-masters degree people in the community or at field sites. Antioch students who have completed all their work for their master’s degree before the course begins may also register.
