Before being allowed to register for a specific Semester Online (SON) course, WFU students must confirm that (and in what way) the course will count towards their graduation requirements. Some SON courses have received pre-approval for transfer credit from some Wake Forest Departments. If a course does not appear below, it will be evaluated by Department Chairs as the need arises. As new courses are offered, any pre-approvals will be added to this page. Any course taught by Wake Forest faculty, such as Introduction to Bioethics, by Dr. Carole Browne, will count as Wake Forest credit.
NOTE: Even if a course is listed below as pre-approved, students still have to get a Departmental signature on the SON Permission Form.
