Course Credit Information

Please note, no academic credit will be awarded to students who are not already currently enrolled in a degree-seeking program at the U of MN. If you take a short course and pay the non-student fee, and then later decide you want graduate academic credit, you must:

  1. Take and pass the take-home exam
  2. Register for academic credit and pay tuition, but you do not have to again attend the class
  3. Even if you do not register as a University student, you can still receive a letter grade for the short course, and in most cases, get reimbursed by your company. You will receive a letter from the IBP's Director of Education confirming your attendance and certifying a grade that you would have received if you were a degree-seeking student, providing you opt to complete the take-home final. This letter will serve as proof that you took the course. If at some point in the future you enroll in a graduate program you could get retroactive credit on your transcripts for the short course. Email katzx001@umn.edu if you wish to receive a letter grade after you complete this class.

Additional Information (Directions / Parking / Meals)

  • Directions: Class will be held upstairs in the Mayo Auditorium, located at 425 Delaware St SE, Minneapolis. This is on the East Bank campus, nearest to I-94. However, it can also be easily reached from 35W. Click this link for maps (full map of the Minneapolis Campus and a close-up map for parking options). Click here for driving directions.
  • Parking: There are several parking ramps and parking lots near the course, and you can find them on the map linked above.  This cost of parking is not included in your course fees. The Washington Ave ramp and the East River Road garage are about equidistant from Mayo Auditorium.
  • Materials: Your text and course packet will be provided the first day of class. The course packet is large so one option is to bring each day's lectures so to avoid bringing the large binder each day.  You should bring a pen or pencil, and you may want paper for taking notes (though there is space in the course packet for taking notes). For security purposes, we will provide name tags for you to wear and ask that you clip them on each day. The professors will be required to wear them as well. Also on the first day of class, each student will be assigned a private locker in the anatomy lab area, for your use during the course.
  • Meals: A continental breakfast and buffet lunch will be provided each day.  There are also many restaurants and coffee shops in the area.
  • Housing: For those that are coming from out of town, there are several hotels very near campus. The Graduate Hotel is about one block from class. Click here a listing of local Lodging.
  • Accommodations: If you need any disability or other individual accommodations please contact the IBP Department at ibpdept@umn.edu/ 612-625-5902.
  • More Information: If you can't find your answers here, or on the course website, feel free to contact Jane Barnard in the IBP Department for more information: 612-624-8151 or mayhe001@umn.edu.

U of MN degree seeking students

**Graduate or undergraduate (especially Physiology majors) students at the University of Minnesota that are currently enrolled in a degree-granting academic program as indicated on your U of MN transcript.

Requirements

  • You must already be enrolled in a degree program as a University student to take this course for academic credit. This is a 2 or 3 credit class.
  • Department permission is required for registration. Some students are enrolled in graduate or professional programs, but qualified undergraduates may also join the class, especially physiology majors. We do give preference to undergrad seniors over juniors and to students that register before mid-November.

Course Fees

In addition to your tuition, you will be billed for a course fee of $525. This will be billed to your Spring semester student account. The course fee is primarily for use of human cadavers in the afternoon labs, as well as for equipment use. Tuition is determined by your college program, and our department does not have specific information on that. Click here to get more information from OneStop Student Services.

Registration

Pre-registration for U of M students

  1. Complete the Student Info. Google form to pre-register (link above).  You will receive a permission number needed to register if you fit the required student group.**   Please make sure there are no holds on your records, as that will delay your registration.

  2. Note before registering: There will be one take-home exam. The score on that exam and individual participation in the labs and lectures will be used to determine the final grade. Two graduate credits will normally be awarded for this course. Students registered for three (3) credits* must also complete a final paper, which will contribute to 33% of the total grade. This course is letter grade (A-F).
    *Please Note: Before you commit to a third credit and write a paper, please carefully read the warning on the registration form above. The third credit is accomplished after the short course and during the spring semester. Grades for this 2 or 3 credit class are not officially posted in the U of MN system until the end of the spring semester.

Registration is open until the course is full. Typically, this class fills quickly.
