Learning Outside of Courses
ACEN in Action
Learning Communities (LC's) are classes that are clustered or linked during an academic term, often around an interdisciplinary theme and contain a common cohort of students. A variety of approaches are used to build these LC's, intended to restructure the students’ time, credit, and learning experiences to build community among students, between students and their teachers, and among faculty members and disciplines.
Register for an LC
You can register for an LC (LCSE) in HOWDY along with your other courses to add them to your course schedule, but no course credit or credit hours will be awarded because they are non-credit bearing courses. No tuition costs are associated with these courses, but small fees may be applied to pay for resources, field trips, and guest speakers.
