Graduate Credit through the University of Montana

Attendees of all three workshops can sign up for 1 university credit. The fee is $135. Shane Robertson will have the registration forms at the January chapter sharing workshop. Interested people will need to fill out the form, pay the fee, and return to Lori at some point during the workshop. Payment can be made with a credit card or a check. If taking for graduate credit (which everyone with a completed bachelor’s should do), each person will need to write a 5-page paper after completing the three workshops. Papers should address the three workshops and need to be turned in to Shane Robertson by April 14th (do not stress about the papers…it is just a formality for UM).
