During the 12-week session, traditional students with junior or senior standing and a minimum 2.0 GPA may take one Center for Adult Studies (CAS) course, per term, on a space available basis and with permission of the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, Center for Adult Studies (CAS). Students who wish to take a CAS courses must go to the Associate Dean’s Office (Hinsdale 3rd Floor) and complete a course add form, (for review of credits, class standing and residency if in campus housing).  The request then goes to the Associate Dean for CAS for review. If the CAS hours place a student over 20 hours for the semester, they must receive permission from the Dean of the College. When registration for CAS students is complete, traditional students will be notified if they have been accepted in the course they requested.

Please note that CAS 8-Week Session 1 (on-ground, at a partnership location, or online) is handled the same as a 12-week course. CAS 8-Week Session 2 is handled the same as a 3-week course. In addition, students must receive special permission from the Director of Residential and Citizenship Education to remain on-campus during a 3-week term when they are taking only a CAS Session 2 class. International students with F-1 visas will have additional restrictions and must be approved by the Director of International Services prior to enrolling in any online course.

During the summer term, traditional students may register online for CAS courses, and take as many as they would like. For more information contact the Center for Adult Studies, Hiram College, 330.569.5161, or www.hiram.edu/cas.
