Teach a Course
If you know something unique, have a special interest, or have some special skill or talent and would like to share it with your peers in an educational setting, then teach a StuCo course!
- StuCo courses are taught by currently-enrolled CMU students
- StuCo teachers are required to give final grades for undergraduate students of "P" = "Pass" or "N" = "No Credit"
- StuCo teachers are required to give final grades for graduate students of "S" = "Satisfactory" or "N" = "No Credit"
- Students who receive a Pass/Satisfactory final grade receive three (3) Free Elective Units
- StuCo teachers receive three (3) Free Elective Units for teaching each StuCo course via the StuCo Practicum course number (98-000)
- CMU students may use no more than nine (9) Free Elective Units towards degree requirements, per University policy
If you would like to propose your own StuCo course, or have any questions related to the StuCo application process, please contact Kristin Lavery in Wean Hall 4614 or call 412-268-6819.
