As a CAREonline partner, Walla Walla University offers you more options to access excellent education on a schedule that fits your unique academic journey. While in residence at WWU, if a course you need is full or is not offered either on your campus or during the term you need it, you can take an equivalent pre-approved class online from other CAREonline universities through a platform called Acadeum for Students.
To enroll in a CAREonline course, you should discuss your academic goals with your advisor, create an Acadeum account to search for available courses, and then request enrollment.
How it works
Registration and approval
If your advisor approves your taking a CAREonline course at a participating institution, you may create an account on the Acadeum platform and request enrollment. Your application will then be sent to Academic Records for final approval.
Requesting to enroll in a course does not ensure enrollment in that course. Your eligibility to enroll in a CAREonline course is determined and approved by Academic Records. To qualify, you must be a degree-seeking, active student at Walla Walla University. The proposed course may be approved if you meet all the prerequisite requirements of the teaching institution and if the course is either closed or not offered at WWU (the home institution) during the term you need it.
Taking the course
Once Academic Records has approved your registration, pay attention to email communication from the teaching institution for instructions on how to access the course, purchase textbooks, and complete any additional registration requirements. Once you've been registered for the course, communicate with the course instructor to clarify any questions you have about the class or to get tutoring or technology help.
❗️Note the start and end dates for the CAREonline course will likely differ from start and end dates for the WWU term. You are responsible for tracking and meeting these deadlines.
Billing and course credit
You will be charged for the CAREonline course through your WWU account, just like a regular WWU course. Financial aid may apply. Questions about billing and financial aid can be directed to the office of Student Financial Services.
Credit for the course will appear on your transcript as WWU credit—not as transfer credit from the teaching institution. Your final grade in the course will calculate into your WWU GPA.
The Consortium of Adventist Higher Education (CAREonline) was initiated by the Adventist Association of Colleges and Universities to support collaboration between Seventh-day Adventist colleges and universities. The consortium works with the platform Acadeum to share courses between institutions in the consortium.
