Independent Study

Through the regional accreditation agencies, it is possible to earn transferable academic credit for completion of Independent Study courses. Frederick Community College (FCC) has assumed responsibility for the evaluation of EMI’s Independent Study courses. Courses meeting FCC’s academic standards become eligible for lower-division academic credit. To apply for college credit, you must successfully complete a course that is eligible for college credit. You can then submit an application with a fee to receive a personal copy of your college transcript. Two official copies may be directed to other institutions free of charge. For more information, visit http://www.em-study.com.

ISP courses are evaluated and awarded CEUs in accordance with the standards established by the International Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACET). For additional information about IACET, please see their website at http://www.iacet.org/ceus/about-the-ceu/.

Active duty members of some branches of the military may be eligible to apply the completion of ISP courses toward promotion and retention programs. Contact your personnel or education office to determine if this program is applicable to your career progression. Our experience indicates that the member is usually required to apply and pay for college credit before receiving consideration to apply his or her participation in the ISP toward promotion or retention points. Members of the Reserve components who are required to accumulate retirement and retention points are, in most cases, able to obtain credit for their work through the ISP.

***** CEU: 0.1 CEU = 1 Contact Hour.

****** CEU calculation is based on the International Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACET) standards. For additional information about IACET, please see their website at http://www.iacet.org/ceus/about-the-ceu/.

******* College Credits are granted upon submission of application & payment. See "College Credit" for details.

******** Multiple courses must be completed in order to obtain 1 college credit.
