Students attending courses by combining distance learning with in-residence classes earn retirement points in two ways:
- Retirement points are gained through the AT/ADT utilized for the 2 week course. NWC does NOT submit individually for those points (see above).
- Students earn pro-rated retirement points for the portion of the course they complete via distance learning.
Students who enroll in the 2 week JMO class receive credit for phases 4 and 5 (40 percent) of the overall class. For that reason, students who take the combined in-residence/distance option for JMO will receive retirement credit equivalent to the 60 percent of the coursework they complete via either CD-ROM or Web-enabled.
Students who enroll in the 2 week TSDM class receive 50 percent of the credit for the overall TSDM course. They must complete the other half of the course via CD-ROM. Students who take the combined in-residence/distance option for TSDM will, therefore, receive retirement credit equivalent to the 50 percent of the coursework that they complete via CD-ROM.
