About the Courses
Below are all courses at Wake Forest College that have been developed, approved, and delivered in an online or blended format. In alignment with existing practice, approval for online delivery is inclusive of blended delivery.
Faculty wishing to teach online or blended courses must go through the course approval process outlined by the faculty-led Online Education Committee (OLEC). This process aims to provide additional support and development resources to faculty in the college while ensuring that the University meets the external regulatory standards unique to online education. During the process, faculty work with the Office of Online Education and are provided with faculty development resources. They are offered the opportunity to work with instructional designers, as well. All courses are reviewed by OLEC for committee approval and then presented for a vote of the full faculty during a faculty meeting. Additionally, online/blended courses may first need to be approved in the department or program before proceeding to OLEC review. OLEC sends announcements to the College each fall as to when upcoming online course approval processes will be starting.

Questions about Advising
Wake Forest University has a policy on how many online courses a student can take during their undergraduate education. Faculty advising students about taking online courses and students interested in taking online and blended courses should view the Frequently Asked Questions page.
*Note: A course approval process will be implemented for the 2023-24 academic year.
Temporary provisions for online delivery were made in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID, but OLEC is not currently offering processes for long-term, online/blended course approval in the College for regular semesters while the university engages in a new Strategic Framework. OLEC continues to offer a limited approval process for Summer Sessions in 2022 and 2023.
