Continuing Education Requirements

Students are required to complete all assigned readings, review all web resources, view assigned videos and participate in weekly discussions with interdisciplinary class members and faculty throughout the semester for each course. Contributions to the discussions are expected to be informed, thoughtful and respectful of other opinions and positions. All students are expected to successfully complete all assignments in order to effectively demonstrate their proficiency in each S.A.G.E. course.  Course faculty will determine a "satisfactory" or "unsatisfactory" grade at the end of each course in the series.

Students are granted seven hours of continuing education credit per course (or 21 hours for the series) from the Office of Geriatrics and Interprofessional Aging Studies of The Ohio State University, which may be presented to professional credentialing organizations for possible continuing education credit.

Tuition: $550 each for Spring, Summer and Fall Semester, or $1,650 for the series (You may pay tuition for each course seperately or the entire series by the tuition due date).
