Student Policies

1. WELL Core is a graduation requirement, as much as any course required in the BELL Core. Without completing WELL Core, a degree will not be awarded. There are students, a very few, who have to delay graduation for no reason other than outstanding WELL Core requirements. Students in that situation may not walk at commencement. They may attend WELL Core events in subsequent semesters, without paying tuition. They will also have to reapply for graduation, including paying the related fees.

2. It is the responsibility of students to keep track of their own WELL Core credits, and to report any problems to the BELL Core Office within 30 days. Students can check their progress through their WELL Core account in BruinLink.

3. Credit is only given for approved WELL Core events. The WELL Core schedule can be found on BruinLink. Asynchronous WELL Core events can be found online in the WELL Core course in Blackboard. WELL Core credit cannot be earned by completing similar events in the community, or by alternate means, except for students in the Adult Degree Program.

4. To receive WELL Core credit one must stay for the entire program. 

5. Credit for WELL Core is marked when a student’s Event Pass is scanned or when they scan the QR Code that is posted after the event. Students who fail to have their Event Pass scanned or scan the QR code will not be given credit for the event. Students will receive credit for events through Blackboard after completion of the associate quiz and assessment.

6. WELL Core events cannot be repeated for credit, with the exception of community service.
