Each semester, Course Verification is used to ensure all details of a course are accurate before being shared with students. Global Campus uses the system to keep a running log of the conversation between faculty, Global Campus, and other WSU partners. Once confirmed, all information, listed in the steps below, will be associated with the course to be carried over into future semesters.
