The Odyssey Program

Courses Currently Approved for Odyssey Credit

Hendrix offers several course experiences for pre-approved Odyssey credit (assuming student completion of all requirements). These classes delve deeper into the Odyssey category, providing an intense and rewarding experiential learning opportunity. Some courses are not approved for Odyssey credit simply as they stand, but such credit is available only if the student opts to do an extra module of work.

Students will automatically be entered in the Odyssey database when they enroll in a course that has been pre-approved for Odyssey credit. Credit is awarded upon the completion of the course with a grade of a “C” or better (or “CR” for courses taken for credit only). If you are requesting credit for a module, please discuss expectations and requirements with the course instructor and submit a Statement of Intent Form.
