Homework & Exams
Working professionals enrolled in graduate courses for credit are part of a class cohort that includes full-time campus students and are expected to complete homework assignments, projects, case studies and other course requirements on time. The Stanford Center for Professional Development serves as a liaison between the student and the instructor making it possible for homework to be submitted, time-stamped, and forwarded to the instructor. Corrected homework is returned via email attachment.
Within the first two weeks of classes, you will be required to identify an Exam Monitor who could be your manager, human resources or education manager. Any exam that you are required to take will be sent to the Exam Monitor with instructions as to when the exam is to be administered and how and when the completed exam is to be returned. Students residing within commuting distance of Stanford may be asked to come to campus for exams.

Whether you are taking a course online or coming to the Stanford campus, you may be expected to read supplemental course materials, such as case studies. Courses conducted at Stanford often include team projects as well as work to be completed in the evening and presented during a subsequent class meeting. In all cases, the more you take advantage of suggested readings and work, the better the learning experience.
Most online courses include an online exam which must be completed satisfactorily in order to receive a certificate of completion. Participation and full time attendance in courses conducted at Stanford is required in order to receive a course completion certificate. All professional courses require the completion of an evaluation form.
