The FAES Graduate School at NIH announces the schedule of courses for the spring 2010 semester. The majority of the evening classes sponsored by the Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences will be given on the NIH campus.
Courses are offered in biochemistry, biology,
biotechnology (daytime courses), chemistry,
immunology, languages, medicine, microbiology,
pharmacology, statistics, technology transfer, alternative medicine, MCAT, GRE and courses of general interest. A technology transfer
certificate program is also being offered.
It is possible to transfer credits earned to other institutions for degree work, with their approval.
Classes will begin the week of Jan. 25; mail registration
ends Dec. 31. An open house will be held Jan. 5 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the FAES Social and Academic Center, 9101 Old Georgetown Rd.); walk-in registration will be accepted then and also Jan. 6-13. Tuition is $115 per credit
hour and courses may be taken for credit or audit. Courses that qualify for institute support as training should be cleared with supervisors and administrative officers as soon as possible. Both the vendorís copy of the training form (SF-182) and the FAES registration form must be submitted at the time of registration. Note that FAES cannot access training forms entered in the NIHTS system; a signed hard copy (vendorís copy of SF-182) is needed in order to process registrations for classes. Asking your institute to pay your tuition is a preliminary step to registration
but does not constitute registration with the FAES Graduate School.
