Research in Workforce Education typically is offered for academic credit by the Workforce Education & Development academic program at Penn State during Spring Semester.

The version of Research in Workforce Education designed and offered by David Passmore is available to allow for alternative completion of WF ED 550 outside the standard semester schedule. A student may complete tasks for this course at any time during the year and may receive credit for course completion the next time that WF ED 550 is offered for credit by the Office of the University Registrar. No credit is given for work completed unless the student seeks and receives prior approval for alternative completion of WF ED 550.
