Important Information
All FerrisNow course instructors must meet the instructor standards outlined in the FerrisNow Handbook and must be approved by Ferris State University to teach University courses.

The Course Offering Form should be submitted at least three months in advance of the course's start date. This ensures the FerrisNow Program can obtain University academic department and college approval to offer the course. It allows our staff time to build the course in our registration system and enroll students before the start date.

Courses submitted with less than three months before the start date may not be approved and built by the course's start date, which can delay student registration. Courses that are being taught by an instructor who has not yet been approved to teach FerrisNow courses may experience delays.
