I think, as Talossan is a practical qualification, I think a simple diploma after passing an exam in a certain level of the language would be more appropriate than having a credit based system for Talossan courses.
Like I do a course in what the CUG defines as Level 1 Talossan. I take the exam, and I walk out with a GDTL Level 1. That way I'm now ready for being recognised as a speaker of Level 1 Talossan straight away.
As Hooligan is the only Talossan teacher here at the moment, I'd like to hear his opinion.
Why can't each course earn a "Certificate of Completion" AND some credits, so that if you complete one course, you still get to enjoy the certificate, but if you complete a whole course of studies, you can get the diploma?

These are great ideas. A course completion certificate would be nice to have since the college (for now) does not offer enough courses for one to earn a diploma. I would like to hear the opinions of the registrar, Flip Molinar, and also past and present professors, including Lord Hooligan.

I for one, love this idea. As the regent has said, this will provide us with an avenue to reward and recognize those students who have performed at an extraordinarily high level, at least until the size of our course catalog grows sufficiently enough to allow the granting of diplomas in particular areas of study.

I will (as long as someone reminds me) be happy to issue Certificates of Completion for those who satisfactorily complete the "Introduction to the Talossan Language" course that will be getting underway shortly.
