Interdisciplinary Classes
An individual class might readily qualify under two or more Colleges or Divisions. For example, a class on "Field Heraldry" could as easily qualify for Martial Arts/Field Arts as SCA Studies/Heraldry. However, a class on "The Construction of a 15th Century Houppelande" would only qualify for History/1400-1500 if the class included a substantial amount of the history and culture that surrounded the garment.

Online Classes
The ROIU is not currently accepting online classes. However, SCA Corporate is exploring how to make them available for A&S activities. Should this investigation prove fruitful, online classes may be considered for inclusion in the ROIU.
