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
