University of Iowa student-athletes, starting next semester, can take the majority of their required courses online. The UI Presidential Committee on Athletics voted unanimously this week on a policy allowing student-athletes to take only three credit hours per semester in a traditional face-to-face class, reversing a previous policy allowing only one online course per semester. “I do see this as a step in the right direction,” said JoElla Guagliardo, a UI senior and field hockey player from Deerfield, Ill., at the PCA meeting Thursday in Iowa City. Online courses give student-athletes more options if their practices conflict with face-to-face courses, she said.
