Important College Policy Regarding Course Drop-Add Period and Audit Information

Effective Session 2 (January 13, 2003), students CANNOT add a course following the 1st day the class meets. Students CAN drop a course during the 1st week of class and be eligible for a refund. (See a counselor/advisor to finalize your schedule, so you won't be left without the classes you want or need.) Students may not change from credit to audit status after the end of the first week of classes.

Grading and Repeat Course Policies

State policy states that students may not repeat a college credit course for which a grade of "C" or higher has been earned except by appeal to the campus Academic Appeals committee.

Students may repeat a college credit course one time without penalty. At the third attempt, students will pay the full cost of instruction. The full cost of instruction rate for 2002/2003 is $202.16 per credit hour. In addition, at the third attempt students may NOT receive a grade of "I", "W", or "X" but must receive the letter grade earned. This grade will be averaged into the overall grade point average.
