Adding Courses
Prior to the beginning of a term students may add program
required courses with the approval of their Advisor. Students
must first access WebAdvisor and add the course in the Course
Planning Wizard, then send an e-mail to their Advisor for
approval to register. Once their Advisor has approved the course
the student may register pending space availability and meeting
prerequisites.
Courses must be added prior to the close of business on the fifth
day of the term. Enrollment in courses is dependent upon space
availability and meeting prerequisites. Courses may not be added
after the fifth day of a term.
WITHDRAWAL
**A student who has received financial aid and who plans on
withdrawing from any course(s) will be responsible for the funds
that must be returned based on the date of withdrawal**
Dropping/Withdrawing from a Single Course or Courses
(NOT a total Withdraw)
1.
Dropping prior to the beginning of a term and during the first
week of the term: Students dropping from one or more course(s)
prior to the beginning of the term may do so through the use of
WebAdvisor. Courses dropped before the beginning of the term
and during the first week will not appear on the official
transcript.
2.
Withdrawing from a course or courses after the first week of
the term: The deadline to withdraw from one or more course(s)
without grade penalty is the last day of the tenth week of the Fall
and Spring semesters and the last day of the fifth week of the
Summer term. Students must use WebAdvisor to withdraw from
the course before the end of the last day to withdraw to receive a
“W” grade. These deadlines are published on the EITC website
and in the College catalog. A grade of “W” will appear on the
official transcript for each course they withdrew from after the
first week and prior to the published deadline.
3.
Students who fail to complete the official drop process will be
considered enrolled and will be graded accordingly.
Total Withdrawal from All Semester/Term Courses
The
deadline for Total Withdrawal from college without grade
penalty is the last day of the tenth week of the Fall and Spring
semesters and last day of the fifth week for Summer term. The
Total Withdrawal form is available online and must be submitted
to the Registrar before the end of the last day to withdraw to
receive a “W” grade. These deadlines are published on the EITC
website and in the College catalog. A grade of “W” will appear
on the official transcript for each course they withdrew from
after the first week and prior to the published deadline. A petition
is required if requesting to withdraw without grade penalty after
the published deadline. A petition will only be authorized in
cases of documented circumstances of hardship, medical issues,
(documentation is required from health care provider) or training
related employment. Petitions granting late Total Withdrawals
are decided by the Student Services Committee.
Repeating Courses:
Course repetition to improve grades is
allowed, regardless of the grade received, with the exception of
some professional program components. Therefore, it is
recommended to visit with your advisor before repeating a
course. Courses awarded “C-” grades or higher may be repeated.
However, the credit for the repeated course will not be included
in the calculation for federal financial aid awards. A grade issued
by an instructor is the prerogative of the instructor and normally
may not be changed except to correct a recording error. Any
question about the accuracy of a grade should be referred to the
appropriate instructor. When a course has been repeated, the
credit used in calculating the GPA is the grade and credit earned
the last time the repeated class was taken. The grade for the most
recent class will be used for computing semester and/or
cumulative GPA. Both grades will appear on the student’s
permanent record.
Grade Appeal:
Any grade appeal must be formally submitted to
the Registrar’s Office no later than 20 working days after the
beginning of the succeeding semester in which the student
received her/his grade.
Auditing Courses:
Students may audit courses on a space
available basis without credit or grade. Students taking a course
for “no credit” need not complete assignments or exams used
to determine grades. The intent to audit a course must be stated
at the time of registration. The fee for audit is the same as for
credit. Audited courses are not counted as part of a student’s
enrollment status and students cannot receive financial aid for
audited courses. Audited courses will be recorded on transcripts
as “AU” and “0” credit.
Academic Standards:
To maintain good academic standing you
are expected to make continued progress toward the
completion of your selected program of study. Academic
Standards are evaluated using two measurements:
1.
You are expected to maintain a cumulative grade point
average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher .
2.
You are expected to complete your selected program of study
within 150% of the credit hours required for program completion
.
Each student’s progress is evaluated after each semester by the
Registrar. Failure to progress toward program completion at
a rate consistent with the standards of progress will result in
academic probation.
Academic Honesty:
Academic honesty mandates the use of
one’s own thoughts and materials in writing papers, taking tests,
and in other classroom, or shop/lab related activities. Students
who aid others in any infraction of academic honesty are
considered equally guilty.
Academic Dishonesty includes but is not limited to:
Cheating
- intentionally using or attempting to use unauthorized
materials, information, or study aids in any academic exercise.
The term “academic exercise” includes all forms of work
submitted for credit hours.
