An official registration is the acceptance by the Registrar and by the Bursar of an individual’s course registration form with the appropriate amount of tuition and fees. Students are not members in any course or class until their names appear on the offical roster or the lecturer has received official eveidence of registration or the class permit card from the registrar.
The students remain members of a class until grades are reported or until they withdraw from the course or until if for any reason they are suspended from class. Students are considered present once they have reported to the class.
Modifying Student Courses
For Fall and Spring semesters the add/drop period lasts one week, the first week of classes. During the summer, the last day to add classes is the day following the start of classes. The ADD/Drop Form must be completed.
After the add/drop period and through the end of the first 10 weeks of classes, students can withdraw from classes. During weeks 2 through 5 of the Fall and spring semesters a ‘W’ grade is assigned. From weeks 6 through 10 a ‘WP’ or ‘WF’ is assigned according to student performance up to the point of withdrawal. During the Summer the ‘W’ grade is assigned during the first five days, and the ‘WP’ or ‘WF’ during days 6 through 11.
Any student who experience unusual hardship such as a serious medical condition may seek special consideration through a written petition to the President. Petitions should, where possible, be documented with supporting statements from a doctor, counsellor, or family member who has knowledge of the situation. If in the opinion of the President, the request is justified, a grade of ‘Q’ (dropped by the President’s permission) will be recorded on the student’s transcript.
Students are reminded that they must follow the official withdrawal process, including using the Late Withdrawal Form if they do not wish to complete a course. Failure to do so will result in a grade of ‘F’ on the student’s official transcript.
Repeat Course Action
Students receiving an unsatisfactory grade in a course are allowed to repeat the course three times. Repeated unsuccessful attempts affect the student’s GPA and may make the students subject to academic warning, academic probation or academic suspension. If a course taken at the College is repeated at the College, the official grade is the best letter grade earned although all grades appear on the academic transcript.
The student is responsible for notifying the Registry when a course is repeated. Only the best letter grade earned in the repeated course will be used in computing the cumulative grade point average (GPA).
