PROCEDURES and RESPONSIBILITIES

 

Academic Offerings

Quantitative and qualitative requirements for the various degrees, major, and minors are to be found in the catalog under "Course Requirements."   Likewise, descriptions of course offerings, as well as the suggested curriculum for each degree of the pre-professional program, are to be found in the catalog sections that relate to the various divisions and departments.

 

Schedule of Classes

A schedule of classes should be chosen with extreme care. Fee penalties applicable to program changes are described in the official catalogs in the section “Financial Information, Special Fees.”

The following regulations apply to changes in schedule:

  1. The last day to add a class is the sixth class day of a semester (second class day, summer term). (See University Calendar.)
  2. To add or drop a course after the late registration period, a student must complete a Drop/Add form from the Registrar’s office. Failure to observe this regulation results in a recorded grade of “F” in the course
  3. Courses dropped after the deadline printed in the University Calendar are recorded on the student’s permanent record as “W” or “F”.
  4. No course may be changed from Credit/Audit without permission of instructor after grades go into effect. (See University Calendar.)
  5. The last day to withdraw from a course will be the 75% point in the semester. (See University Calendar.)

The “Schedule of Classes” is prepared by the Office of the Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs from information supplied by the various chairs of divisions and departments to deans of the colleges and schools. Faculty must recognize the practical need of a balanced schedule which may result in the teaching of classes at times other than those desired by the staff, especially late afternoon and/or evening classes.

Class schedule changes (lists of closed, reopened, or new sections) are issued from time to time during early registration and registration. Faculty who advise students should assure themselves of the correctness of the class schedule information they provide students. The correct version of the schedule is available on-line on the Delta State University website.
