Registration consists primarily of three steps:
Changes in a student's class schedule can be made during the continuous enrollment period. Instructions for drop/add are made available in the class schedule.
Students with outstanding debts to the university, whether financial or material, may have their enrollment delayed until the matter is resolved.
To ensure that students have opportunities to make alternative decisions about classes without decreasing the learning experience, the following enrollment policies are:
These procedures apply to all courses taken from Emporia State University, whether they are offered on the main campus, in off-campus locations, or via mediated instruction. Procedures apply to both graduate and undergraduate classes.
Students who have exceptional circumstances may petition for a variance to these deadlines. Further information is available in the Registrar's office.
The official DROP period shall consist of the first 10 class days of each semester. No record of classes that are dropped during the drop period shall appear on the transcript.
For classes taught in less than the regular semester, the official drop period shall be determined by the Registrar's office.
If a student wishes to withdraw from one or more, but not all courses, he/she should seek the counsel of his/her advisor and obtain the properly signed forms. The student must withdraw through the Office of the Registrar. If the student wishes to withdraw from all courses, he/she should contact the Office of the Registrar for information.
If a student elects to withdraw from one or more classes after the official drop period and through the tenth week of a regular semester, the grade of "W" will be recorded on the transcript regardless of the student's academic standing in that class. Students must have their advisor sign the withdrawal form.
After the tenth week of the regular semester the student may not withdraw from class nor may the instructor assign the grade of "W". In extreme cases, the student may appeal to the Office of the Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs to receive a grade of "W" after the tenth week
Classes taught in less than the regular semester will follow a similar pattern. If a student elects to withdraw from one of these shorter classes after the official drop period and before 5/8 of the class periods have been completed, the grade of "W" will be recorded on the transcript. After 5/8 of the class periods have been completed, the student may not withdraw nor may the instructor assign the grade of "W." In extreme cases, the student may appeal to the Office of the Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs to withdraw with the grade of "W" after 5/8 of the class periods have been completed.
