Saturday Course Information
The closing dates for registration and withdrawal are found in the Academic Calendar. There is no late charge for adding a Saturday course.

If you take any session of the six week courses and intend to secure student loans, you must apply by the first day of the course.

If you are a part-time student and you withdraw from the fall six-week course, you are eligible for refunds under the following schedule:
  1. Complete refund if the withdrawal takes place before the start of the course.
  2. 50% refund if the withdrawal takes place after the 1st class meeting.
  3. No refund if the withdrawal takes place after the 2nd class meeting.
  4. Students may withdraw from a six week course with a grade of W up to and including the 4th class meeting.
Weekend Intensive Information
The closing date for registration in a weekend intensive course is one week prior to the beginning of the course. Exceptions to this policy are at the discretion of the academic department. There is no late charge for adding a weekend course.

If you are a part-time student and you withdraw from a weekend intensive course before the beginning of the course, you will receive a full tuition refund.

If you withdraw after the first weekend (for weekend courses of two or three credit hours) but before the second weekend of the course, you will receive a 50% course tuition refund.

Complete policy information regarding withdrawals is available in the University catalog.

The Credit/No Credit grade option is available to students for special session courses. For a one credit course, this grading option must be contracted prior to the beginning of the course. If more than one credit course, this grading option must be contracted prior to the second class meeting.

You are required to attend all sessions of a weekend intensive course. If you miss any part of the
class, your final course grade may be reduced, possibly even to a failing grade. If you can not attend all sessions, you should not enroll in a weekend intensive course or should withdraw from the course.

Weekend Intensive Course Requirements

Weekend Intensive courses require readings prior to the first class meeting.

Students may be tested on that material during the first class meeting.

Courses may require the completion of assignments after the last weekend meeting.

Students should access a copy of the reading assignment in the library or on-line at the library web site. Select “Electronic Reserve.”
