Courses and Registration
Students will not receive credit for courses in which they are not properly registered. It is the student’s responsibility to verify that they are registered for the correct courses they are actually taking.
CHECK YOUR CLASS SCHEDULE AT: online.asbury.edu.
Note: The University reserves the right to change degree requirements, major and minor requirements, and course offerings, and to cancel any course not elected by a sufficient number of students at the time offered.
REGISTRATION CHANGES DURING DROP/ADD
1. A student can drop a class during the official Drop/Add period through the online registration, and will have the course cancelled and will not be charged for the course.
2. For traditional undergraduates Drop/Add is the first week of the program term. Last day to drop or add a class is listed in the Academic Calendar in this Bulletin.
3. The Drop/Add period for the School of Graduate and Professional Studies (APS and Graduate) is set by program or campus. See “Important Academic Dates” at the front of this Bulletin for specific dates for your program and campus.
4. No course can be dropped after the Drop/Add deadline. (see withdrawal from a course).
In the APS and Graduate programs with modular classes that begin at later dates in the term students have the option to Exchange a course. 1. The exchange must occur prior to the start date of both courses involved. 2. The courses being dropped in exchange and the courses to be picked up in exchange must be worth the same credits.
A degree student may request to audit one class within their full time semester. A non-degree student who only attends an audited class is classified and billed as an auditor.
1. Prior to auditing any course a student must have applied and been admitted to the University through an Office of Admissions.
2. Students must request to audit a particular course during registration for a term. Audit requests must be made to the registrar’s office before the end of the Drop/Add period.
3. The Registrar will seek instructor approval for an auditor and will determine if there will be room in the class for an auditor after regular enrollment is completed. Priority seating is given to credit students.
3. No more than one course may be audited per semester.
4. Only lecture type courses, or the lecture part of laboratory courses, may be audited. Activity courses may not be audited (e.g., lab courses, computer programming, physical education, internships, recreation, ceramics, and studio art).
5. Neither class discussion nor taking of examinations is permitted, except by special arrangement with the instructor.
6. If an auditor submits daily assignments, the instructor is not obligated to read or correct them.
7. The instructor will assign a grade of "S" (satisfactory) or "U" (unsatisfactory) based on attendance arrangement with instructor and general cooperation.
8. No credit hours or quality points shall be awarded for courses audited.
9. There is no cost additional to regular tuition for a full‑time student auditing a course. The cost to persons other than full‑time students is $40 per credit hour.
SENIOR CITIZENS WAIVER
Students enrolled in the traditional undergraduate program who are at least 62 years of age and who are U.S. citizens may receive a waiver of tuition for a maximum of 4.0 credit hours per academic semester (including summer). The following stipulations apply: (1) the waiver includes only tuition and does not apply to other fees; (2) if the person desires to audit the class all the rules for audited courses apply. The $40 per credit hour audit cost is waived. (3) If the person desires credit for the class, all prerequisites and requirements must be met; (4) credits may apply toward a degree program; (5) housing must be secured off campus.
UNDERGRADUATES IN MASTER LEVEL COURSES
Exceptional students who have been admitted to the master’s program and who are in their last semester of undergraduate work may be permitted to enroll for graduate and undergraduate courses provided the total academic load does not exceed 12 semester hours. Only undergraduate students with a minimum 3.50 cumulative grade point average who demonstrate outstanding scholastic ability and who satisfy the requirements for regular graduate admission will be considered. Professional requirements, including student teaching, must have been completed. In such a case the student is required to pay all graduate course fees. In no case may course credit count toward both a graduate and an undergraduate degree.
WITHDRAWAL FROM A COURSE
1. A student must contact the registrar’s office to officially be withdrawn from a class.
2. Students who want to drop a class after the set Drop/Add period for their program can only withdraw from the class. The class remains on their schedule as part of their registered hours for billing and financial aid.
3. A grade of "W" is recorded on the transcript for a course dropped after the Drop/Add period and before the last date to withdraw from a course. The course does not factor into the calculation of the GPA.
4. Students receive no refund for tuition and/or fees for an individual course which is withdrawn after the official Drop/Add date for a class.
5. Traditional Undergraduate Students: Please see the published “last day to withdraw from a class” with a grade of W” in the academic calendar for each semester. After that date student must receive the earned grade for the class.
6. APS and Graduate Students may withdraw from a class with a grade of “W” before 2/3 of the class sessions have elapsed. See also COURSE EXCHANGES for modular classes that start later in the term.
7. A student who stops attending a class without giving official withdrawal notice to the Registrar’s Office will remain registered and will receive an "F" in that course at the end of the semester.
