Courses must be added within the first seven calendar days of the semester. Please check with the professor prior to adding a class online to assure that can complete any coursework already underway, as the class may have already met for the semester, and also, to confirm that they have the appropriate prerequisites, if any. For schedule adjustment for quarter or summer session classes, please refer to the academic calendar.
Important information about waitlists! Final waitlist processing occurs the week before the semester begins. If you are still on a waitlist after this time, there are no guarantees that you will be registered for the course automatically once a seat becomes available.
Withdrawing (Dropping) Courses
Students have the first six calendar days of the semester to drop a class without it appearing on their transcript. After this date and until end of the 10th week, the official withdrawal period is determined. During that time, a "W" grade is assigned. After the tenth week of the semester and through the last day of classes, students who withdraw will receive a grade consistent with university policy which will be determined by the instructor. Withdrawal periods will be prorated for summer and intersession terms. For schedule adjustment for quarter or summer session classes, please refer to the academic calendar. There is a maximum limit of 16 credits of withdraws. ("W" grades assigned before spring 1994 are not counted for this maximum limit.)
A student desiring to audit a course must submit an official request to the Student Enrollment Center after securing the approval of the professor of the course. A change of registration from credit to audit or from audit to credit may occur only during the first seven calendar days of the semester. Auditing students pay the same tuition and fees as students taking courses for credit.
Please note: Senior citizens registering for courses under the special student status will automatically be assigned an audit grade.
Undergraduate students will be limited to a maximum total of six repeats during their enrollment at East Stroudsburg University. This is an individual course count (not credit). Students cannot repeat more than six courses.
A single course can only be taken a maximum of three times. That is, the course should appear no more than three times on a transcript. The most recent grade, regardless of whether it is higher or lower, will be the grade used for the GPA calculation. All other grades earned for repeated courses will be marked as such on the student's academic transcript.
Undergraduates Taking More Than 18 Credits
Undergraduate students who wish to register for more than 18 credits must secure permission from their advisor. Signed permission cards should be returned to the Center for Enrollment Services along with your add card for the additional course(s).
The above policies are subject to change. See your academic advisor for furthur details. Additional information is also available in the academic catalog.
