A DS course fee of $50 per unit is assessed for a DS course taken in the Fall or Spring terms. No DS course

CLASS CHANGES

1.

Adding Courses

. The deadline to enroll in a TMU class depends on the type of class and the academic term

as follows:

a.

Non-online class in Fall or Spring: Tenth business day (excluding holidays) of term

b.

Non-online class in Winter: First day of class

c.

Non-online class in Summer: Second day of class

d.

Online class in any term: Fourth day of online class

2.

Dropping Courses

. The deadline to

drop a class without penalty

is identical to the deadline to add

(above). Thereafter, a drop will be denoted on the student’s record (transcript) by a grade of “W” for

withdrawn. The deadline to

withdraw

from a class (with a grade of “W”) depends on the type of class and

the academic term as follows:

a.

Non-online class in Fall or Spring: End of 13

th

week of term

b.

Non-online class in Winter: Fourth day of class

c.

Non-online class in Summer: Eighth day of class

d.

Online class in any term: Tuesday of sixth week of online class

Courses may not be dropped after the deadlines listed above except in the case of serious illness. Contact the

Registrar’s Office immediately in these instances.

3.

Changes in Course Schedule.

If a student desires to drop a course after the penalty-free period, he/she

must have the permission of his/her instructor, academic advisor, and the Office of the Registrar to make

changes. Forms are available in the Office of the Registrar.

4.

Repeating Courses.

A student may repeat any course that was previously attempted. No additional credits

may be earned, however, by repeating a course that a student has already passed (grade of D- or higher).

When a course is repeated, the subsequent grade replaces the previous grade for GPA purposes (even if

lower), but the previous grade remains on the student’s academic record and transcript. Some departments

may require that a student repeat a course within the major if the grade earned was below a certain level (e.g.

C-).

5.

Course and Lab Fees.

These fees will be refunded if a student drops a course during the first two weeks of

the semester. After that time, course and lab fees are not refundable.

6.

Withdrawing from School.

Withdrawal is processed on a form available from the Office of the Registrar.

Any refund due the student is determined according to the refund policy found in the “Student Account

Policies” section of this catalog.
