a score of “4” or “5”. CLEP examination credit
may be granted for all courses based on a score of
55 or higher. The college will grant credit for IB
examinations with scores of “5”, “6” or “7”. The
College will grant credit for DSST examinations on
an ACE recommened basis.
For students entering TMC as freshmen or

to the end of the student’s first semester of his/her
senior year. For transfer juniors or seniors, CLEP
credit will be awarded up to the fourth week of the
final semester of the senior year.

interview with their academic advisor at least
once per semester prior to registration.

addition to their advisor, will receive a copy of
this evaluation. A student may contact the Office
of the Registrar or refer to the bottom of their
student schedule on Self-Service for the name
of his/her advisor.

permanent transcript. Courses dropped from the
third to the thirteenth week of a semester will
appear on the transcript with a grade of “W.”
Courses may not be dropped after the thirteenth
week of class except in the case of serious illness.
Students may repeat
courses in which grades of ‘D’ or ‘F’ are earned.

grade was earned, only the repeated grade will
count in the computation of the GPA. The
course and grade of ‘D’ or ‘F’ will, however,
remain on the student’s academic record. Some
departments may demand the repeat of a course
within the major that was credited with a ‘C-’.

weeks of a semester, he/she must have the
permission of his/her instructor, academic

changes. Forms are available in the Office of

These fees will be
refunded if a student drops a course during the
first two weeks of the semester. After that time,
