Drop/Add — Adjusting Your Schedule

Registered students may drop and/or add classes on the date(s) indi­cated on the Registration Calendar. Note the following requirements:

1. The regulations pertaining to dropping and adding courses are stated as they pertain to regular courses fifteen weeks or more in duration. These regulations are applied proportionately to courses that are offered for less than fifteen weeks. Students can click on the Course Reference Number (CRN) on the class schedule website to view specific deadline dates for each course(s).Students can also contact the Registration Office for any questions regarding these reg­ulations.

2. Students who do not officially drop their courses within the first two weeks of classes are financially obligated to pay for the courses even if they have not attended any class sessions.

3. Students who officially drop full term courses before the conclusion of the first two weeks of classes (for the Fall and Winter terms) are entitled to 100% tuition cancellation, and the courses do not appear on the students' academic records.

4. Students who officially drop fifteen-week courses after the second week of classes (for the Fall and Winter terms) are not entitled to any tuition cancellation; however, courses dropped prior to the conclusion of the fourth week of classes do not appear on students' academic records. After the fourth week of classes, courses dropped are con­sidered a withdrawal. The withdrawal will include a notation on the academic record of 'WP' - Passing, 'WF' - Failing, or 'WN' - Never Attended, beginning in 2006-07.

5. Students are not permitted to add courses after the first week of the term without instructor and departmental permission. Depart­ments are required to enter a late add permit/override for students if exceptions are made to permit adding of classes during the second week.

6. Students are required to submit their withdrawal through Pipeline for their instructors' approval for withdrawals processed after the fourth week of the term. Once logged into Pipeline, click the Student tab, under Registration from the Student Services menu, choose Withdraw from a Class, follow the prompts on each page.

P, N, S, U, M, ANC, BNC, CNC, UNC, SNC, PNC, MNC, and NNC grades are not reflected in the grade point average.

NR — No grade reported by the instructor.

P or N —Passed or Not Passed (undergraduate students only). These grades do not affect grade point averages, but undergraduate courses completed with grade of P may count toward a degree.

S, M, or U — Satisfactory, Marginal, or Unsatisfactory performance in non-degree courses and in certain designated courses such as field work, practicums and internships. These grades do not affect grade point averages.

Marks

The mark of I' (Incomplete) is given to an undergraduate student when he/she has not completed all of the course work as planned for the term and when there is, in the judgment of the instructor, a rea­sonable probability that the student will complete the course suc­cessfully without again attending regular class sessions. The student should be passing at the time the grade of I is given. A written con­tract specifying the work to be completed should be signed by the student and instructor. Responsibility for completing all course work rests with the student.

The mark of I' will be changed to a letter grade when the student completes the course work as arranged with the instructor or, if the instructor has left the University, with the Chairperson of the depart­ment or other instructional unit. Work must be completed within one calendar year. There are NO extensions.

The mark of I' will not be awarded if, in the instructor's judgment, it is necessary for the student to attend subsequent sessions of the class. If regular attendance is necessary to complete coursework, the stu­dent must register for the class for the semester in which attendance is planned. The student will be assessed tuition and applicable fees for the second registration. If the student decides to register for the course, subsequent to the assignment of an I', then the mark of I' for the original election will be changed to a Withdrawal/Passing (WP'), and the student will be responsible for tuition and applicable fees for the second registration. Students are responsible for notifying their department and the department offering the course that they have reregistered for the course so that the I' is not changed to an F.'

Any unchanged mark of I' will, within one calendar year from the time it was received, be changed to a grade of F or failure. This will not be changed after the I' is replaced.

The mark of WF (Official Withdrawal Failing) is given when the student withdraws from the course in accordance with University pol­icy and the student had earned a failing grade as of the date the with­drawal is approved.

The mark of WN (Withdrawal Non-Attendance) is given to stu­dents who did not attend any classes and/or did not complete any assignments and/or did not participate in credit-earning activities by the withdrawal date.

The mark of WP (Official Withdrawal Passing) is given when the student drops the course in accordance with University policy and the student had earned a passing grade as of the date the withdrawal is approved.

The mark of Y (Deferred) is given when the student is up-to-date in the work of a course planned to continue beyond the semester (i.e., essay, thesis, dissertation and certain courses taken in sequence).

The mark of Z (Auditor) is given when the student has formally reg­istered for the course for audit. The student's Academic Dean or his/her designee must provide written audit authorization to the student at the time of registration.

Passed — Not Passed Program

The University has a program whereby undergraduate students may elect to take courses in which they will be marked as Passed (P) or Not Passed (N) in place of a letter grade. The following regulations apply:

1. The student may elect one P-N course per semester with the con­sent of an advisor, but he/she may not elect more than six courses in all.

2. After classes have begun, a student may not change from Passed/Not Passed to a letter grade election or vice versa.

3. Courses taken for P-N may be used to satisfy competency require­ments; however, no course taken on this basis may be used to fulfill specific group or major requirements.

4. Credits for a P-N course may be used to fulfill graduation require­ments but will not count in the grade point average. In the event the student enrolls in more than six P-N courses, those beyond the per­missible maximum will be designated on the permanent record as not applicable toward graduation.

School of Business Administration: Students in the School of Busi­ness Administration may not take courses offered by the School of Business Administration on a passed / not passed basis.

Grades and Marks, Change of

Once recorded in the Office of the Registrar, grades/marks will be changed only if the instructor posts the grade change in the online grade/mark change system in Pipeline. Most changes must be posted within one calendar year. (Deferred (Y) grades are the excep­tion.) Failure grades that are posted as a result of a student not com­pleting an incomplete course may not be changed. After a degree has been awarded, the grades associated with that degree may not be changed. Other change of grades or marks older than a year must be approved by the department chair and the Associate Dean of the school or college that offered the course.

Credits, Definition of Credit Hours

A credit hour is an amount of work represented in intended learning outcomes and verified by evidence of student achievement that rea­sonably approximates not less than: 1) one hour of classroom or direct faculty instruction and a minimum of two hours of out-of-class student work each week for approximately fifteen weeks for one semester hour of credit, or the equivalent amount of work over a dif­ferent amount of time; or 2) at least an equivalent amount of work for other activities, including laboratory work, internships, practica, stu­dio work, and other academic work leading to the award of credit hours.

Transfer of Undergraduate Credits

Wayne State University policy accepts transfer credit from all accred­ited institutions of higher education, both community colleges and baccalaureate-granting colleges and universities.

No transfer grades apply in computing Wayne State grade point aver­ages.

Transfer Credit from Regionally Accredited Institutions: Wayne State University will accept equivalent academic credit from region­ally accredited baccalaureate-granting institutions, and up to sixty-four semester credits from community colleges and other regionally accredited institutions which offer Associate Degrees. (All credits will be evaluated in the latter case; the most relevant sixty-four credits will apply to the degree.) Courses must be completed with a grade of C or higher to transfer in to Wayne State.

Credit from Institutions NOT Regionally Accredited: Wayne State University will accept transfer credit from other accredited institu­tions, provided that the institution: 1) grants a baccalaureate or asso­ciate degree; 2) is fully accredited by an agency recognized by the Council on Postsecondary Education (COPA); and 3) the courses presented for transfer are shown to have equivalency or are deter­mined to be of a traditional academic nature.

Transfer Credit from Institutions in Candidacy Status: Wayne State University will accept for transfer those credits for which a grade of B or higher was earned from institutions with candidacy sta­tus from a regional accrediting agency.

Technical, Vocational and Applied Credit: To facilitate transfer of students, Wayne State University will accept for transfer up to twelve semester credits earned in technical, vocational and applied (TVA) courses at two- and four-year colleges if such courses are deter­mined to be related to a student's intended program. For students transferring from associate degree granting institutions, the twelve TVA credits will be included in the sixty-four credit limitation.

Transfer of Remedial or Developmental Course Work: Credit earned in courses designated remedial or developmental will not transfer.

Transfer of Redundant or Duplicative Course Work: Transfer credit will not be awarded for redundant course work (i.e., courses with substantially duplicative content). Credit will be awarded for only one course in any set of redundant courses.

Residency and Upper Division Requirements: Transfer students will be required to meet the University and College residency require­ments and to obtain the same number of upper division credits in ful­fillment of the baccalaureate degree as are required of native students in specific major programs.

Junior Standing: Wayne State University will award junior standing to all transfer students for whom fifty-six or more transferable semes­ter credits have been accumulated, whether they are transferred credits or credit earned at Wayne State University. Junior standing will not guarantee automatic entry to major and professional pro­grams in the Schools and Colleges. Transcripts will be individually evaluated to determine whether all prerequisites for major and pro­fessional standing have been met by native and transfer students.

Advanced Placement Tests

Superior performance in the College Board Advanced Placement Tests will entitle an entering freshman to consideration for advanced placement and/or advanced standing credit of up to a maximum of thirty-two semester credits of coursework in the areas covered by the examination. These areas include American history, European his­tory, art history, studio art, biology, chemistry, computer science, English, French, German, Latin, Spanish, mathematics, music litera­ture, music theory, and physics. Advanced placement and/or advanced standing credit will be awarded and such credit may satisfy General Education Requirements (see General Education Program) in accordance with policies adopted by the appropriate Department. Interested students should contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

College-Level Examination Program

The College Board sponsors the College-Level Examination Pro­gram (CLEP). This program gives students and prospective students the opportunity to demonstrate their academic proficiency at the freshman-sophomore college level in various areas and in specific subjects whether or not they have had previous formal college instruction in materials covered by the tests. As described by the Col­lege Board, the examinations are intended to provide a comprehen­sive measure of undergraduate achievement in the five basic areas of the liberal arts: English composition, humanities, mathematics, natural sciences and social sciences. They are not intended to mea­sure advanced training in any specific discipline, but rather to assess a student's knowledge of fundamental facts and concepts, his/her ability to perceive relationships and his/her understanding of the basic principles of a subject. The content of the Examinations is sim­ilar to the content of those subjects ordinarily included in the program of study required of most general education students in the first two years of college.

The Subject Examinations are essentially end-of-course tests devel­oped for widely taught undergraduate courses. They measure under­standing of basic facts and concepts, as well as the ability to apply such understanding to the solution of problems and the interpretation of materials. Questions that require of a student only rote recall are avoided.

Superior performance in these examinations will be considered as a basis for granting advanced placement and/or advanced standing credit as well as for waiving parts of the General Education Require­ments of the University (see General Education Program). For further information, please consult advisors, school or college offices, or University Advising Center at 313-577-8889.

For information on credit by Special Examination, see Examination, Credit by Special.

Ranking, Class

Ranks are determined according to the number of degree credits which the student has satisfactorily completed. The classifications are:

FRESHMAN: 0 to 28.99 credits, inclusive
SOPHOMORE: 29 to 55.99 credits, inclusive
JUNIOR: 56 to 87.99 credits, inclusive
SENIOR: 88 credits or above

Grade Point Average

The grade point average (g.p.a.) is the numerical index of the stu­dent's scholastic average. Points are assigned to each letter grade (see University Grading System, above) for each hour of credit. To compute your grade point average, multiply the grade points assigned to each course grade by the number of credits for each course; add the results and divide by the total number of credits.

For example, a grade of A in a class carrying 3 credits would be assigned 12 grade points (3 x 4), and a grade of C in a class carrying 4 credits would be assigned 8 grade points (4 x 2). In this example, the grade point average is: 20 (total grade points) divided by 7 (total credits attempted) = 2.85 g.p.a.

Credit for special examinations, transfer credit, and courses in which a mark of I W, WF, WN, or WP or a grade of S, U, M, P, and N, has been earned are excluded from grade point average computation.

Law School: This grade point system does not apply to Law School students.

Attendance and Performance, Responsible

Students must show diligence and are normally expected to com­plete the courses they elect. Irresponsible attendance is wasteful of both student and University resources. Those students who consis­tently receive excessive marks of I (incomplete), WF (Withdrawal Failing), WN (Withdrawal Non-Attendance), or WP (Withdrawal Passing) may be refused the privilege of further registration by the dean or the dean's designee of their school or college.
