Transfer of Credit
Four-year institutions will accept a maximum of 64 semester hours of credit toward degree requirements. Engineering students may transfer up to 72 hours. Students planning to transfer should work closely with their advisor. The new computerized advisor program provides accurate and up-to-date information about transferring courses. College handbooks and catalogs are located in the Advising and Recruitment Center. Students who transfer to Kansas Regents Institutions are subject to the terms of the Transfer and Articulation Agreement.
Courses may be taken one at a time for credit. However, any course may be repeated. The last repeat of a course shall replace any earlier credit hours or grade points earned for such course. EXCEPTION: Some courses may be taken for credit more than one time. These courses are indicated in the Course Description section. These are either activity or participation courses in which requirements vary from term to term.
Dropping and Adding Classes
If a student wishes to change class time, drop a class, or add a class, he/she must contact the Registrar's office.
- During pre-registration a student will be allowed to make course changes, which must first be approved by his/her academic advisor.
- A student who withdraws from a course after the 20th day of classes will receive a "W" (no grade or penalty) for that course.
- A student will be allowed to add a course up to and including the Final Add Date as indicated on the Master Calendar. The final Add Date is determined by calculating twenty-five (25) percent of the allotted class time. Courses not meeting the entire semester will be calculated in the same manner.
- A student will be allowed to drop a course up to and including the Final Drop Day as indicated on the Master Calendar. The Final Drop Day is determined by calculating eighty (80) percent of the allotted class time. Courses not meeting the entire semester will be calculated in the same manner.
- A student remains responsible for payment of tuition and fees if the drop occurs after the tuition refund dates as indicated on the Master Calendar.
A report showing the grades of a student is issued at the end of a semester or session. All final grades are mailed to the home of each student, with the exception of foreign students who may pick up their grades in the International Student Services Office. Grades reported at the end of each semester are recorded on the permanent record of the student and are the grades reported on any transcript issued by the Registrar.
Any person graduating with an Associate Degree who has an overall grade point average of 3.40 with no grade below a "C" is an honor graduate.
