Miscellaneous Policies

  • full-time course load is 12 credits: all degree-seeking students must be full time
  • no late charges during the same term for circumstances beyond student's control: medical or departmental convenience changes after appropriate Faculty EC action.
  • section switches during the same term after the initial drop/add (1st week) require only appropriate instructor approvals and charge (no Faculty EC action or adviser or dean signature necessary)
  • when a class with an associated non-credit lab or tutorial has been dropped, the corequisite section may be dropped without penalty by the student within the first two weeks (no signature or fee required)
  • overloads and underloads: for overloads: Students must submit a request for overload (online at go.wlu.edu/overload) to carry greater than 15 credits. For underloads: A student must obtain an academic dean's approval (Campbell or Diette) for 11 credits, and Faculty EC approval is necessary to take fewer than 11 credits (see Dean Straughan)
