New Course Extension Policy (Incompletes)
The following policy applies to all students at all levels, effective January 1, 2014: LTSP each instructor is entitled to formulate his/her own policy regarding whether or not extensions will be granted for outstanding coursework. However, for extensions longer than two weeks after the end of the term (which for Intensive courses is the final due date of course assignments), the student is to complete an “Extension Request” Form. Both instructor and student are to agree upon a reasonable new course completion date, ordinarily not to exceed three months beyond the end of the term, except in extreme circumstances when clear need is demonstrated. In no cases will coursework be accepted after more than a year has passed.
Registration for Spring Semester 2014 (including January Term) is now open. The on-time registration deadline is Friday, December 13; a $50 late registration fee will apply for all new registrations received after that date ($15 for late-registering auditors). The late registration fee does not apply to students who are registered for other January/Spring classes. To register, find your registration category below, and read the instructions related to your category.
Students who have already registered for a term but need to change their registrations must do so prior to the late registration (drop/add) deadline for the term (prior to the second meeting of any short-term course). There is no fee for adding or changing courses, though a $20 cancellation fee will be assessed for dropping a course without adding another in its place. Changes may be made online via Henry, via an email to the Registrar, or by submitting a Change of Registration form.
Dropping a course after the drop/add deadline is subject to the rules governing withdrawal. If you need to withdraw from a course, you must submit notification in writing to the Registrar; any refunds for which you are eligible will be based upon the date of receipt by the Registrar of your written notification. If you simply fail to attend or stop attending any course for which you are registered, the consequences will be your receiving a failing grade and being responsible for all course fees. In extreme circumstances (e.g., lengthy hospitalization), you may petition the Dean in writing for a late withdrawal to avoid receiving a failing grade; however, there can be no refund of any tuition or fees.
