Information for Undergraduates

Degree Requirements

Refer to the General Bulletin for the requirements for the various undergraduate degrees and for the academic rules and regulations (such as the Pass/No Pass and Repeat options) governing undergraduates.

Responsibility for meeting degree requirements and for knowing and adhering to academic regulations rests with each undergraduate. The Handbook for Undergraduate Students is available in the Office of Undergraduate Studies.

Eligibility for Financial Aid, Housing and Varsity Sports

Each semester, to be eligible for financial aid, for on-campus housing, or for participation in varsity sports, an undergraduate must be a full-time student enrolled for a minimum of 12 credit hours of courses.

Academic Standing

The academic performance of all undergraduate degree candidates is monitored to ensure that appropriate progress is being made toward earning degrees in terms of the grades and number of credit-hours earned each semester. To learn more about good academic standing, academic probation and separation, see Academic Standing Regulations.

Course Prerequisites

Consult the General Bulletin course descriptions and Class Search regarding course prerequisites or ask the instructor if you are in doubt about prerequisites for a course. A student will not be able to enroll in a course for which they have not completed the prerequisite(s). If you fail to complete the prerequisite(s) for a course for which you are registered, you may be required make an adjustment to your schedule during the drop/add period.

Special Approvals

To register for more than 19 credit hours, a student must have approval from their navigator.

For other registration approvals, such as registering for a class that is closed or outside of your academic career, see Permissions.

Audit a Course

For information on auditing a course, see Grades and Credit by Examination or contact your navigator.

Schedule Changes

Changes in non-credit physical education classes and changes from one section to another of a multiple section class may be made without an advisor's signature if the original schedule was approved by the advisor. See the Last Day to Register or Drop/Add and Registration and Enrollment Changes for more information.
