General Curriculum

Add/Drop Rules   Courses may be added only during the two weeks (14 calendar days) following final registration.

Courses may be dropped only during the McIntire School's drop period, not to exceed six weeks (42 calendar days) following final registration. After the six-week period students are not allowed to drop or withdraw from any Commerce or Non-Commerce courses.

In addition, required courses cannot be dropped at any time.

All Course Action Forms must be approved by the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs of the McIntire School. Forms are available in Room 136, Monroe Hall.

Attendance   Students are expected to attend all lectures and other prescribed activities of the courses for which they are registered. Although course attendance requirements are set by the course instructor, any student who is absent from more than 50 percent of the lectures will automatically receive a grade of F in that course.

Course Completion   No 400-level Commerce courses can be taken prior to satisfactory completion of: (1) the humanities and foreign language prerequisites, and (2) all required third-year courses (see Degree Requirements).

Course Restrictions   Commerce students may elect to take no more than one credit of Physical Education or one credit of EDHS Physical Education-related courses as part of their 120-credit course of study.

Course Credit Requirements (Semester)   Students are normally expected to register for 15 credits. Special permission is required to register for 12 to 14 credits. Special permission is also required to register for more than 17 credits, except that a student may register for three more credits than were passed the preceding semester, up to 21 total credits. Requests for exceptions must be received and granted by the Academic Performance (Rules) Committee prior to the end of the add/drop period.

A degree candidate needing 27 or fewer credits to meet degree requirements may, in either (not both) of the last two semesters of candidacy, carry as few as 12 credits. However, any student carrying less than 15 credits will not be eligible for the dean's list.

Credit/No Credit Option   Courses taken on a CR/NC basis before entering the McIntire School may be applied toward a student's degree requirements. After enrollment in the McIntire School, students may enroll in non-Commerce courses on a CR/NC basis, but these courses cannot be used to satisfy any School or University requirement. CR/NC courses may be taken only on an overload basis (i.e., above the minimum 15 credit graded course load). Commerce courses may not be taken on a CR/NC basis.

Dean's List   Any student who has passed at least 15 credits of graded work in the preceding semester, of which nine or more credits are Commerce courses, without failure in any course, and with a grade point average in the top 20 percent of the School, will be placed on the Dean's List of Distinguished Students. Courses taken on a CR/NC basis may not be counted toward the 15-credit minimum. Any student receiving an F, NC, or NG during the semester is not eligible to be on the dean's list.
