Policies and Procedures

Drop/Withdraw Information

Classes may be added or dropped until December 21, 2017. Students dropping classes will not be billed.

Students registered for 2 courses may drop all but their last winter course using MySRU. If you are only registered for one course, you must contact Academic Records at 724-738-2010 or email academic.records@sru.edu no later than 4:00pm, Thursday, December 21, 2017, and a staff member will drop you from your class. You may add classes on MySRU until midnight, December 21, 2017, or by contacting the Office of Academic Records by 4:00pm on this date.  Students who are registered for one course and wish to drop it and add another should add the new course before dropping the undesired course.  

The final drop date for a 100% refund of Winter Session tuition will be December 21, 2017. Students who have not officially withdrawn by that date should follow the refund schedule below:  

  • Dec. 20, 21:  100%
  • Dec. 22:  80%

The final day to withdraw from a course with a grade of "W" is January 5. Students must notify their professor via SRU email of their intention to withdraw. The professor, in turn, must then email the Academic Records Office at academic.records@sru.edu, notifying Academic Records of the withdrawal, and identifying the student's last day of participation in class. This email must be received by Academic Records on or before the last date of withdrawal, January 5, 2018.

Credit/Completion Information

Students will be limited to no more than 7 credits unless an Excess Hours Form [link to file Excess_Hours.pdf] is approved by the student's advisor, chairperson and dean.

Grades will be due at noon January 18, 2018 and should be available on MySRU by January 19, 2018.  Academic status will be determined before the start of spring classes on January 22, 2018.

There is no Dean's List in Winter Session. Undergraduate students in good academic standing prior to attending Winter Session will be placed on academic warning or probation if their cumulative GPA falls below a 2.00. They will not be suspended or dismissed. Undergraduate students who were on academic warning or probation prior to attending Winter Session will not be suspended or dismissed based on Winter Session academic performance.  Students who do well during Winter Session may have their academic warning or probation removed.

Graduate students in good academic standing prior to attending Winter Session will be placed on probation or suspension if their cumulative GPA falls below a 3.00.

Students finishing Winter Session will graduate in January, and may walk through the December ceremony if they wish.
