Notice to Undergraduate Students
ISSUES TO CONSIDER BEFORE WITHDRAWING FROM A CLASS
Issues Related to Full-time Status –
A student must maintain 12 credits to be considered full-time. This includes remedial courses (those numbered below 100) and
courses you are repeating. If you fall below full-time at any point in the semester, it may affect the following:
• Health insurance coverage, if you are covered under your parents’ plan
• Athletic eligibility (check both the enrollment requirements for this semester and the credits needed for the whole year)
• Veteran’s benefits
• Eligibility for a dean’s list
• Financial aid (Please refer to Blugold Central web site for more information on Financial Aid)
o Your financial aid will be based on your enrolled credits at the end of the add/drop-no record period for full-semester classes. If you
withdraw from a class with a “W” after that date, your financial aid will not be decreased. Likewise, if you add credits after that date, your
financial aid will not be increased.
o To maintain “Satisfactory Progress” for financial aid purposes, you must complete 67% of your total enrolled credits.
o For continued deferment of loan repayment, you need only to be enrolled half-time (6 credits).
o However, scholarships may have other requirements.
• International Students on J or F visas must have permission from the Center for International Education (Schofield 3) before
dropping below 12 credits.
What will not happen…
• You will not be evicted from the residence halls.
• Being less than full-time in itself will not affect your academic standing.
To remain in good academic standing, a student must:
a) achieve a semester G.P.A. of 2.0 or higher
b) achieve a resident G.P.A. of 2.0 or higher;
Repeating Courses -
A course in which a grade of C- or below or a W was originally earned may be repeated once. Please note:
• The new grade will replace the previous grade in computing GPAs, but both grades will appear on your official transcript.
• Typically, financial aid is not available to cover the costs of a course repeated for a third time.
