Change of Curriculum
Unless informed otherwise, students are assigned the curriculum they
indicate on their Application for Admission. If a student desires a
curriculum change and has not enrolled yet, then the student should contact the Admissions and Records Office. If already enrolled, the student should contact Counseling Services.
To Obtain an Incomplete for a Course
If a student is unable to complete the requirements for a course during the allotted time period due to illness or other extreme circumstances, the student may request the instructor to assign a grade of “I” (Incomplete).
To receive this grade the student must have been maintaining a passing grade at the time the illness or extreme circumstance started, the instructor must agree that this is an appropriate grade in the specific circumstance, and the student and the instructor must complete a Request to Obtain an Incomplete form.
During the next regular term, excluding summer, the student will be given the opportunity to complete the requirements for the course. After the requirements have or have not been completed, the instructor will determine the grade the student earned (A,B,C,D,F, or P) and report it to the Admissions and Records Office by the mid-term date for that term. Any “I” grade remaining after the mid-term date will automatically be changed to an “F” grade. Students affected by this procedure should refer to the grade appeal section of the catalog.
No Grade Available
When a no grade available (“Y” grade) has been issued to a student, the instructor must report the grade to the Admissions and Records Office by the first instruction day of the next semester or term. Any “Y” grade remaining after the first day of instruction will automatically be changed to an “F” grade. Students affected by this procedure should refer to the grade appeal section of the catalog.
To Audit a Course
To audit a course the student must pay the same tuition and fees as if
the course were being taken for credit. The student must declare the intention to audit the course in writing on the proper form with the Admissions and Records Office at the time of registration for the class. A student may change from audit to credit status during the first five days of the semester.
Students may repeat courses not designated as repeatable taken at Lake Land College with the understanding that the last credit hours and grades earned will be computed in the student’s grade point average. (Courses designated as repeatable are marked with an ® in the course description chapter of this catalog.) The Admissions and Records Office must be notified by the student in writing on the proper
form of a repeated course before the repeat is noted on the transcript.
Because repeat course policies vary from college to college, students planning to transfer are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the policy of the college they will attend. Repeats will also be noted at the time the student applies for graduation.
