and Graduation Requirements

REGISTRATION Students are to register in person during the scheduled registration days. Late registration will be allowed through the eighth day of class and requires a fee of $45.00. Registration is completed when students have paid the required tuition down payment. Students will receive credit for courses offi­ cially enrolled through the Office of the Registrar. Registration is mandatory for Rosemead students in all phases of the program including students in internship and those who have completed all requirements except the dissertation. CHANGE OF REGISTRATION Course registration changes are made by submitting an add/ drop form to the Registrar's office. The fee is $5.00 for each transaction. Courses may be added to the student's schedule during the first two weeks of the semester. Courses may be dropped until the end of the 12th week of the semester. A student who stops attending a class but does not submit an add/ drop form will not be dropped from the class and will receive a grade of Unofficial Withdrawal for the course. Courses dropped during the first eight weeks of the semester will not be recorded on the student's permanent record. Courses dropped between the ninth and the 12th week of the semester will be recorded with a grade ofW. WITHDRAWAL Official Withdrawal from enrollment to the University is made by submitting a completed Departure Card to the Reg­ istrar's Office. Students may officially withdraw until the end of the 12th week of the semester. Students who drop from enrollment at any time during the semester but do not sub­ mit a Departure Card, or withdraw from enrollment during the 13th through the 15th week of the semester, are consid­ ered Unofficially Withdrawn. Unofficially withdrawn stu­ dents will not receive a refund of any portion of tuition or fees and will receive grades of UW or Ffor their courses. STUDENT'S RECORDS Enrollees are advised that the university maintains school and student records for no longer than a five-year period beyond the student's final term of enrollment, with the exception of transcripts. ATTENDANCE Regular class attendance is expected of all students. Classes are conducted in a manner that will encourage acad­ emic excellence and the growth of Christian character. The final authority for attendance and any effect that it might have upon grades rests with the individual faculty member. This is due to the tremendous variety of class size and pur­ pose, and the specific requirements in attendance. GRADES Quality of course work is graded on the following scale, with a system of grade points used to determine a student's general grade point average or standing: Graduate students should see the appropriate section of the cata­ wgforfurther grade information.

Unofficial Withdrawal 0.00 Bio/a 's policy requires that when computing the GPA, the GPA is recorded at the third decimal point without rounding up. The following grades are also used with special significance in certain programs and afe not used in computing the GPA: CR Credit 1 0.00 NC No Credit 2 s Satisfactory 1 0.00 us Unsatisfactory3 0.00 R Research 2 0.00 IP Internship in Progress2 0.00 w WithdrawaJ3 AUD Audit 3 0.00 NR Not reported by faculty3 I No grade poinLS/ Credit given 2 No grade poinl.S 3 No grade poinLS/ No credit given Special Notations on Course Titles CPL Credit for Prior Leaming PTT Professional and Technical Training The two notations above apply to the BOLD program. SLC Service Learning Contract This type of course involves the student in a ministry off campus in the community. Acredit "CR" indicates the completion of course work with academic performance equal to or higher than the "satisfac­ tory" standard for the degree program (normally "C" 2.00 for undergraduate programs and "B" 3.00 for graduate programs.) A "W" indicates an official withdrawal from a course and does not affect the student's grade point average. A "UW" indicates an unofficial withdrawal. Students who register for courses but do not attend classes are given the grade of "UW"which will influence the GPA the same as an "F." A temporary mark of "RD" (report delayed) will be issued in special cases when approved by the dean of school of arts and sciences (undergraduate students) and the deans of the respective schools (graduate students). The grade point average of a student is obtained by divid­ ing the total number of units attempted at Biola University into the total number of grade points obtained at Biola. ( This calculation does not include courses transferred from another institution and starts anew for graduate programs.)
