Veterans Biola University is approved as a de­ gree-granting institution for the attendance of veterans under Title 38, United States Code. This includes the programs covered in chapters 31, 34 and 35 of Title 38, relat­ ing also to the educati on of disabled veter­ ans and war orphans. The California De­ partment of Veterans Affairs has also au­ thorized the university for the attendance of veterans and veterans' dependents. Veterans or dependents of veterans who plan to enroll in the university are urged to contact the veterans ' secretary in the office of admissions and records well in advance of registration so that the neces­ sary arrangements may be made with the Veterans Administration or the California Department of Veterans Affairs. Registration All students are to register in person during scheduled registration days. Late registration will continue through the eighth day of classes. A late registration fee of $25 will be charged those who fail to register during the scheduled registration days. Registration is not complete until sat­ isfactory financial arrangements have been made. Students will receive credit for only those courses in which they are offi cially enrolled in the office of admissions and records. Registration is mandatory for Rosemead students in all phases of the program including students in internship and those who have completed all re­ quirements except the dissertation. Change of Registration A student who finds it necessary to drop or add a class must obtain from the office of admissions and records the prop­ er form for such a procedure. A student who drops a course without fulfilli ng this requirement will receive a "UW" in the subject. A charge of $2 is made for each class change transaction. Addition of classes may be made during the first two weeks of the semester. After that date courses cannot be added unless approved by the director of records .

Grades (Rosemead students should see Rosemead section of the catalog for fur­ ther grade information.) Quality of course work is graded on the following scale, with a system of grade points used to determine a student's gen­ eral grade-point average or standing: Grade: Quality: Grade Points: A 4.00 A- Excellent 3.67 B+ 3.33 B Good 3.00 B- 2.67 c+ 2.33 C Satisfactory 2.00 C- Unsatisfactory 1.67 D+ 1.33 D 1.00 D- O.~ F Failure 0.00 A "W" indicates an official withdrawal from a course and does not affect the stu­ dent's grade point average. A "UW" indicates an unofficial with­ drawal. Students who register but do not attend classes are automatically given the grade of "UW" which will influence the grade point average the same as an F. A temporary mark of "RD" (report de­ layed) will be issued in special cases where an extension is warranted and approved by the dean of student affairs office, (un­ dergraduate students), and the vice presi­ dent, university student affairs, (graduate students.) The grade point average of a student is obtained by dividing the total number of units attempted at Biola University into the total number of grade points obtained at Biola. To graduate, a student must have at least twice as many grade points as units in total credit value of all courses undertaken by him and a 2.00 grade point average in the major field. A student will be permitted to repeat a course in which he has received either an F or D grade. Students may repeat courses in which they have earned a C or B, but

must confer with the dean, University ad­ missions and records or the director of records. When a course is repeated the grades processor in the admissions and records office must be notified. The better grade will be the only one used in comput­ ing the cumulative grade point average at Biola University. The units will be counted only once. Grade reports will be issued to students from the office of admissions and records. Grade Changes It is the student's responsibility to bring any error in grades to the attention of the instructor within one semester following the issued grade. Grade changes are only allowable for computational or recording errors and must be corrected no later than the last day of classes of the next full term semes­ ter. Auditors Students wishing to audit courses must pursue normal application and registration procedures. Undergraduate students can not register for a course until the second week of the semester. (See financial infor­ mation for fees.) Talbot students must be college graduates and must pay the same fees as those taking courses for credit. Auditors must receive permission from the instructors of the courses to be audit­ ed. Pre-Registration Pre-registration for the fall semester is held during the month of May, and for the spring semester in late November and early December. All students are required to pre-register if they plan to return to school the next semester. Failure to pre­ register will mean filing an application for re-admission ($25 fee) if t he individual plans to enroll for the next semester. Academic Load The minimum full-time load is 12 units at the undergraduate level. A student who is on academic probation may be limited to 12 units or less depending upon his

Courses may be dropped without penalty during the first 12 weeks of classes. If a course is dropped during the first eight weeks of classes, it will not be re­ corded on the student's permanent record. Courses dropped between the ninth and twelfth week of classes will have a grade of "W" recorded. Withdrawal A student who officially withdraws from the university during a semester will re­ ceive a grade of "W" in all courses if with­ drawal is no later than the end of the 12th week of class. Otherwise, a grade of "UW" or "F" will be given. A course which is dropped by a Talbot student doing passing work results in a grade of "W," but for a course dropped while one is not doing passing work a grade of "F" will be record ­ ed. A student who withdraws may be granted honorable dismissal provided that he has met all his financial obligations to the university, has secured a withdrawal card from the office of admissions and records and completed all forms for withdrawal and is in good standing at the time. A student who withdraws unofficially, that is, he has not completed the proper forms supplied by the director of records, will not receive a refund of any portion of his tuition or fees and will receive a grade of "UW" in each cou rse. If he has no finan­ cial obligations to the university, a tran­ script of his work will be sent to another school upon request. Attendance Regular class attendance is expected of all students. Classes are conducted in a manner that will encourage academic ex­ cellence and the growth of Christian char­ acter. Because of the tremendous variety of class size and purpose, specific require­ ments in attendance, the final authority for attendance and any effect that it might have upon grades rests with the individual faculty member.
