My company will only re-imburse my course fees if I earn a grade of B or better. If I am registered as a non-degree student, my computer transcript may only show a P (for pass). How can I assure my company that I earned at least a B?
Yes, there are. There is a window of just one week. Students should make sure that they drop or add 1.5 credit hour courses within the specified times so that they are not penalized academically or financially.
A 1.5 credit course is a half-semester course lasting for approximately 7 weeks. The 1.5 credit course may be offered as a stand-alone course or paired with another half-semester (1.5 credit) course so that a full semester (3 credit) course results from taking two 1.5 credit courses. An example of the latter is TCOM 501 and TCOM 502, which are offered one after the other in the same semester.
It is always recommended that you register for both 1.5 credit courses at the beginning of the semester. Delaying your registration for the second course until the middle of the semester may cause difficulties if the second course has filled up.
