Adding, Dropping, Repeating, or Auditing a Course

Adding a Course

Once registration for a semester begins, students can add courses online at my.laboure.edu until the first day of classes for that semester. During the adjustment period, students can add courses by contacting the Welcome Center. Once a course has begun, students must have the professor’s permission to enroll. Students cannot be added to a course after the class has met more than once.

Withdrawal from a Course

Students thinking about withdrawing from a course are encouraged to contact their Academic Advisor to discuss options. If the student would like to proceed with withdrawing from the course, it is the responsibility of the student to notify the Welcome Center of their intention to do so.

Any courses dropped during the Course Adjustment Period will not appear on the student transcript. Any course withdrawn after the Course Adjustment Period will earn a “W,” which will appear on the student transcript. The withdrawal deadline is published on the Academic Calendar.

It is not sufficient to simply stop attending the class, or to inform the professor of the intention to withdraw. Failure to withdraw formally, or withdrawing after the published deadline, will result in submission of a grade based on the coursework completed. Information regarding refunds for course withdrawal can be found in the Refund Policy.

Withdrawal from a Course: Division of Nursing Additional Information

A student will be dismissed from the nursing program if he or she is unsuccessful (less than 77% or withdraw while failing) in two science or nursing courses. This includes failure of the same science or nursing course twice and/or failure of two difference science or nursing courses. See Division of Nursing Student Handbook for additional information, available through the Division of Nursing.

Repeating a Course

Students are allowed to repeat a course once without permission. If a student seeks to repeat a course a second time, then he/she must complete the Repeat a Course Form located online at my.laboure.edu or at the Welcome Center. This form will include an explanation of the circumstances for the request. The decision to approve requests to repeat any course will be made by the Program Chair or the Academic Progression Review Committee. The Program Chair or the Academic Progression Review Committee will notify the Registrar's Office of any approvals made in order for the student to be enrolled in the course. Withdrawal from a course counts as an attempt. The outcome of the Academic Progression Review Committee is final. 

Repeating a Course: Division of Nursing Additional Information

Students are allowed to repeat a science or nursing course only once. Students may request to repeat a course a third time, due to extenuating circumstances. See extenuating circumstance policy in the Division of Nursing Student Handbook, available through the Division of Nursing. Any student who is not approved to repeat a course by the Academic Progression Review Committee or who does not achieve a passing grade in any subsequent science or nursing course will be dismissed from the nursing program. The outcome of the Academic Progression Review Committee is final. 

Auditing a Course

Students may audit a course on a space-available basis. There is a reduced fee for auditing. Students will need permission of the Vice President of Academic Affairs, the Program Chairperson, and the professor to audit a course. Credit is not awarded for audited courses. Changing from audit to credit must be accomplished with the first six hours of the course. Full tuition will then be charged.
