Guskey Education leaders must recognize obstacles to grading reform that are rooted in tradition—and then meet them head on.
Registration in courses is open only to those persons formally admitted to the University by the appropriate admitting office and to continuing students in good standing.
Students may not register concurrently in this University and another institution without the prior permission of the advising office of the school in which they are registered in this University. With the exception of students enrolled in a joint degree program, registration in more than one school of the University requires the written permission of the student advising offices concerned, prior to registration.
Registration is not complete until all financial obligations have been met.
Individuals without a valid registration may not attend class or earn any course credit. A student who is suspended or whose record is encumbered for any reason is not eligible to register. Registration in a given course may be denied to non-degree students by the Office of Non-Degree Students when space is needed for degree candidates.
New Student—Upon receipt of a letter of admission and payment of any required deposit, new students are eligible for registration on the stated days of registration. Registration for new freshmen is typically conducted on stated days as part of the Colonial Inauguration orientation program.
Readmitted Student—A student previously registered in the University who was not registered for courses or continuous enrollment, or on an approved leave of absence, during the preceding semester must apply for and be granted readmission by the appropriate admitting office before being eligible for registration.
Continuing Student—A student registered on campus in the immediately preceding semester or the summer session preceding the fall semester is eligible to register assuming good standing and enrollment in a continuing program.
Completion of Registration Students who register for courses in any semester or session incur a financial obligation to the University. Registration is not complete until all financial obligations have been fulfilled.
Students may be de-registered for non-payment, but failure to drop registration, or to attend classes, does not exempt students from their financial obligation.
Registration for Consortium Courses Degree students interested in taking courses at any of the other institutions in the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area, Inc. In order to participate in the Consortium program, students must obtain the approval of an advisor and should ascertain from the department of the institution where the course is taught whether they are eligible for the course and whether there is space in the course.
Specific inquiries should be addressed to the Office of the Registrar. Adding, Dropping, and Withdrawing from Courses During the registration period and before the end of the second week of classes, students may add or drop courses using the GWeb Information System.
Adding a course after the second week of classes requires the signature of the instructor or other authorized member of the department.
After the fourth week of classes, students who wish to add a course must complete a Registration Transaction Form RTF and submit it to their advising office. Adding a course after the fourth week of classes continues to require the signature of the instructor or other authorized member of the department.
For undergraduate students in the School of Medicine and Health Sciences and School of Nursing the deadline for withdrawing from a course is the end of the tenth week of classes in the fall or spring semester in which the student is enrolled in the course.
After the fourth week of classes but before the end of the tenth week, a student who wishes to withdraw from any or all of their courses must submit a petition, along with substantial supporting documentation, to their advising office for consideration.
Submission of a petition does not guarantee approval. Undergraduate students in Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, Elliott School of International Affairs, GW School of Business, Milken Institute School of Public Health, and School of Engineering and Applied Science may withdraw from any or all undergraduate courses in those schools through the last day of classes in the fall or spring semester in which the student is enrolled in the course.
In order to withdraw from a course after the tenth week of classes, the student must submit a Registration Transaction Form RTF to their advising office, but no supporting documentation is required.
The advising office will process the RTF unless dropping the course would result in the student taking fewer credits than they are required to take.
A course from which a student successfully withdraws will be assigned a notation of W Authorized Withdrawal. Failure to withdraw by the stated deadlines can result in an extended financial obligation and the recording of a grade of F Failure or a notation of Z Unauthorized Withdrawal.
All charges for courses that the student drops are subject to the refund policy listed under Fees and Financial Regulations in this Bulletin. Changes in Program of Study Changes Within a School—A student may not substitute one course for another within an established program of study or change status from credit to audit or from audit to credit without the approval of the advising office of the school in which he or she is registered.
Change from one major field to another within the same school may be made with the approval of the advising office. Undergraduate Transfer Within the University— Students are admitted to a home school at the time of their admission to the University.
Those who wish to change their home school must submit an internal transfer request to the Office of the Registrar. A university-wide graduation requirement is that students must be registered in the school in which their primary major is housed.
Some schools may require that certain prerequisite courses have been taken and that minimum grades have been earned before the transfer is processed.Betsy DeVos is chairman of the American Federation for Children, she is a national leader in the fight to boldly reform America’s broken education system.
Education leaders must recognize obstacles to grading reform that are rooted in tradition—and then meet them head on. Education improvement efforts over the past two decades have focused primarily on articulating standards for student learning, refining the way we assess students' proficiency on.
