ADD / DROP POLICY
CHANGING PROGRAMS OR CONCENTRATIONS
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 is a Federal law designed to protect the privacy of a student’s education records. This federal law, known as the Buckley Amendment, was enacted to establish procedures for disclosing information contained in student records, to insure the privacy of these records for the student, to establish the rights of students to inspect their educational records and to provide guidelines for the correction of inaccurate data through informal and formal hearings. Davis College is in compliance with the FERPA guidelines.
Students may request approval to complete a course through independent study by completing and submitting the appropriate form.
LIFE EXPERIENCE CREDIT
Realizing that some students will apply to Davis College after they have had many years of experience in the work force and/or Christian ministry, it is the College’s desire to reward that accomplishment with college credit for this life experience. In accordance, the following guidelines must be adhered to in order to maintain appropriate accountability.
OFFICIAL WITHDRAWAL POLICY
Students who find it necessary to withdraw from school (all classes) must complete an official withdrawal form. Forms may be acquired from the Office of Academic Affairs. Failure to officially withdraw will result in a loss of any financial rebate, plus failure of all courses for that semester. Students may officially withdraw after registration has been finalized. This must be done by completing and submitting the form below. The date of the withdrawal is the date that the official form, complete with required signatures, is returned to the Office of Academic Affairs. Failure to attend class does not exempt students from tuition charges, and reimbursements will be based on the official withdrawal date on the form according to the schedule found under “Refund Policy” in the “Finances and Student Accounts” section of the Davis College Catalog.
REQUEST FOR INCOMPLETE
Requests for extension of courses (a request for an “Incomplete”) will be considered on a case by case basis. The form below must be completed and submitted to the Office of the Registrar. If approval is granted, students will be assessed a surcharge for each course involved.
STUDENT MINISTRY FORM
Complete this form to receive Student Ministry Credit. Please complete one form for each student ministry in which you were involved.
