Report of Grades
Student grades are available only on the web (OPUS) for password-protected viewing.
During the first five days of classes, a student (with his or her adviser’s approval) may drop, add, and swap classes. During this period, classes dropped will not appear on the student’s transcript.
Students may not drop English 184, English 185, English 186, Math 100C, and, during freshman year, Physical Education courses. All other courses may be dropped with no academic penalty during the first six full weeks of classes of the semester after the drop-add period providing that the student continues to carry a load of 12 credit hours or is in his/her final semester of residence at Oxford College with approval of the student’s academic adviser. Drops by merit scholars also require the approval of the director of academic services. After the drop-add period ends (first five days of classes), a W is given for the course dropped.
Students who drop a course after the end of the first six weeks for medical reasons, corroborated by appropriate documentation, are assigned a W for the course dropped. The associate dean of academic affairs may, for compelling academic reasons and with the recommendation of the student’s course instructor and academic adviser, grant a W for a course dropped between the end of the six week and the last day of classes. In all other cases, course drops made after the first six weeks will be assigned a WF unless the student withdraws from the college (see “Cancellation and Withdrawal”). A student who has been accused of an Honor Code violation may not withdraw from the course. There is no tuition refund for a dropped course except in cases of withdrawal from the college before the end of the sixth week of class.
One Time Freshmen Drop
In addition, students will be allowed one voluntary withdrawal from a course after the sixth week withdrawal deadline and until the end of the tenth week of classes during their two semesters of full time residency at Oxford College, provided that they maintain a 12 credit hour course load. An eligible student must complete a withdrawal form and follow the appropriate procedure as outlined above. This voluntary withdrawal policy applies to first year students and transfer students and applies to any courses including: English 184, English 185, English 186, Math 100C, and Physical Education. This policy does not apply to students who are on study abroad programs.
