Dropping a class after the drop deadline will result in a 'W' on the transcript and applicable tuition charges.
PLEASE NOTE: STUDENTS APPLYING FOR TRANSFER OF CREDIT FROM OTHER INSTITUTIONS
A STUDENT WISHING TO EARN CREDITS AT ANOTHER INSTITUTION MUST OBTAIN PERMISSION FROM THE REGISTRAR'S OFFICE IN ADVANCE OF TAKING THE COURSE. Following consultation with the Head of the Department, Director of the School and/or Associate Dean of University Studies if necessary, the Registrar's Office will make a determination concerning the course and its application toward a JMU degree.
Once enrolled in classes at JMU:
Students are responsible for providing a course description and/or course syllabus to the appropriate person when requesting approval for Transfer Credit. Decisions to allow students to transfer credit for a particular course will be based on a comparison of course objectives and content at JMU with those at the other institution. Special exceptions to this policy will be reviewed on an individual basis. Exceptions may include those students who wish to participate in Study Abroad programs or other special circumstances.
Things to Remember:
*Students enrolled at JMU will not be awarded transfer credit for course offerings in Cluster Four: The American Experience (GHIST 225 and GPOSC 225) due to the content and unique features of these courses.
