Academic Regulations & Procedures
Winter Break Credit
Because of the extended winter break period, it is feasible to pursue some studies for up to six credits in ways similar to summer studies. Among these options are Independent Study and Directed Reading (associated with a subsequent course). (Career Exploration programs receive no credit.) There is a charge for all but Directed Reading. To register for these credit options, forms must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar by the end of the fall examination period. In all cases, the two-week period for drop/add shall begin with the last day of the fall examination period. Winter break credits may not be dropped or opted S/Cr/NC after 5:00 p.m. on the third Friday following the last day of the fall examination period. Winter break field trips are attached to winter term courses that may not be dropped without ASC approval. Students must be fully registered for winter term, including the field trip related course, prior to leaving on a winter break field trip. Other rules concerning drop/add and S/Cr/NC will apply to winter break credit. Winter break independent study work must be completed and submitted no later than the first day of winter term.
