Guidelines for Registration
For the sake of class organization, students are classified as follows:
Full-time Enrolled students
Regularly enrolled students taking courses for credit at a minimum of 12 hours per term in regular progression toward the award of a degree or diploma.
Part-time Enrolled students
Regularly enrolled students taking courses for credit at less than 12 hours per term not necessarily in progression toward the award of a degree or diploma.
Part-time students desiring to earn a degree or diploma must complete their programme of study within eight or six years respectively from matriculation.
Pre-registration for courses in the following term is carried out two weeks before the last day of regularly scheduled classes. (See College Calendar)
Pre-registration forms must be collected from the Academic Office and completed by the student in consultation with their advisor, then submitted by the posted date.
Students are expected to register in person on the day and time specified in the College Calendar. After clearing payment at the Business Office (students must clear any balance of fees from the previous term and pay at least one third of the current term fee) students proceed to the Academic Office to confirm their class registrations before being permitted to sit in any classes.
Students arriving at the College after business hours on the posted registration date will be charged a daily accumulating late registration fee.
A grace period of one week is allowed for late registration. After one week is over, no one is allowed to register for that term.
Changes in Registration
Courses may be added within the first calendar week of scheduled classes, or dropped within the first two calendar weeks of scheduled classes without appearing on the student’s permanent record. (refer to the “Last Day to Add/Drop a Course” in the College Calendar)
Courses officially dropped after this date receive a WP (Withdrawal Passing) or WF (Withdrawal Failing) based on the student’s accrued course performance.
Change of registration forms (Add/Drop Forms) can be collected from the Academic Office any time from the opening of the term.
Students should fill in the form indicating which course or courses are to be added or dropped, insure the required signatures are obtained, then return the form to the Academic Office for processing prior to the posted deadline.
In no case will students be permitted to remain in a class in which they are not officially registered. Failure to attend a class in which a student remains registered will result in failure for the course.
Purpose and function
For faculty to review the student’s academic programme each term to ensure proper class registration and appropriate progress toward completion of the programme.
For faculty to encouragingly act in a consulting role in order to guide students in their selection of courses best suited for the fulfillment of their educational experience at Baraton College.
All students are assigned an academic advisor who meets personally with them during orientation and pre-registration days to assist in registration for upcoming term courses.
Changes in registration must be approved by the student’s faculty advisor.
Ongoing interaction with the advisor during the term is encouraged to provide opportunity for academic guidance and counseling.
Fulfillment of all academic programme requirements is the student’s responsibility.
Students are expected to carefully study the College Catalogue and curriculum to plan properly in order to fulfill all requirements for graduation in the allotted time.
Various factors such as academic probation, course failures, temporary withdrawal, or reduced term hours, will seriously jeopardize a student’s ability to fulfill the requirements according to schedule. The college is not responsible for a student’s on-time completion under such circumstances.
Students leaving the college without completing their programme
Every registered student is required to officially “deregister” from the college before leaving the programme. Failure to process deregistration through the office of the Academic Office may result in failing grades recorded for all classes the student is currently enrolled in.
The student who terminates their programme prior to graduation must collect an official “Clearance Form” from the Academic Office, obtain all the appropriate departmental signatures, and return it to the Academic Office in order to be cleared for deregistration.
Each department will report if there are any outstanding student liabilities. It is the student’s responsibility to care for such liabilities before leaving the school. If the liability remains unaccounted for, a letter will be sent to the student and sponsor notifying them of the outstanding fees and/or property liabilities. No academic records will be forwarded until such liabilities are cleared.
Students leaving the college upon completion of their programme
The student who intends to graduate must also collect an official “Clearance Form” from the Academic Office, obtain all the appropriate departmental signatures, and return it to the Academic Office in order to be cleared for graduation.
Each department will report if there are any outstanding student liabilities. It is the student’s responsibility to care for such liabilities before graduation. If the liability remains unaccounted for, a letter will be sent to the student and sponsor notifying them of the outstanding fees and/or property liabilities. No academic records will be forwarded until such liabilities are cleared.
Students temporarily suspending their programme of study
In the case of a student who fails to complete the current term of study, (e.g. lack of school fees, illness, etc.) the same procedural rules apply for obtaining and submitting the “Clearance Form” in order to be officially de-registered from the school for that term.
Students who are not currently registered for classes, but fail to return to enroll in their program of studies the following term (e.g. lack of school fees, illness, etc.) are encouraged to notify the Academic Office in writing of their intentions. In this way, any pre-registered courses can be officially dropped, while the student’s enrollment status is properly maintained for later continuation.
