Q. What is the Drop/Add Policy?
A. A course may be dropped within the first two weeks of the semester with no record of the course appearing on the transcript. A course may be added during the same time period.
Q. What does it mean to withdraw from a course?
A. Withdrawing from a course is similar to dropping a course because the student is no longer enroled in the course. Withdrawing may be done during weeks three through nine for fall and spring semesters, but only during weeks three and four for courses taking during the summer sessions. A student may only withdraw five times during the undergraduate career at Temple University. If a student chooses to repeat a course that they have previously withdrawn from, they cannot withdraw from the course again.
Q. Can I repeat a course?
A. A course can be repeated to earn a higher grade in that course. A student wishing to repeat a course must consult with their advisor. When calculating the GPA, the lowest grade for the course is ignored while all other grades are accounted for in the GPA. Credit for a repeated course will only be granted once.
Q. What qualifies a student for the Dean’s List?
A. Dean’s List eligibility is determined by the semester grade point average (GPA) corresponding to cut-off points that will yield the top 16% of GPAs based on the five previous fall and spring semesters for each school or college. Students must have 12 graded credits (A to F grades) in order to be eligible for dean’s list for the fall or the spring semesters.
Q. Who do I speak to if I am struggling with a class?
A. If you are struggling with a class, you should speak to the Professor and your Advisor. If it is a class within the College of Engineering, you can receive tutoring for FREE by speaking to Tamika Butler in the Office of Undergraduate Studies.
Q. How can I contact my professors?
