Adding or Dropping Courses and Refunds

Courses may be added throughout the registration period only.  Students may withdraw from a class during the first three quarters of the class.  Withdrawal during this time will be recorded on the transcript as “WD”.  After three quarters of any class, withdrawals and “WD” grades are not allowed, and instructors assign letter grades.  Withdrawal dates can be found on the Institutional Calendar on EagleOnline.

To drop a course, a completed Add/Drop Form must be submitted to the Academic Records Office.  The Add/Drop Form can be found by accessing EagleOnline or by clicking HERE.

In order to be eligible to receive a 100% refund, courses must be dropped prior to five days after the start of the class.  If a course is dropped after the 100% full refund date, the student is responsible for 100% of tuition and fees.

Every school district has different policies in place concerning dual credit/dual enrollment.  Students should consult with their counselor or principal before dropping any State Tech courses to ensure that they will still be on track to graduate.

Student Responsibilities

Students should remember that they are enrolled at State Tech through the Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment Program and are considered undergraduate students at State Tech. As such, dual credit/dual enrollment students are expected to take personal responsibility for their education; these responsibilities include payment of fees, meeting deadlines, and observing the College’s rules and regulations found in the Student Handbook and College Catalog.

Grades, Transcripts, and Transferring

Upon completion of dual credit courses,  instructors will send an official grade sheet to the Academic Records Office, where it is entered into the State Tech system, using a standard 4.0 GPA scale.  The grade a student earned in a dual credit or dual enrollment course appears as part of the student’s permanent college record and cannot be dropped.  After the grades have been posted to the student’s transcripts, they will be available on EagleOnline.

Credit earned at State Tech through the Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment Program is transferable to other colleges and universities according to their respective transfer policies. Not all classes transfer to every college or university.  Students are encouraged to contact the Director of Admissions or Registrar at the college or university of their choice for questions regarding acceptance and transferability of credit courses.

To request a State Tech transcript for other institutions, students must complete a Transcript Request Form and submit it to the Academic Records Office.  A Transcript Request Form can be found by accessing EagleOnline or by clicking HERE.  Students who do not have their student ID number, should write  “unknown” on that line and fill in their social security number.  The State Tech Academic Records Office’s address and contact information is included on the form.  Transcripts are not issued to or for students who have financial obligations to the college until those obligations are paid in full.
