What happens if I repeat a course?

When you repeat a course your grade is replaced with the new grade you earned, as long as you improved.  If you had an E and earned a better grade, you will receive your three credits. If you had a D and earned a  better grade, you will not earn any more credits, as you have already earned the three credits.

How can I drop a class?

During the drop/add period, check the Registrar’s website for dates, you can log in to the MyClarion and use the Student Center tab to access the class registration area. Click the Enroll link. Once here, click the Drop link. Select the class or classes to drop and click Drop Selected Classes. Click Finish Dropping. The View Results page confirms the drop.

If the drop/add period has ended, you will need to withdraw from the course. Withdrawals can be done up until a certain date in the semester, usually about 10 weeks into the semester. Consult the Registrar’s website for this date. 

To withdraw, see your advisor or stop into the UASC office to pick up a form for withdrawal. Keep in mind, you are only allowed to withdraw from FIVE courses while you are at Clarion University.

What do I take next semester?

Your major will truly determine what courses you need to take for the next semester.  Stop by your advisor’s office, come in to UASC to pick up a checksheet for your major, or consult your degree audit found in your MyClarion account under your Academic Requirements. This will help you understand what courses you could take.  If you have more specific questions on what general electives to take, stop in UASC to make an appointment to discuss answers and direction on these choices.

How do I change my major or add a minor?

Prior to changing your major or adding a minor, you should seek advisement with your advisor or UASC.  You can obtain the Change of Status form online.  The Change of Status form should be submitted to the Dean's Office of the new major.  If you want to add a minor, you should submit the form to the Dean's Office of the new minor.  The Dean's Office staff will assign new advisors then distribute copies of the form to the proper offices.  The change should appear on your degree audit within a few weeks.
