Academic Advising FAQs
Some things to think about when it comes to dropping/withdrawing:
- Will the withdraw impact your financial aid? Contact email@example.com if you are receiving A+, Financial Aid, grants, etc. to determine if withdrawing from your course(s) will affect your eligibility.
- How much of the course is yet to be graded? Do you feel that you can improve your grade in that time? (if that is why you are thinking of withdrawing).
- Have you reached out to your instructor to see if they have recommendations on how/if you can improve?
- Have you fully utilized the SCC resources available through SCC? (ACE Tutoring Center; NetTutor –online tutoring; etc.)
If after this time you still wish to drop/withdraw from your course(s), you can do so through your Student Planning or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tutorial on How to Drop a Course
Please complete the Change of Degree Form. Download the form, make the changes as appropriate for you, and then save the document as "Change of Degree <your last name>". Send the completed form back to email@example.com for processing.
Changing your degree could impact your financial aid as well as length of time toward graduation. If you would like to learn more you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or chat with an Academic Advisor (visit stchas.edu/advising to learn about options for chatting with an Academic Advisor). In Student Planning you may also select “View a New Program” to see the new degree requirements before moving forward with the Change of Degree form.
You may have taken the last seat in the course. If it says “Registered, but not started” or “Registered” then you are enrolled and have a seat in the course. If you do not see either of these, then your course is “Planned” but you are NOT ENROLLED in that course section.
You may use the placement tool on the Assessment Center website to get an idea of placements if you have recent High School GPA and ACT scores. Academic Advisors will assist students with course placement using multiple assessment measures without testing on campus.
You may request a transcript by accessing this link: National Student Clearinghouse. Phone or email requests will NOT be honored due to laws outlined in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
- All holds on your record must be cleared before transcripts will be released.
- Allow two working days for processing. Additional time may be required at the end of the semester.
- SCC does not release copies of transcripts from high schools or other institutions you have attended. You must contact the original institution to obtain these documents.
How does it work? Students who complete a 102 level foreign language course with a grade of at least 75% will receive 4 retroactive credits for the bypassed course of 101. Four credits will also be earned for the completed 102 course, for a total of 8 credits. If a student enters the foreign language sequence at the 201 or 202 level, then 8 retroactive credits will be awarded if 201 or 202 is completed with a grade of 75% or better. Four credits will also be earned for the completed 200 level course, for a total of 12 credits. Students are advised to follow the Foreign Language placement guidelines in the catalog course descriptions. Students who are unsure of their level should consult a counselor or a foreign language instructor.
Retroactive credit is NOT automatic! Students must apply for the appropriate credit. The necessary forms are available from the foreign language instructors, and are distributed in class during the beginning weeks of each semester. Students must complete intent forms for both the Foreign Language Program and the Office of Admissions and Registration, and return them to their instructors by the end of the fourth week of classes.
How is retroactive credit included into the student record? Upon receipt of the completed Student Application for Retroactive Credit, the Registrar will issue the credit as part of the student record. Retroactive credit will not be used in calculating the GPA, but will be included in the total hours required for general education and graduation.
Note: Students with sufficient previous language study are encouraged to enroll in a course beyond 101 in order to receive retroactive credit. Please be aware that if a grade of C- or below is earned in a higher-level course, retroactive credit will not be awarded. If the course you are in seems too difficult, discuss this with your instructor and possibly drop back to a lower level class during the add/drop period at the beginning of the semester.
