Academic Policies & Regulations 2014
Petition for Exception to University Policy
Administrative Withdrawal / Drop Policy
- The Administrative Withdraw policy is not in effect in the Summer as it is during the regular school year. Students who are officially enrolled in a class and fail to attend the first and any subsequent class meetings will remain enrolled in the class, and be responsible for paying all tuition and fees associated with the class.
- It is the student’s responsibility to drop a course if s/he is unable to attend due to changes in the class schedule or personal obligations.
- Non-attendance does NOT relieve a student of the obligation to pay tuition and fees. In addition to paying full tuition and fees, an academic hold will be placed on the student’s account to prevent any further registration transactions.
- Students who do not formally drop a class for which they are officially enrolled will receive an “F” grade for the course(s), and be liable for all tuition and fees incurred during the Summer.
- Students must formally drop a course via eCampus or by submitting a Drop Form to the Enrollment Services Center located in the Schott Administration building prior to the published deadlines.
Degree-seeking students may audit one course in addition to the Summer Session course load limit on a space available basis with a charge of $100 course audit fee. Permission to audit is given by the instructor by the last day to add a class. Submit completed audit forms to the Enrollment Services Center by the last day to add a class and no later than one week thereafter.
Non-SCU or non-degree seeking SCU students may not audit courses.
Course Load Limits Policy / Overload Policy
There are NO EXCEPTIONS TO THE COURSE LOAD POLICY for the Summer Session. Students who register for more than the maximum course load will be administratively withdrawn from the course that creates the overload. Students who add overload units in violation of this policy may not receive credit for the course that causes the policy violation.
The intensive pace of Sessions 1, 2, and 3 require the following restrictions on summer course loads:
- Session 1: Students may not enroll in or attend more than two courses at any time during this session.
- Session 2: Students may not enroll in or attend more than two courses at any time during this session.
- Session 3 (A, B and C): Students may not enroll in or attend more than one Session 3 lab science (Chemistry or Physics) course at a time. If you are enrolled in or attending a Session 3 lab science course, you may not be simultaneously enrolled in or attending any Session 1, 2, or 4 course. If you are enrolled in or attending a Session 3 non-lab science course, you may be simultaneously enrolled in or attend no more than one Session 1, 2, or 4 course
Session 4: You may carry up to 15 units in Session 4 courses (note: this does not apply if you are also registered for Session 1, 2, or 3 courses.)
Session 5: Contact the International Programs office at 408-554-6940 for course load restrictions.

Enrollment and Course Restriction Policy
- Students may not sit in classes without formally enrolling. Credit is not given to students who attend class without formally enrolling and paying tuition. Students must be officially registered in classes based on the procedures outlined in the Summer Session website and must have paid all tuition and fees by the published deadlines.
- The instructor's signature on an add form after the add period does not constitute a formal enrollment without tuition payment. Initial registration or class additions will not be accepted beyond the late registration/add period as set forth in the Summer Session calendar.
- Students who enroll in a course for which they are not eligible are subject to administrative withdrawal from that course. During the first week of class, the instructor may notify the Registrar to drop you from the course if you did not fulfill the following course restriction requirements. This includes:
- Freshmen enrolled in upper division courses.
- Students who have not satisfied any course prerequisites stated in the Undergraduate bulletin.
- Students who have not obtained the instructor’s permission as specified in certain courses.
