Advance Schedule Drop

Responsible Department
Enrollment Management
Effective Date

  1. .

    Policy Purpose

    The purpose of this policy is to provide a mechanism by which the University of North Georgia (the “University”) may drop a student from a class schedule created prior to orientation when a student does not attend their scheduled orientation date or course.

  2. .

    Definitions

    1. Advance Schedule Process:  The advance schedule process is the process through which professional staff create student schedules prior to students completing the orientation requirement or through which students are allowed to self-register prior to completing the orientation requirement.

    2. Orientation Requirement:  All incoming degree-seeking undergraduate students are required to complete an orientation course and/or in-person session prior to matriculation. Reservations are made through the orientation reservation system, currently in Banner, or by enrolling directly into an orientation course.

    3. Admissions Cancellation Process: If a student decides to not attend the University of North Georgia, the student must contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and request that the student’s enrollment be terminated. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions will then cancel the student’s enrollment. Through this cancellation with the Banner system, the student’s schedule is officially removed.
  3. .

    Policy Statement

    1. All incoming degree-seeking undergraduate students are required to complete an orientation course and/or in-person session prior to matriculation.

    2. Failure to complete the Orientation Requirement will result in a cancellation of any schedule created by the Advance Schedule Process.

    3. Students must notify Orientation and Transition Programs of an extenuating circumstance prior to the session or course cancellation date.

    4. Exemptions to this policy are reviewed on a case-by-case basis when students provide evidence of an extenuating circumstance prior to the cancellation date.

    5. Students who officially cancel their acceptance to the University automatically have their schedule dropped through the Admissions Cancellation Process.

    6. Students who choose not to attend the University and orientation and who do not officially cancel their acceptance to the University after participating in the Advance Schedule Process can be held responsible for tuition and are subject to receiving W grades.
  4. .

    Support Information

    1. Students who cancel their enrollment often have high-demand classes and those classes are needed by other students. The University often does not receive these cancellation requests until after the student has missed their orientation session.

    2. Completing the Orientation Requirement solidifies the student’s commitment to attending the University.

    3. The orientation program is designed to introduce students to the University by providing information on student services, resources and policies, and to provide foundational information for beginning their academic plan of study.

    4. Orientation allows for students to create community connections to their peers as well as university faculty and staff.

    5. The University provides multiple orientation dates and format options for each term.
  5. .

    Any related operating procedures must comply with and should reference this policy.
