Academic Policies
Course Repeat: You will be charged an additional fee for courses that you attempt more than twice at any Texas public institution (includes drops with "W").
Excess Hours Fee: You will be charged an additional fee per credit hour if you exceed 30 hours in courses which do not apply to your degree requirements
6 Drop Policy: You will be charged an additional fee if you drop more than 6 courses during your undergraduate career without "good cause."
I - Incomplete
W - Withdrawn Passing
P - Course in Progress
CR - Credit
Dropping vs. Withdrawing
Dropping: Students can drop all but one hour of coursework to still be enrolled.

Withdrawing: Withdrawing is reducing your hours to zero for the current semester. It only affects the current semester, not any future semester for which you are enrolled. Students must reapply in order to return to Texas State.

Adding: Students who want to add a course must do so by the 12th class day
Academic Probation
At the end of a semester, if your Texas State GPA is below a 2.0, the university places you on Academic Probation. During this time, you may take a regular course load, but your Texas State GPA must be raised in order to remain at Texas State.
