Registration and Attendance

Registration and Advising

Registration for graduate students is open until one week prior to the first meeting day for a class. All students are registered by the Office of Graduate Programs. Students may view their schedule on the student portal (my.huntington.edu).

Although faculty and staff advisors attempt to provide the best available information, the students are ultimately responsible for course selection and construction of their program. It is the students’ responsibility to see that program requirements are met and that the courses for the intended area of concentration are taken in proper sequence.

Attendance Policy

Residential

Students are expected to attend all class sessions. Students should not absent themselves from class without clearance from their respective professors. Work missed by late entrance or absence must be completed to the satisfaction of the instructor. Instructors may decide to reduce a student's grade for repeated absences. By University policy, students who miss a third or more of class time fail the course. See the relevant student handbook for program-specific attendance policies.

Online

Due to the concentrated scheduling and the emphasis upon participatory learning, students are expected to be active online every week.

Students are expected to participate weekly in the online classroom. Failure to participate in the first week of a course will result in an automatic drop from the course.

Adding, Dropping and Withdrawing from a Residential Course

To add, drop, or withdraw from a course, students may do so by contacting the assistant for Graduate Programs.

Adding and Dropping a Residential Course

Students who withdraw from a course through the tenth week of the fall or spring semesters or the second week of summer semester (prorated for courses that do not follow the regular semester schedule and for special terms) receive a grade of W on their transcripts, but there is no impact on their GPA.
