Grade replacement

A student who wishes to replace a grade must adhere to the following policies and procedures:

  1. Students must follow all policies regarding the repetition of coursework.
  2. Some courses may be taken more than once for full credit (e.g., some special topics courses, independent studies, and internships); these courses are not eligible for grade replacement.
  3. The semester hours and quality points in repeated courses are counted only once. The highest grade and its corresponding quality points are used to compute the quality point average and meet graduation requirements.
  4. Students can replace a maximum of 3 classes up to 12 credit hours ("cumulative replacement hours") with improved grades earned by repeating courses.
  5. The credit hours associated with each repeated course will count toward the cumulative replacement hours.
  6. Students must complete a Grade Replacement form to initiate the grade replacement process. The form designating specific course grade replacements will be a part of the student's permanent file.
  7. All grade entries remain a part of the student's permanent record.
Leaving or taking a break from FLC

Register for a waitlist
  1. Log in to WebOPUS
  2. Search for the class you want to add.
  3. In your registration screen, under the "Action" column, select "Waitlist" and hit Submit.
  4. If you get a seat in the class, you may register for the course in two ways: 
    1. Register by the deadline in the email notification you received. 
    2. The Registrar's Office can add you to the class manually. 
  5. If you decide you do not want to take this class, remove yourself from the Waitlist with the Action Column or delete yourself from the class once you have registered

You cannot register for a Waitlist if you have a time conflict with that course or already registered for a different section of the same course.

Registration Overrides for Students

Instructors can give Registration Overrides for your courses. An instructor override can allow a student to register for a course if:

  • They have not satisfied the prerequisites
  • The course requires instructor's permission
  • And/or if the student does not satisfy a class (first-year, sophomore, etc.) or there is a significant restriction

Starting the first week of the term, the override includes an Override for Capacity.

Talk with your instructor about overriding the registration. 

Run a Degree Audit

The degree audit system helps you keep track of your progress toward a degree. The audit is a snapshot of your academic history and includes all degree requirements, in-progress courses, transfer credits, and more.

  1. Log into WebOPUS
  2. Select "My Student Profile" menu
  3. Select the "My Degree Audit" link
  4. Select the "Open u.achieve Suite" link

Transferring credits with a Pass/No Pass grading scale

We understand colleges and universities nationwide deviated from their traditional grading schemes for all Spring 2020 - Fall 2021 courses, with many moving to a version of Pass/No Pass grading scale. To account for this, we accept any course with transferable course content for which the student earned a P grade, provided that P is equivalent to a grade of C- or higher.
