Academic Policies

Please review the informatioh in the Academic Catalogs. Important information that may be of interest to Winter Session students is outlined or excerpted below.

Overrides: Overrides are available from the Chair of the department offering the course. If you are a regular Morgan student and need assistance contacting the Chair, please refer to the online list of academic programs, the online faculty directory, or email us for assistance. If you are a visiting student, please contact the Office of Summer Session, Winter Session & Special Programs directly for assistance.

Credit Limits: Students may register for no more than two (2) courses or eight (8) credits during the Minimester. The catalog does not allow for an exception to this policy.

Billing and Withdrawal or Cancellation: If you have registered for a course and no longer wish to attend that course, you must drop the course prior to the end of the schedule adjustment period (also known as the "add/drop period") in order to avoid tuition and fees charges. Please familiarize yourself with Morgan State University's academic policies related to withdrawal as published in the Undergraduate Catalog. In particular, note that: Students are advised that discontinued attendance does not constitute dropping or withdrawing from a class. Failure to report for any class that appears on students' schedules may result in a grade of "NA" or "F". In either case, the financial charges apply.

Exception to Enrollment Policies: If you have missed the deadline for withdrawal or cancellation and you wish to withdraw from or cancel a course, you must contact the Office to the Registrar using their "Exception to Enrollment Policy Appeal Form" (available at this link) to petition for an exception to policy. This process is not managed by the Office of Summer Session, Winter Session and Special Programs. Therefore, queries about this process must be directed to

Reinstatement: If your courses have been dropped due to non-payment, you must settle your bill with the Bursar and then request reinstatement by the announced deadlines for reinstatement. The Office of Summer & Winter Session does not permit partial reinstatements under any circumstances. Requests for reinstatement in after the term has ended will not be considered.

Course Cancellation: Note that courses that do not meet enrollment minimums may be subject to cancellation.
