Arts & Sciences Students taking Holt Classes
Sophomores, juniors, and seniors enrolled in the Arts and Sciences (A&S) Program are welcome to register for one undergraduate course per academic year in the Hamilton Holt School on a tuition-free basis, if approved by their academic advisor. Students interested in taking a Holt School course should contact the Office of Student Records.
Holt School courses generally have the same academic value as A&S courses. Grades earned are calculated as part of the student's grade point average. Students desiring to fulfill Arts and Sciences general education requirements through Holt School course work must obtain advance permission, in writing, from the Office of Student Records. Students who want a Holt School course to apply toward major requirements in Arts and Sciences must obtain advance permission, in writing, from the chair of their major program.
In an effort to ensure the availability of Holt School courses to the student population they were designed to serve, Arts and Sciences students are registered on a space-available basis. A maximum of five (5) Arts and Sciences students may register for any given course.
OVERRIDES AND WAITING LISTS
Instructor overrides into closed courses are not accepted in the Holt School. The Holt School utilizes a waiting list process to manage closed courses. Waiting lists are restricted to Holt School students. A&S students may not attend courses unless they have received notification that their registration request was approved and processed. Students who illegally attend courses for which they are not registered will not receive academic credit.
Students are held responsible for attendance and participation in courses. The Holt School does not automatically withdraw students who do not participate. It is the responsibility of the student to initiate registration changes or withdrawals on his/her own behalf. Published withdrawal policies will be enforced. Students will be held personally and academically responsible for attendance and participation in Holt School courses.
