How do I…

Drop/add courses?
Online Drop/Add is available the first week of classes through BannerWeb.  Students can access at any point during this first week. 

Withdraw from a course?
Students withdrawing from a course the beginning of the 4th week through the end of the 9th week of a semester will receive either a grade of WP(withdrew passing) or WF(withdrew failing). Neither grade is computed in the student′s grade point average. Withdrawing from a course does not affect a student′s enrollment status. Therefore, if a student is enrolled in 16 hours and withdraws from a 4 hour course, they would still be considered a full time student. Withdraw forms are available on the Rhodes Express Registrar Forms Page. Both the instructor’s and adviser’s signature are required.

Declare a major/minor?
Declaration of major and minor forms are available on the Rhodes Express Registrar Forms Page. Signatures of the previous adviser, current adviser and chair of the department are required. One copy of the declaration will be filed in the Registrar’s Office and another copy is filed with the department. The declaration of major form is due no later than the middle of the spring semester of the student’s sophomore year. Declaration of minor is due no later than the beginning of the fall semester of the senior year. See the Declaring a Major information sheet on the forms page. 

Request an academic transcript?

Change my address/name?
Change of address can now be performed by the student using BannerWeb.  If a name change is requested, see Rhodes Express.  Legal documentation is required, ie, social security card, birth certificate.

Request an Enrollment Verification or Acadmenic Standing?
Letters can be faxed, mailed, or picked up.

Change academic advisers?
If you are declaring your major, a separate form for change of adviser is not necessary.

Request transfer credit from another college?
Academic work transferred from another institution must have the work approved in advance by the appropriate academic department chairperson at Rhodes and by the Registrar.  See the college catalogue for further guidelines.

Petition for a course overload/underload?
Petition request are available on the Rhodes Express Forms Page. An overload petition is required when a student wishes to take more than 19 hours in a semester. An underload petition is required when a student wishes to take less than 12 hours in a semester.

Take a class pass/fail?
Pass/Fail forms are available on the Rhodes Express Registrar Forms Page. A student may enroll in a class on a pass-fail basis with the permission of the instructor. No more than one course per semester with a maximum of six courses total are permitted under this program. The pass-fail form with the instructor’s signature must be returned to the Registrar’s Office during the first three weeks of class in a semester. The Pass/Fail option may not be used in courses taken to satisfy general degree requirements or courses taken to satisfy major or minor requirements.  


What do I do if…

I missed the drop/add period?
In order to add a class after the drop/add period you must submit a Petition for Variance from Academic Regulations. In order to drop a class after the drop/add period you must submit a Request for Extended Drop. Once the Extended Drop period is over you will have to submit a Request to Withdraw from a class. These are available on the Registrar Forms Page.

I missed the withdraw period?
In order to withdraw from a class after the withdraw period you must submit a Petition for Late Withdrawal - Registrar Forms Page. These requests go before the Standards and Standing Committee and are not guaranteed approval.

I need to take an incomplete in a class?
In order to receive an incomplete grade in a class you must submit a Conditional Grade Report. Conditional Grade Reports can be found on the Rhodes Express Registrar Forms Page. Once the class is completed and a final grade is computed, the instructor must assign a final grade on the Conditional Grade Report which is kept on file in the Registrar’s Office. See the Academic Calendar for deadlines on removing conditional grades.
