Academic Policies and Procedures

Pass/No Pass

  • One course may be taken as a Pass/No Pass per semester. The course may not be a prerequisite to any other course in that student’s program of study and may not be a requirement for that student’s program of study. The course taken for Pass/No Pass earns a Pass, and will provide credits which count towards graduation, but will not be computed in the Grade Point Average.
  • Once the Pass/No pass status is registered for a course, it cannot be undone or changed. The Pass/No pass status may not be applied retrospectively.
  • EN-105, EN-106, QR-101/QR-101A, and RC-101 may not be taken for Pass/No Pass.

Course Withdrawal

  • Undergraduate students may withdraw from a maximum of 4 courses in their entire academic career at Regis. Withdrawals that cause a student to fall into or below the “Part-Time” status may affect residency on campus, financial aid, and athletic eligibility. Students planning to withdraw from any course should contact their faculty advisor.
  • Course Withdrawal forms must be completed before the published deadline, and returned to the Center for Student Services to be finalized.
  • “Course Withdrawal” is not the same as a “Withdrawal from Regis”.

Leave of Absence and College Withdrawal

  • Students who plan to take a Leave of Absence or to withdraw from Regis should review the Regis Withdrawal page, and must meet with the Director of Academic Advising.
  • “Withdrawal from Regis” is not the same as a “Course Withdrawal”.

Add/Drop Period

  • Courses adjustments for current semesters are only available during the published “Add/Drop Period” indicated on the Academic Calendar.
  • Students wishing to add or drop a course must meet with their faculty advisor prior to the Add/Drop period deadline to get the faculty advisor’s signature of approval.
  • Please note that students taking more than 19 credits will be charged a tuition penalty. Dropping courses that would alter the status of a student from full-time to part-time status may impact financial aid, residency on campus and athletic eligibility.


  • Students may request an incomplete in a course due to extenuating circumstances that may prevent them from completing all required academic work by the end of a semester. Requests must be made to the faculty member of the course by the deadline, and in accordance with the policy, that is outlined in the Academic Calendar.

Registering for Courses
