Subject: [TACRAO] Listserv dropping a class

Good afternoon,

I wanted to survey this community regarding your processes to drop a course.  Currently, students must seek permission/approval from their instructor as part of the drop process.  Most instructors will approve the student's request to drop if it is not a case of academic integrity or cheating.  However, here recently, we've had a couple instructors deny the student's request to drop (not related to academic integrity or cheating), thus preventing the student from dropping the class.


*       Does your institution require instructor permission for a student to drop a course?
No


*       Does your institution prevent a student from dropping a class if the instructor denies the request and if it's not related to an academic integrity/cheating issue?
No
In the case of academic dishonesty, an instructor might tell a student that if the student drops the course to avoid a poor grade, then s/he will file a case with the Honor Council. The instructor can only award a poor grade whereas the Honor Council has a range of sanctions, many more impactful than one poor grade, including suspension (without any type of refund) and a Honor Violation transcript notation. The Honor Council cannot assign a final grade.

Any information you can provide on this topic would be greatly appreciated.  Feel free to reply directly to jboatright at tamut.edu<mailto:jboatright at tamut.edu>.

Thank you.
