Course Withdrawal Policy

As the course is required of all new Juniata students during the first semester, students are not permitted to withdraw from the course at any time without permission from the IA Supervisor, their advisors, and the Office of Academic Support. As this course is a graduation requirement, such permission is granted only in rare cases (e.g. medical leave of absence), and in these cases, the student must register for the course in the next semester. Students who fail the course must repeat it in their next semester. 

 

Disabilities Policy

The Americans Disabilities Act mandates accessibility in all aspects of the learning environment.  If you have an identified disability and are in need of specific accommodations, please notify the Office of Academic Support Services in Founders Hall and discuss your needs with me at the beginning of the semester.
