Course Numbers

Generally, courses with letter prefixes apply toward degrees and certificates, and courses with 100 and 200 numbers are college transfer courses; those numbered 200 to 299 are considered sophomore-level courses. Be sure to check the degree requirements for the certificate or degree you are seeking to ensure that the course you are taking will be counted.
 
(Information based on the printed 2013-14 Academic Catalog)

Credits

Attendance

 

Blue Mountain Community College believes that it is the student’s obligation to attend and participate in classes and that there is a direct correlation between participative attendance in a course and successful completion. Individual courses may have their own attendance policies. The college has an administrative drop process for the first five days of class each term. The administrative drop process is not guaranteed. If you do not intend to continue in classes, you must not assume that you will be automatically dropped for non-attendance. To drop or withdraw from a course or courses, you must do so online by logging on to the Student WolfWeb. You will be responsible for
payment for all courses that you have not dropped as of the end of the 100% refund period.
 
See definition of drop and withdraw under “Dropping/ Withdrawing from Class” at this link.
 
Note: Some courses that are not a full term in length will have different refund periods. Please print your schedule to determine what the refund/drop period is for that course.

Auditing Classes

You may audit a course at a reduced tuition rate. If you register for a course online and wish to audit it, you must complete a paper Schedule Change form requesting the audit option. This status cannot be changed after the 100% refund period. Courses taken as an audit status do not count as credits attempted in financial aid award calculations, and the AU (audit) status does not count in calculating GPAs. The audit indicator AU indicates a registration status, not an evaluation.

Dropping/Withdrawing from Classes

Definitions:
Drop: When you remove a course from your schedule before the end of the 100% refund period for that course. If you drop a course from your schedule, it will not show up on your grade transcript. Note: Courses that are less than a full term in length have different refund periods. These dates are indicated on your schedule as “last date to drop and pay.”
 
Withdraw: When you remove a course from your schedule after the 100% refund period for that course. If you withdraw from a course, it will show up on your grade transcript with a status of W to indicate that you withdrew from that course. In addition, students are responsible for all tuition and fees associated with the course or courses they withdraw from. Note: Courses that are less than a full term in length have different withdrawal deadline dates.
 
To drop or withdraw from a course, log in to your student account on the Student Wolfweb from BMCC’s Website. If you are having problems online contact our Service Center at 541-278-5759.
 
If you leave BMCC without following the withdrawal procedures described above, you are responsible for the final grades received and associated tuition and fees for those course or courses.

Waitlisted Courses

If you have chosen to place yourself on a waitlist, it is important to check your schedule regularly through the Thursday before classes begin. Waitlists are checked daily and students are added when spots become available. If you are added to a class from the waitlist, you will be notified at your my.bluecc.edu email address on or prior to 5 p.m. The last day that students will be added from waitlists is Thursday, 5:00p.m., before classes begin. Notification
will be sent to the students my.bluecc.edu email no later than 5:00p.m.
 
Once waitlists are closed and cleared after 5 p.m., the Thursday before classes start, spots may become available through student drops. Students are encouraged to continue to check the status of class through the day before the class is scheduled to begin. If spots become available, registration is first come first served. Exception: Summer term, campus is closed on Fridays so final waitlist movement is completed at 5:00p.m. on Wednesday before classes begin.

Withdrawal from College

If you find you can no longer attend classes, you should officially withdraw from school. Before doing so, please be sure to work with your advisor to determine if other options are available to you. The last day to withdraw from classes without receiving a grade is listed on the academic calendar. Note: Courses that are less than a full term in length have different withdrawal deadline dates.
 
If you are receiving financial aid, be aware that totally withdrawing prior to completing more than 60.01% of the term can result in your owing money back to the U.S. Department of Education or to BMCC. Please refer to the Financial Assistance section of the catalog for further information.
 
NOTE: A student who is registered is considered to be in attendance. Non-attendance or non-payment does not constitute official withdrawal, nor does it release you from the obligation to pay for your course or courses.
