一道本不卡免费高清Wesleyan University confers only oneundergraduate degree: the Bachelor of Arts. Degrees are awarded once a year atCommencement. Students who complete the requirement for the degree at othertimes during the year will be recommended to receive the degree at the nextCommencement.   Based on a modification voted by the faculty, therequirements for this degree, specified below, are for students who enteredWesleyan prior to the Fall of 2000.   Students entering Wesleyan in andafter the Fall of 2000 must refer to the appropriate section of the degreerequirements and academic regulations elsewhere.

Graduation Requirements for EntryPrior to the Fall of 2000

For those students who enteredWesleyan prior to the Fall of 2000, the requirements are: (l) satisfaction ofrequirements for concentration(s); (2) satisfactory completion of 34 coursecredits, no fewer than 16 of which must be earned at Wesleyan or inWesleyan-sponsored programs; (3) a cumulative average of 74 percent or work ofequivalent quality; and (4) at least four semesters of full-time residence atWesleyan or in Wesleyan-sponsored programs. Full-time residence at Wesleyanmeans enrollment for at least three credits in a given semester.

一道本不卡免费高清Students can count toward the totalof 34 course credits required for the B.A. no more than 14 course credits inany one department (15 with a senior project and 16 with a two-credit seniorthesis). Among the 14 course credits in any one department (15 or 16 withproject or thesis) that can be counted toward the degree requirements, no morethan 12 course credits numbered 201 or higher (13 or 14 with project or thesis)can be included, and no more than four course credits numbered from 101 to 200.If a given course appears in more than one departmental listing, i.e., iscross-listed, it must be counted in the departments in which it is listed.

一道本不卡免费高清No more than two credits in physicaleducation, two teaching apprentice credits, two student forum credits, fourindividual tutorial credits, and a total of four independent study andeducation-in-the-field credits may be counted toward the 34 credits needed tocomplete degree requirements.

A student who is deficient inmeeting the requirements for graduation by no more than two credits or who hasfailed senior comprehensives may be awarded the degree “upon completion.”

一道本不卡免费高清The normal academic load is four creditsin each of six semesters and five credits in each of two (usually the sophomoreyear). If conversion to semester hours is required, each Wesleyan credit may beassigned a value of three and one-half semester hours.

Concentration

一道本不卡免费高清To satisfy the concentrationrequirement, a student must complete a departmental major, an interdepartmentalmajor, or a collegiate program (College of Letters and College of SocialStudies).   A student will graduate if the requirements of oneconcentration/major are fulfilled in conjunction with the completion of otherdegree requirements.  

Students should apply for acceptanceas a major in a department or program by the first week of March of thesophomore year. Declaration as a major in a department or program may not bemade prior to the start of the second semester of the sophomore year.Application for membership in the College of Letters or the College of SocialStudies should be submitted by the end of the first year. Eligibilityrequirements are set by the department, program, or college, which may denyaccess or the privilege of continuation to any student whose performance isunsatisfactory. A student who has not been accepted as a major or as a memberof a collegiate program by the beginning of the junior year may not bepermitted to enroll in the University. A student who has not submitted a SeniorConcentration Form to the Dean’s Office at the beginning of the senior year maynot be permitted to enroll until the Senior Concentration Form is submitted.

Departmental Major Programs

The departmental major is anintegrated program of advanced study approved by the major department. Itconsists of a minimum of eight course credits numbered 201 or higher. No morethan four course credits in the departmental major may be elected from otherthan the major department.

The major advisor must approve anychange in a student’s concentration. If the change occurs during the senioryear, the student must submit a new Senior Concentration Form to the Dean’sOffice.

Comprehensive Examination

一道本不卡免费高清In those departments in which aComprehensive Examination is required, passing the examination is a conditionof graduation. The major departments determine the nature and scope of theexaminations, the amount of supervision to be given to the student inpreparation for them, and the time and place of their administration. Both oraland written examinations may be required.

A student who has passed theComprehensive Examination with a grade deemed creditable by the majordepartment may be excused by the department from the final examination of thelast semester in any course in that department and in any extra departmentalcourse included in the concentration program. The student may substitute thegrade attained in the Comprehensive Examination for the final examination gradein each of the designated courses. In all such cases, permission of the courseinstructor is required.

If a student fails to qualify forthe degree in the senior year solely through failure to attain a satisfactorygrade in the Comprehensive Examination, having satisfied all other requirementsfor graduation, the student may be permitted to take a second ComprehensiveExamination.

Interdepartmental Major Programs

The University offers three kinds ofinterdepartmental majors:

1.    InterdepartmentalMajors —At present, these are AfricanAmerican studies, American studies, archaeological studies, East Asian studies,film studies, Latin American studies, medieval studies, Russian and EastEuropean studies, science in society, and women’s studies. The list may changefrom time to time.      

2.    DepartmentallySponsored Interdepartmental Majors —Tworelated departments may offer a joint major, subject to approval by theEducational Policy Committee. At present, the approved programs aremathematics-economics and neuroscience and behavior.

3.    University Majors —A student may arrange a University Major program involvingtwo or more departments, provided that an ad hoc group of at least threemembers of the faculty approves and supervises the program. Studentscontemplating a University major should be accepted for admission to a regulardepartmental major, since the proposal for a University major must be approvedby the subcommittee.   Deadlines for application are November 1 for thefall semester and April 1 for the spring semester.   Additionalinformation about the application procedure may be obtained from the Office ofthe Dean of the College.

All interdepartmental majorprograms, like departmental major programs, must include at least eight coursecredits numbered 201 or higher. Other conditions, including additional courses,may be imposed.

Collegiate Programs

In the spring of the first year, anundergraduate may apply for admission to the College of Letters or the Collegeof Social Studies. Both of these programs offer an organized course of studycontinuing through the sophomore, junior, and senior years and leading to thedegree of Bachelor of Arts.

GENERAL EDUCATION EXPECTATIONS

To help students pursue the goals ofgeneral education, the faculty has divided the curriculum into three areas andestablished a distributional expectation for each of them. The three areas andthe codes used to designate them are the natural sciences and mathematics(NSM), the social and behavioral sciences (SBS), and the humanities and thearts (HA).

一道本不卡免费高清General education courses in thenatural sciences and mathematics introduce students to key methods of thoughtand language that are indispensable to a liberal education as well as to ourscientifically and technologically complex culture. They are intended toprovide scientific skills necessary for critically evaluating contemporaryproblems. These courses apply scientific method, utilize quantitativereasoning, and enhance scientific literacy. They also provide a means ofcomparison to other modes of inquiry by including historical, epistemological,and ethical perspectives. The natural science and mathematics departments havemade special efforts to design and present a variety of courses that meet theseobjectives and are appropriate for future majors in the humanities, arts, andsocial sciences, as well as those interested in majoring in one of the naturalsciences or mathematics.

一道本不卡免费高清General education courses in thesocial and behavioral sciences introduce students to the systematic study ofhuman behavior, both social and individual. They survey the historicalprocesses that have shaped the modern world, examine political institutions andeconomic practices, scrutinize the principal theories and ideologies that formand interpret these institutions, and present methods for analyzing theworkings of the psyche and society.

General education courses in thehumanities and the arts introduce students to languages and literature, to thearts and the mass media, and to philosophy and aesthetics—in short, to theworks of the creative imagination as well as to systems of thought, belief, andcommunication. These courses provide both historical perspectives on andcritical approaches to a diverse body of literary, artistic, and culturalmaterials.

The General Education Expectationsare divided into Stages 1 and 2. The expectation for Stage 1 is that allstudents will distribute their course work in the first two years in such a waythat by the end of the fourth semester, they will have earned at least twocourse credits in each of the three areas, all from different departments orprograms. To meet the expectation of Stage 2, students must also take one additionalcourse credit in each of the three areas prior to graduation, for a total ofnine general education course credits. Advanced Placement and transfer creditsdo not meet Wesleyan’s General Education Expectations. However, courses takenprior to matriculating at Wesleyan may be considered for general educationequivalency credit for transfer students.   Students may also request thatindividual courses taken on an approved study abroad program or a sponsoreddomestic study away program be considered for equivalency, and courses taken onWesleyan administered study abroad programs or through the Twelve CollegeExchange are coded for equivalency.

A student who does not meet theExpectations will not be eligible for University Honors, Phi Beta Kappa, honorsin general scholarship, and for honors in certain departments.

一道本不卡免费高清Please note: Not all courses in theWesleyan curriculum count toward the General Education Expectations.Appropriate courses have been assigned a general education department orprogram and a general education area (i.e., NSM, SBS, or HA).   When acourse has multiple general educational area assignments, a student must selectone general education area assignment by the end of the drop/add period.  Individual and group tutorials never carry a general education designation.

一道本不卡免费高清The inclusion of courses thatfulfill General Education Expectations is vital to a liberal education. Inconsultation with their advisors, first-year students and sophomores shouldchoose courses that represent the essential subject matter and methodology ofthe natural sciences and mathematics, the social and behavioral sciences, andthe humanities and the arts.

ACADEMIC STANDING

Semester Credits

Students are normally expected toearn four credits in each of six semesters and five in each of two semesters(usually the sophomore year).   A student who plans a course schedule withfewer than four or as many as six credits must have the approval of the facultyadvisor and his or her class dean. A three-credit program is considered aschedule for which full tuition will be charged. A student who takes more thanthe normal number of credits for the purpose of acceleration will incuradditional tuition charges (see the Acceleration section). Candidates for theundergraduate degree may not enroll as part-time students (fewer than threecredits).   The exception is for seniors completing the second half oftheir senior thesis who need only this credit to fulfill all degreerequirements.   They may enroll for only the one thesis credit in theirlast semester, but may be subject to acceleration charges since the semesterwill not count as a Wesleyan semester.

Grading System

A student’s academic performance inindividual courses taken at Wesleyan will be graded either by the use of lettergrades (A-F), or by the designations credit (CR) or unsatisfactory (U). At thediscretion of the instructor, all the students in a course may be restricted toa single grading mode, or each student may be allowed to choose between the twomodes. Instructors announce the grading options in WesMaps. In coursesin which students have a choice of grading mode, the final choice must be madeby the end of the drop/add period.

Wheneverthe credit/unsatisfactory mode is used, the faculty member is expected tosubmit to the Registrar’s Office a written evaluation of the student’s work inthe course.

 

Astudent’s work in courses using letter grades is evaluated as follows: A,excellent; B, good; C, fair; D, passing but unsatisfactory; E, failure; and F,bad failure. These letter grades (with the exception of the grade of F) may bemodified by the use of plus and minus signs.

 

一道本不卡免费高清Thenumerical equivalents of the letter grades are:

 

一道本不卡免费高清                 A+    =        98.3                       C-       =       71.7

                 A         =        95.0                       D+      =       68.3

                 A-      =        91.7                       D        =       65.0

                 B+     =        88.3                       D-       =       61.7

                 B       =        85.0                       E+      =       58.3

                 B-      =        81.7                       E        =       55.0

一道本不卡免费高清                 C+      =        78.3                       E-       =       51.7

                 C       =        75.0                       F        =       45.0

Creditin Two-Semester Courses (Required Course Sequences)

Thegranting of credit in two-semester courses (indicated by the "RequiredCourse Sequence" notation in WesMaps一道本不卡免费高清) is contingent upon successfulcompletion of both semesters.   A student who has failed the firstsemester of a required course sequence may not continue in the second semesterwithout the permission of the instructor and the dean of the college.   Astudent who receives the grade of E (but not F) at midyear in a course runningthrough the year and who is permitted by the instructor to continue the coursein the second semester may receive credit for the first semester at thecompletion of the course upon the recommendation of the instructor to the deanof the college.   At that time, the instructor may also recommend arevision of the first-semester grade.   If this is not done, the grade forthe first semester will remain recorded as E, but credit will be given for thefirst semester's work.   A student who fails the second semester of atwo-semester course loses credit for both semesters.  

Honors Program

Adegree with honors can be earned two ways: (1) departmental honors will beawarded to the student who has done outstanding work in the major field ofstudy and met the standards for honors or high honors set by the respectivedepartment or program; (2) honors in general scholarship will be awarded to thestudent who is a University major, or is working on an interdisciplinarythesis, or is working under a department other than the major. The candidatefor honors in general scholarship must fulfill General Education Expectationsand submit a senior thesis that meets the standard for honors or high honorsset by the Committee on Honors.

In the fall semester of the senior year, all candidates fordepartmental honors must enroll in a senior thesis tutorial or ask that theirdepartment forward their names to the honors committee as candidates. For honorsin general scholarship, each candidate must submit (1) a brief proposaldescribing the honors work; (2) a short statement telling how General EducationExpectations have been or will be fulfilled; and (3) letters of support fromthe thesis tutor and the department chair of the student’s major (or, in thecase of a University major, from the Committee on University Majors). Thecompleted thesis is due in mid-April.   More detailed information isavailable from the Honors Coordinator.

University honors are the highest award Wesleyan bestows. Tobe eligible, a student must fulfill General Education Expectations, earn highhonors (either departmental or in general scholarship), be recommended forUniversity honors, and qualify in an oral examination administered by theCommittee on Honors.

PhiBeta Kappa

Theoldest national scholastic honor society, Phi Beta Kappa at Wesleyan is limitedto 12 percent of the graduating class each year. Election to the society isbased on grades and fulfillment of the eligibility requirements describedbelow.

Fallelection is based on grades through the end of a student’s junior year andfulfillment of the General Education Expectations (Stages 1 and 2). Normallybetween 10 and 15 are elected in the fall; transfer students are not eligiblefor consideration at this time.

Springelection is based on grades through the end of a student’s first semester ofthe senior year and fulfillment of the General Education Expectations (Stages 1and 2). Transfer students are eligible for consideration at this time. It ispreferred that students complete their General Education Expectations in theirfirst semester senior year. However, a rationale for second-semester completionis not required provided that the secretary of the Gamma Chapter continuouslymonitors those students to guarantee completion of Stage 2 of the GeneralEducation Expectations.

一道本不卡免费高清Inaddition to fulfilling the General Education Expectations, students areexpected to have a grade point average of 90 or above. Students are nominatedby their major departments.

Academic Review and Promotion

一道本不卡免费高清TheUniversity expects students to make good use of Wesleyan’s educationalresources. A student is expected to satisfy the requirements for the degree ofBachelor of Arts within eight semesters. For regular promotion from semester tosemester, an undergraduate is expected to maintain a cumulative average of 74percent and satisfy the following minimum earned credit requirements. Pendingcredit (i.e., incomplete, ABs) with provisional failing grades may not beconsidered earned. Upon resolution of an incomplete or AB grade, a student’sacademic status will be reviewed .   Changes in class standing are made atthe end of each semester.

Under the graduation requirements for students who enteredprior to the fall of 2000, the minimum earned credit requirements are :

 

after one semester, two credits (four credits expected);

一道本不卡免费高清after two semesters, six credits (eight credits expected);

一道本不卡免费高清after three semesters, 10 credits (13 credits expected);

after four semesters, 15 credits (18 credits expected);

after five semesters, 19 credits (22 credits expected);

一道本不卡免费高清after six semesters, 24 credits (26 credits expected);

after seven semesters, 28 credits (30 credits expected);

for promotion to the sophomoreclass, satisfactory completion of at least six credits;

for promotion to the junior class,satisfactory completion of at least 15 credits and acceptance as a major in adepartment;

for promotion to the senior class,satisfactory completion of at least 24 credits and acceptability forcontinuance as a major in a department.

Students whose academic performance is deficient will besubject to the following forms of academic discipline, according to theseriousness of the deficiencies.

 

1.   Warning —The mildest form of academicdiscipline, usually recommended for students whose academic work in one courseis passing but unsatisfactory.

 

2.    Probation —The category of academic disciplineused when the academic deficiency is serious, usually involving failure to achievethe requisite cumulative average of 74 percent, failure in one course, orpassing but unsatisfactory work in two or more courses. A student on probationis required to perform at a satisfactory level in all courses. Failure to do sousually results in more serious discipline. A student who receives more thantwo incompletes without the dean’s permission may also be placed on probation.

 

3.    Strict Probation —一道本不卡免费高清The category of discipline used invery serious cases of academic deficiency, usually involving at least one ofthe following conditions:

e.             earning two or fewer credits in asingle semester.

Students on strict probation are required to attend allclasses, to complete all work on time, and meet regularly with their classdean. They also are not permitted to receive an incomplete without the classdean’s approval. Two or more semesters on strict probation, sequential or not,may require a student to resign from the University.

 

4.   Required Resignation —The category of discipline used whenthe student’s academic performance is so deficient as to warrant the student’sdeparture from the University for the purpose of correcting the deficiencies.The notation “resigned” will be entered on the student’s official transcript.The performance of students who are required to resign will usually involve atleast one of the following deficiencies:

一道本不卡免费高清a. For all students:

i.    failure to earn therequired number of credits for promotion.

b. If a student is in good standing:

一道本不卡免费高清i.   failure in two or morecourses, or

ii. failure in one course andpassing but unsatisfactory (below C-) work in two others.

c. If a student is on probation:

i.   failure in one course andpassing but unsatisfactory work in one other, or

ii.   unsatisfactory work inthree or more courses

d. If a student is on strictprobation:

ii.   unsatisfactory work intwo or more courses,

一道本不卡免费高清iii. one or more unapprovedincompletes, or

一道本不卡免费高清iv. failure to earn removal fromstrict probation, even if there is a period of good standing.

Students who are required to resign may not be on campus orin University housing, nor may they participate in student activities or thelife of the University community while on this status . Students who arerequired to resign may be readmitted by the dean of the college after anabsence of at least two semesters. The process of application for readmissionrequires a demonstration of academic preparedness and fulfillment of all thespecified requirements for return. Students readmitted after being required toresign will be placed on strict probation.

 

5.      Separation —Thecategory of discipline used when the student’s academic deficiencies are soserious as to warrant the student’s departure from the University withouteligibility for readmission. The notation “separated” will be entered on thestudent’s official transcript. Separation is imposed if a student’s academicperformance warrants required resignation for a second time.

 

6.      Appeals一道本不卡免费高清 —Studentswho are required to resign or separated from the University and who have newinformation about the factors that they believe affected his or her performancemay appeal their status to a sub-committee of the Educational Policy Committee.  A student who wishes to appeal must notify their class dean two daysprior to the scheduled date on which appeals will be reviewed.  Information about the appeals procedures will be provided by the student's classdean.   Appeals are reviewed by members of the sub-committee of theEducational Policy Committee with attendance by the class deans and the dean ofthe college.   A student may elect to attend his or her review orparticipate via telephone.   The committee’s decisions are final.

AdvancedPlacement Credit

Astudent who has completed in secondary school an Advanced Placement course orits equivalent and has achieved a score of 4 or 5 in the corresponding AdvancedPlacement examination will be granted one or two credits toward the Wesleyandegree of Bachelor of Arts.  

In each case, the precise number of credits will bedetermined at the discretion of the relevant department. The department maystipulate the award of Advanced Placement credit upon the successful completionof any course or courses at any level in any department of the University.Should a department decline to designate a Wesleyan course for this purpose,the number of credits granted for the Advanced Placement course alone will bedetermined by that department.

Students may use Advanced Placement credit for the purposeof acceleration. However, students are not permitted to use the credit toreduce the course load, to clear up failures or unsatisfactory work, or tocount toward fulfillment of the General Education Expectations. Additionalinformation about Advanced Placement credit may be obtained from the Dean’sOffice or from the relevant department.

International Baccalaureate Credit

一道本不卡免费高清Astudent who has completed the International Baccalaureate (I.B.) course ofstudy and has received a score of 5 to 7 on the corresponding I.B. examinationsmay be granted between one or two credits for the higher-level examination and.70 credits for the subsidiary-level examination toward the Wesleyan degree ofBachelor of Arts. In each case, the awarding of credits will be determined atthe discretion of the relevant department. The department may stipulate theaward of I.B. credit upon successful completion of course(s) at a specificlevel in the appropriate department of the University.

一道本不卡免费高清Students may use I.B. credits for the purpose ofacceleration but not to reduce a semester’s course load or to substitute forfailures or unsatisfactory work. I.B. credit and Advanced Placement credit maynot be given for the same course work.

一道本不卡免费高清Additional information about International Baccalaureatecredit may be obtained from the Dean’s Office or from the relevant departments.

Acceleration

Astudent may complete work for the bachelor’s degree in fewer than the normaleight semesters. Requests for acceleration should be made in writing to thestudent’s class dean. This may be accomplished by (1) applying approvedtransfer credits, Advanced Placement credits, A-level credits or InternationalBaccalaureate credits toward satisfaction of degree requirements; (2)completing approved summer courses at Wesleyan or another institution; (3)completing independent study or education-in-the-field projects during a summeror an authorized leave of absence; or (4) completing additional Wesleyan courses(those beyond the normal number of credits) during the academic year.

一道本不卡免费高清Acceleration accomplished by completing additional Wesleyancourses during the academic year will be governed by the following guidelines:

 

1.     If a studentcompletes course requirements for graduation in fewer than eight semesters byvirtue of acceleration in academic-year courses at Wesleyan, additional paymentwill be required for the acceleration prior to the awarding of the degree.Course credits earned through transfer credits, Advanced Placement orInternational Baccalaureate credits, summer study, independent study, oreducation-in-the-field completed during a summer or on a leave, and otherapproved non-Wesleyan programs are excluded from the fee requirement.

 

2.    The standard tuitionrate will entitle students to register for the recommended number of coursecredits to meet graduation requirements in eight semesters, four course creditsin each of six semesters and five course credits in each of two semesters for atotal of 34 course credits.

 

一道本不卡免费高清3.    A student will beconsidered to be accelerating if the student registers for more Wesleyan coursecredits than prescribed above, in which case the student, prior to graduation,will pay one-fifth of the semester tuition prevailing at the time of graduationfor each course credit above the normal load.

 

一道本不卡免费高清4.     If a studentpays eight semesters of tuition at Wesleyan, no additional charge will be madefor courses taken above the normal course load.

Special Students

一道本不卡免费高清Theregistrar may admit students to the undergraduate program as special,nonmatriculated students. Individuals eligible include spouses of members ofthe faculty or administration, employees of the University, or persons livingin the Middletown area. These special students may elect any number of courseswith the instructors’ approval and pay a tuition charge per credit up to fulltuition, unless they are eligible for one of the two remission plans availableto members of the Wesleyan community.   Consult the Office of HumanResources for eligibility requirements.

一道本不卡免费高清Special students may not enroll in a course if theirenrollment would displace a regular degree candidate. No financial aid isavailable to special students.

Special students wishing to apply for admission to degreecandidacy may do so through the Admission Office. Their applications will bereviewed with the same rigorous standards as those of other candidates foradmission. Special students admitted to degree candidacy will be expected tosatisfy normal degree requirements, including four semesters of full-timeresidency (at least three credits per semester) at Wesleyan or inWesleyan-sponsored programs and the satisfactory completion of a minimum of 16Wesleyan course credits.

It is expected that transfer students will keep pace withthe class to which they are officially assigned by the Office of the Dean; thatis, the number of Wesleyan semesters available to transfer students to earn theWesleyan degree will be determined by their class standing on entry. In certainexceptional cases, students may be allowed an additional semester(s) tocomplete requirements for the bachelor’s degree upon petition to the dean ofthe college. Please see Degree Requirements for residency requirement.

Transfer students entering Wesleyan in the fall of theirsophomore year are expected to declare a major by the first week of March oftheir sophomore year. Students entering in the spring should declare a majorprior to the course pre-registration for the subsequent semester. Transferstudents who enter in their junior year must apply for acceptance into a majorprogram as soon as possible, but no later than the end of their first semesterat Wesleyan.

Credits approved for transfer from other institutions may beconsidered by the student’s major department for inclusion in the major.Transfer students are encouraged to comply with Wesleyan’s General EducationExpectations. Transfer credits earned prior to matriculation at Wesleyan may beevaluated for general education equivalency. Please note that grades in coursesmust be a C- or better to be eligible for transfer of credit. No more than twocredits may be transferred from one summer.

一道本不卡免费高清Studyon these programs counts towards the residency requirement for students whobegan their study at Wesleyan prior to Fall 2000.   Courses taken on theseprograms may fulfill General Education Expectations.

1.    Wesleyan-approvedprograms abroad

     TheCommittee on International Studies has approved for Wesleyan credit programslocated in a wide range of countries in Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe, theMiddle East and Latin America. The list is reviewed and updated yearly.Students may obtain a copy of the list from the International Studies Office (105 Fisk Hall).

2.    Programs abroadapproved by petition

     Inexceptional cases,the Committee on International Studies may grant ad hoc一道本不卡免费高清 approval for aprogram not included on the official list of Wesleyan-approved programs.Students must submit a petition, accompanied by a recommendation from a memberof the Wesleyan faculty. Students should understand that the burden ofjustifying their choice is theirs. Approval for such programs is granted on aone-time basis and exclusively for the applicant. Regulations governingWesleyan-approved programs (credits, fees, financial aid) apply to any programapproved in this way.

3.    Regulations andguidelines

         Copies of the Guidelines and Financial Procedures are available in theInternational Studies Office. http://www.melcochinaresorts.com/ois .

 

Allprograms :  Credit toward graduation is granted automatically for pre-approved course workcompleted on a Wesleyan or Wesleyan-approved program. Four credits are allowedfor each of two semesters. Permission for a fifth credit for any given semestermay be granted by the program director, in the case of Wesleyan programs, andby the Director of International Studies for Wesleyan-approved programs. Gradesearned will be reported on the Wesleyan transcript. This is the only way inwhich credit is given for courses taken abroad, except for courses taken duringthe summer, which are processed as transfer credit.

一道本不卡免费高清Credittoward completion of a major is not granted automatically for courses takenabroad. Students must consult with a faculty or major advisor when applying forstudy-abroad and must have credit toward the major pre-approved beforedeparture. Major credit is not granted retroactively, and students who need tochange course selections on arrival abroad must seek approval at the time ofregistration through the Office of International Studies. It is theresponsibility of the student to check with the class dean concerning progresstowards graduation and the possibility of over-subscription. General Educationcredit may be granted for courses taken on approved programs abroad only ifrequested through the Office of International Studies and approved by theacademic deans before departure.

一道本不卡免费高清Studentsplaced on strict probation at the end of the semester are not eligible to studyabroad the following semester, and students on medical leave will not normallybe eligible to do so, although exceptions may be made. Any grades ofincomplete, X or AB must be resolved two weeks prior to the student’s departuredate, and students with such grades on their transcript should consult withtheir class dean about the resolution process.

AllUniversity academic regulations apply to students studying for Wesleyan creditabroad, and withdrawal from a study abroad program will be treated in the sameway as withdrawal from the University. Wesleyan may withdraw a student from aprogram abroad or place a student on medical leave, should it be deemedadvisable to do so.

 

Fees:  Studentsare considered to be enrolled at Wesleyan while abroad.   They aretherefore charged Wesleyan tuition and are eligible for financial aid.  Application for financial assistance should be made to the Financial AidOffice.   Tuition charges cover the academic and administrative portionsof the program expense.   Additional expenses such as room and board,transportation, and cultural activities may either be billed through Wesleyanor directly by the program.   This financial arrangement applies to allstudy abroad for credit during the academic year.

 

Wesleyan programs:   Program fees are set by the programs’ administeringcommittees in consultation with the Office of Academic Affairs. The committeesalso establish the criteria for admission and process all applications, with assistancefrom the Office of International Studies. For information and applicationforms, students should contact the Office of International Studies.

 

Wesleyan-approved programs:   Besides applying directly tothe sponsoring institution, students must fill out and submit to the Directorof International Studies a Wesleyan application form. The form is available atthe International Studies Office or on line, and all applications are subjectto approval by the Committee on International Studies.

SummerStudy Abroad:   Studyabroad during the summer is handled in the same way as summer study at U.S.institutions: see “Summer Study, At Other Accredited Institutions.”

Summer Study

WesleyanUniversity does not offer an undergraduate summer program.   Students may,however, earn a maximum of two credits during the summer and post themto their Wesleyan University transcript.   These two credits can be earnedthrough the Wesleyan University Graduate Liberal Studies Program, anotheraccredited institution, or education-in-the-field and independent study credit.

一道本不卡免费高清At Wesleyan: Graduate Liberal Studies Program (GLSP)

Wesleyanundergraduates, normally with junior standing, may attend the Graduate LiberalStudies Program. Attendance does not, however, constitute residency for thepurpose of satisfying the graduation requirement of four semesters of full-timeresidency. Wesleyan undergraduates attending GLSP are subject to its academicrules and regulations. All grades and course work attempted by Wesleyanundergraduates in GLSP will be recorded on the student’s undergraduate recordand transcript.   A Wesleyan undergraduate must have GLSP coursesapproved by their class dean, faculty advisor and the GLSP director.

For further information, contact the Graduate Liberal StudiesProgram, 284 High Street.

AtOther Accredited Institutions

Astudent may obtain credit toward the Wesleyan degree for courses taken in thesummer session of another accredited institution if (1) the courses have beenapproved in advance by the relevant Wesleyan department, and (2) thegrades in the courses are B- or better.   Grades earned at anotherinstitution will not be reflected in the Wesleyan academic record; only creditsmay be transferred. Forms for permission to transfer credit are available atthe Dean’s Office.

Transfer of Credit from Other Institutions

Astudent may obtain credit toward the Wesleyan degree for courses taken duringthe academic year (other than summer session) at another accredited institutionif (1) the courses have been approved in advance by the relevantWesleyan department, and (2) the grades in the courses are C- or better. Gradesearned at another institution will not be reflected in the Wesleyan academicrecord; only credits may be transferred. Forms for permission to transfercredit are available at the Dean’s Office. The final amount of credittransferred to the Wesleyan transcript will be determined in accordance withWesleyan’s policy on transfer credit and the evaluation of the appropriatedepartment. (As a guideline, it should be noted that one Wesleyan unit isequivalent to 3.50 semester hours or 5.50 quarter hours.) Departments mayimpose other conditions for the transfer of credit, such as a higher minimumgrade, review of coursework, passing of departmentally administered exam, etc.No transfer credit for study abroad will be accepted unless earned during thesummer.

A student who wishes to receive Wesleyan credit for workdone at an unaccredited institution must secure the sponsorship of a Wesleyanfaculty member, the approval of the chair of the corresponding Wesleyandepartment, and the approval of the dean of the college prior to undertakingthe work. To apply for credit, a student should write a statement thatdescribes the work to be done and indicates the amount of academic creditsought. The statement should be endorsed by the faculty sponsor and thedepartment chair and submitted to the dean of the college. The faculty sponsorwill be responsible for evaluating the completed work and reporting the amountof credit earned to the dean of the college.   See “Fees,” below.

IndependentStudy

SummerStudy and Authorized Leave of Absence —A student may obtain academic credit for certain forms ofindependent study during a summer or an authorized leave of absence. Activitiessuch as independent reading, special work under supervision, and educationaltours may earn credit provided that (1) these plans have been approved inadvance by the relevant Wesleyan department and the dean of the college,and (2) all requirements specified by the approving department in the form ofan examination, paper, or equivalent assignment have been satisfied.

TeachingApprentice Program

一道本不卡免费高清TheTeaching Apprentice Program offers undergraduate students the opportunity toparticipate with a faculty member (who serves as master teacher) in the teachingof one of the faculty member’s courses. The apprentice is enrolled in anapprenticeship tutorial conducted by the master teacher. The tutorials focus invarying degrees on the subject matter of the course and on the teachingactivity itself. Apprentices are awarded one course credit for successfulcompletion of the semester tutorial.

一道本不卡免费高清The Teaching Apprentice Program has two main objectives:

一道本不卡免费高清1. To provide an opportunity foradvanced students to deepen their understanding of a subject while gaininginsight into the teaching process; and

2. To improve the learningenvironment in courses designed primarily for first and second-year students byadding a student teacher who can bridge the “intellectual gap” betweeninstructors and beginning students. The apprentice is viewed as a member of ateaching team rather than as a teaching assistant. While the interactionbetween the apprentice and the master teacher can take many forms, faculty areurged to design the role of the apprentice so as to stimulate greater participationin the learning activity by students in the course. Normally, the apprenticeand master teacher have, in some prior activity, established the sort ofintellectual rapport that will promote an effective team relationship.

Apprenticeproposals should be developed by the master teacher with input, when possible,from the prospective apprentice. Applications should describe the teaching roleto be played by the apprentice, the academic course work to be done in theapprenticeship tutorial, and the basis on which the apprentice will beevaluated. Applications must also meet the guidelines for apprenticeshipsestablished by the department or program and approved by the Educational PolicyCommittee. Faculty members must submit applications to the Office of AcademicAffairs in October to apply for a spring-semester apprentice and in April toapply for a fall-semester apprentice. The following policies apply to teachingapprentices and teaching apprenticeships:

•    If a student servesas an apprentice in the same course more than once, the student may receive nomore than a total of one credit for teaching in that course.

•    Teaching apprentices may not teach in grouptutorials or student-forum courses.

一道本不卡免费高清•   A student may not count more than two course creditsearned in apprenticeship tutorials toward degree requirements.

CourseAssistants

Whilethe Teaching Apprentice Program stresses the learning achieved by the studentthrough the tutorial with the master teacher and through the student’s teachingresponsibilities, the Course Assistant Program stresses services rendered.Course assistants receive a stipend, but no credit. Faculty who would like toemploy a student to assist with logistical and administrative aspects of acourse (e.g., preparation of course materials, administrative assistance,grading of objective tests) rather than assistance in instruction may requestsupport for a course assistant.

Fundingfor course assistant stipends is limited. The application process iscompetitive, and only those applications received before the deadlines andfitting the criteria for each program will be considered.

Tutorials

一道本不卡免费高清Individualtutorials, numbered 401-402 and 421-422, are available only to sophomores,juniors, and seniors. A tutorial may not be given when a comparable course isavailable in the same academic year. Students may not count more than fourcourse credits of individual tutorials toward degree requirements. The chair ofthe department or program in which the tutorial is given must approve tutorialforms.

一道本不卡免费高清Tutorial applications should include a concise descriptionof the work to be done, including the number of hours to be devoted to thetutorial, the number of meetings with the tutor, a reading list, and a descriptionof the work on which the student’s performance will be evaluated. Applicationforms are available at the Registrar’s Office.

Tutorials for one credit normally should be added during thedrop/add period. Partial-credit tutorials or full-credit tutorials beginningafter the drop/add period must be added to a student’s schedule within fivedays of the start of the academic exercise. The minimum credit amount for anytutorial is 0.25 credit.

Student Forums

Student-rungroup tutorials, numbered 419 or 420, must be sponsored by a faculty member andapproved by the chair of a department or program. Proposals for a student forummust be submitted by the department or program chair to the Office of AcademicAffairs by the end of exams prior to the semester in which the course will beoffered.    Application forms and instructions are available at theRegistrar’s Office. A student may not count more than two student forum coursecredits toward degree requirements.

ADVANCED DEGREES

TheUniversity offers work leading to the M.A. degree in astronomy, chemistry,computer science, earth and environmental sciences, mathematics, music,physics, and psychology and to the Ph.D. in biology, chemistry,ethnomusicology, mathematics, molecular biology and biochemistry, and physics.Theses and dissertations are required for these degrees. The chemistry andphysics departments jointly offer an interdepartmental program leading to thePh.D. degree. The departments of molecular biology and biochemistry andchemistry offer an interdepartmental program in molecular biophysics leading tothe Ph.D.   The Graduate Liberal Studies Program offers a program leadingto the degree of Master of Arts in liberal studies (M.A.L.S.) or thecertificate of advanced study (C.A.S.)

All graduate instruction isscheduled within an academic year consisting of two academic semesters fromSeptember to June.   Summer work consisting of independent study orresearch is encouraged. No evening courses or summer school courses other thanthose in the Graduate Liberal Studies Program are available.

CombinedPlans of Study

ConcurrentB.A. and M.A. Program —TheAnthropology Department offers a five-year program leading to concurrent B.A.and M.A. degrees. Application for the program must be made to the departmentprior to the end of the junior year.

Candidates for the bachelor’s degree who satisfy theWesleyan requirements for honors in general scholarship may, in their senioryear, be admitted to candidacy for the master’s degree, provided that they haveearned at least 32 credits toward the bachelor’s degree by the start of thesenior year and are not otherwise deficient in satisfying the requirements forthe undergraduate degree. The work of these candidates is under the directionof the Graduate Council. Successful candidates may receive the B.A. and M.A.degrees concurrently.

Five-YearB.A./M.A. Program 一道本不卡免费高清 The science programs atWesleyan offer a variety of excellent research opportunities to undergraduatesas well as to graduate students. In fact, the opportunity for undergraduates tocarry on significant research is one of the strongest features of science here.Many undergraduates conduct research in their major department in closecollaboration with a faculty member, and those who do often report that this hasbeen the most valuable part of their education. However, in recent years, asthe opportunities to do high-quality research have multiplied, some studentshave felt the need for a more intensive involvement in research than ispossible in the traditional four-year undergraduate setting. In consultationwith their major department, such students have constructed programs throughwhich they have been able to obtain the MA degree after a fifth year of studyfollowing their BA. This additional year has provided them with the opportunityto devote a great deal of time to completing the research projects they beganas undergraduates.

一道本不卡免费高清Wesleyanrecently introduced the five-year BA/MA as a formal curricular option for thosestudents who feel the need for the intensive research experience that a fifthyear of study can afford. The program has a strong research orientation.However, it also includes coursework, seminars, and, in some cases, teaching.Although it is anticipated that most individuals who enroll in this programwill go on for further graduate study, the program provides a strongprofessional background for either further advanced study or employment inindustry. Completion of both BA and MA requirements in five years requirescareful planning of one's schedule of courses and research for the last twoyears of the program. A student hoping to enter this program is expected todeclare the intention to do so by the junior year in his/her academic career topermit the design of an acceptable program for the last two years with both themajor department and a research advisor within that department.

TheMA requires a minimum of eight credits in addition to the 32 necessary for theWesleyan BA. Of these eight credits, two to four must be in advancedcoursework; the remaining credits may be earned through research, seminars, andresearch practica. MA credit will only be awarded for academic exercises inwhich grades of B- or higher have been earned. Financial support other thantuition remission in the fifth year is not a normal component of this program.However, some students in the fifth year of the program may be able to findsupport from research grant funds.

For further information on the BA/MA program, MA and PhDprograms, contact the Office of Graduate Student Services, 130-132 ScienceTower.

Exceptions will be made for courses that start afterthe beginning of the semester, provided that the required drop/add or tutorialforms are submitted to the Registrar’s Office within five class days after thestart of the course.

A student may withdraw, by choice and without penalty, froma course through the end of the tenth week of the semester. Partial-creditphysical education courses must be withdrawn from by the end of thecorresponding quarter. In the case of second- and fourth-quarter physical educationcourses, withdrawal must come through by the end the tenth week of thesemester. Students who drop a course on or before the eighth class day of thesemester will have the course deleted from their record. Students who withdrawfrom a course after the eighth class day 一道本不卡免费高清of the semester will receive agrade of “W.” The student must present notice of withdrawal, signed by theinstructor, the faculty advisor, and a class dean, to the registrar by the endof the tenth week of the semester.

An instructor may require a student to withdraw from acourse if the student fails to meet the announced conditions of enrollment.

一道本不卡免费高清Students are responsible for withdrawing officially even ifthe instructor has determined that they may not continue in the course. Theymust submit a completed drop/add form to the Registrar’s Office.

Auditing

Subjectto any conditions set by the instructor, a registered Wesleyan student may bepermitted to audit a course without charge. At the end of the semester, theinstructor may add to the Grade Roster the name of any student who has attendedwith sufficient regularity to have the course listed in the academic record asaudited, without credit.

Permission to audit does not 一道本不卡免费高清include permission tohave tests, examinations, or papers read or graded. Wesleyan alumni and alumnaeand members of the community who are not registered students are permitted toaudit undergraduate courses, subject to the following conditions:

 

1.   that the presence of anauditor not compromise access of undergraduates to the course;

2.   that the auditor receivepermission of the instructor;

一道本不卡免费高清3.   that the terms of theauditor’s participation in the work of the course be mutually agreed upon inadvance with the instructor; and

4.   that no academic credit beawarded to an auditor and no transcript issued.

ClassAttendance

A student is expected to attend class meetingsregularly. Since thefaculty intends that class attendance shall be primarily the student’sresponsibility, no precise limitation of absences has been prescribed for allstudents. It is understood, however, that absence from class is regarded as theexception, not the rule.   An instructor should notify the class dean ofany student who is absent from class for one week or three consecutive classes,whichever comes first. Students on strict probation must attend all classes inwhich they are enrolled.

一道本不卡免费高清Instructors are entitled to establish definite and preciserules governing attendance. Any student who is repeatedly absent without excusefrom scheduled academic exercises at which attendance is mandatory may berequired to withdraw from the course.

Completionof Work in Courses/Incompletes

一道本不卡免费高清Allthe work of a course (semester-long projects and papers) must be completed andsubmitted to the instructor by the last day of classes.  The onlyexceptions to this are semester examinations, take-home final exams or finalpapers, which may not be scheduled or be due any sooner than the first day ofthe examination period, and preferably at the time designated for the course’sregistrar’s scheduled examination time.  A student who is unable to meetthese deadlines, for the reasons listed below, may request the permission ofthe instructor to meet the requirement no later than the first day of classes ofthe subsequent semester. If the instructor grants the extension then a grade ofIncomplete (IN) must be submitted to the Registrar at the time grades aredue.  Please note: A student whose credit total is deficient will besubject to an earlier deadline, two to three weeks prior to the first day ofclasses of the subsequent semester, by which time outstanding courserequirements must be met and submitted to the instructor.

一道本不卡免费高清Approvedgrades of incomplete must be accompanied by a provisional grade that willbecome the final grade if the outstanding work in the course is not submittedby the first day of classes of the subsequent semester or earlier deadline, asstated above.

Astudent may receive up to two incompletes per semester by this method. Toreceive incompletes in more than two courses, the student must petition his orher class dean. The petition can be granted only on grounds of illness, familycrisis, or other extraordinary circumstances. The dean may, on petition, granta student incompletes for these reasons, whether or not the student hascontracted for any incompletes with the instructors.

Forthe impact of incompletes on students’ records for the purposes of academicreview, students should consult their class dean.

Studentson strict probation will not be allowed to receive incompletes without theprior approval of their class dean.

RepeatingCourses

Exceptfor particular courses (see WesMaps一道本不卡免费高清) a course for which a studentreceived a passing grade may not be repeated for credit. If a student repeats acourse in which a failing grade was received, the failing grade will remain onthe transcript and be calculated in the grade-point average even after thecourse is repeated.

ReadingWeek

Thisperiod is designated for students to prepare for examinations and completeassignments due at the end of the semester.   To protect the integrity ofthat week, the faculty have established the following regulations.

  • Final exams, comprehensive examinations covering materials from the course of the entire semester, are to be given only during the formal exam period established by the faculty.
  • Classes can be held only during the class period established by the faculty; make-up classes should be held during that established class period.
  • Take-home final exams and final papers must be due no sooner than the first day of the exam period, and preferably at the time designated for the course’s registrar-scheduled examination.
  • Semester-long projects and papers may be due the last day of classes.
  • Student organizations should not schedule retreats, programs, or meetings that require other students’ attendance during Reading Week.
  • Departmental, Program, and College activities that require students’ participation should not be held during Reading Week, with the exception of oral and written examinations covered by alternative exam calendars.
  • Sessions or information programs that require students’ attendance should not be held during Reading Week.

Examinations

ScheduledFinal Examinations —Theschedule of final examinations will be issued in advance. The time of anyexamination may be changed by unanimous request of the class and with theapproval of the instructor; but it must be set within the period designatedby the faculty for examinations, 一道本不卡免费高清and the change must be reported promptlyto the registrar. The faculty has voted to comply with the followingguidelines:

1. That “hour exams” be limited to50 minutes so that students who are scheduled to leave for other classes maynot be placed at a disadvantage.

2. That final examinations belimited to three hours unless otherwise announced before the examination.

Make-upExaminations for Suspended Students —一道本不卡免费高清Students who have been suspended from the privileges of thecampus for a limited period are held responsible ultimately for all of the workin their courses. Giving make-up examinations to a suspended student upon thestudent’s return is entirely at the discretion of the instructor. Theinstructor may waive any examinations or quizzes given to the class during theperiod of the suspension and may base the student’s grade on the rest of therecord; or the instructor may require the student to take make-up examinationsor submit additional work.

一道本不卡免费高清If a student is absent from the final examination with thepermission of the instructor, a grade of absent will be assigned. A grade ofabsent will be accompanied by a provisional grade that will become the finalgrade if the final examination is not made up by the end of the first full weekof classes of the subsequent semester. Grades are due in the Registrar’s Office72 hours after a scheduled final examination.

一道本不卡免费高清If a student has three or more final examinations on one dayor four in two days, the student may request a rescheduled examination from oneinstructor.

Leave,Withdrawal, Readmission, and Refund Policy

Thefollowing categories indicate the conditions under which a student’sregistration at Wesleyan may be interrupted. These designations are recorded onthe student’s permanent record.

1.      Leave of Absence —An undergraduate may take anapproved leave of absence for a specified period, normally not to exceed twosemesters.   Students who interrupt their enrollment at Wesleyan by takingnonacademic leave for more than four consecutive semesters must apply forreadmission. Leave-of-absence application forms are available in the Dean’sOffice and the Registrar’s Office.

一道本不卡免费高清Foracademic and nonacademic leaves, the deadline for submission ofleave-of-absence applications is December 1 for the spring semester and April 1for the fall semester.   Academic and non-academic leaves will not begranted after the drop/add period at the beginning of each semester.

一道本不卡免费高清Noticeof intention to return to Wesleyan from academic and nonacademic leaves shouldbe filed with the registrar by the end of the last semester for which the leavewas taken, December 1 for fall semester and April 1 for spring semester.  Students who do not return or renew their leave at its termination will beconsidered to have withdrawn voluntarily. Application for readmission will beconsidered.

a.  Academic Leave . Astudent on academic leave must earn a minimum of three course credits persemester (full-time status) at another institution.   Academic leave islimited to one year but may be renewed for an additional year upon request tothe class dean and the faculty advisor.   Students may not go on anacademic leave to study abroad.   Credits earned while on leave must beprocessed two weeks prior to the semester in which a student returns forpurposes of class-year classification.

b. Nonacademic Leave . Wesleyanpermits students to interrupt their college careers for a semester or year ofnonacademic experience. Students may receive assistance from the Dean’s Officeand from the Career Resource Center in exploring opportunities for the periodof the leave. Nonacademic leave is limited to one year but may be extended uponrequest to the class dean and faculty advisor.   Students will bereclassified to the appropriate class year at the end of the semester in whichthey file their leave.
