15 Course Drops The number of semester hours you have upon entering ECU will determine how many drops you are allotted until graduation. You begin with 4 as a first semester freshman. Dropping below full time may affect financial aid as well as insurance. Always consult with your advisor prior to dropping below full time.

16 Course Drops You may drop/add without penalty until August 27 by 5:00 p.m. on Banner using your current registration pin Be wise about dropping a course. If you feel like you are having difficulty, go see your professor or meet up with a tutor. Just don’t wait until the last week of classes to do this!

17 Course Drops Beyond the previously listed date, you have until the following date to drop a course using your allotted drops: October 16 by 5:00 p.m. You will need to contact your Advisor if you wish to drop a course after August 27th and before October 16th at 5:00 p.m. Use good judgment. After these dates pass, you will not be able to drop a course and will remain in your classes for the remainder of the semester.

18 Academic Eligibility Standards
Good academic standing requires a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better. Be mindful that many majors require a 2.5 to be admitted into their program so even though ECU says 2.0 or better represents good academic standing, you need to know what your major requires.

19 Grading System A A- B+ B B- C+ C C- D+ D D- F I (Incomplete) NR (Not Reported) Note: Professors set their own grading scale for letter grades – e.g. some are 10 point, 7 point or even 5 point.

20 Grade Replacements Maximum of four (4) times
Only and level courses in which student earned a C-, D+, D, D- or F Most recent grade replaces the last grade Cannot be used after advanced-level course has been completed Original grade stays on record but does not figure into GPA, will be included in calculation for honors Original attempt will factor in for Financial Aid’s Satisfactory Academic Progress

22 Math Placement Exam If you have transferred in College Algebra or scored a 540 or higher on SAT, you do not need to take the math placement exam. If taking College Algebra (MATH 1065) make sure you attend class the first day!!

23 To Check Placement Scores
Math 1065 Placement In order to take MATH 1065 (College Algebra) Minimum MATH SAT score of 540 or higher Minimum MATH ACT score of 20 or higher Accuplacer Placement test score of 80 or above (Score of 0-79 means student must take remedial math) MATH 0001 is for out of state students MATH 0045 is for NC residents If your major requires additional math and if you have higher than 600 on Math SAT you may qualify to skip college algebra and start with more advanced math. Talk to advisor or math department about this option. If you are transferring in credit for “College Algebra” or “calculus” (not statistics) then you do not need the Accuplacer Placement Test THE PURPOSE OF THIS SLIDE IS TO GIVE AN OVERVIEW OF MATH PLACEMENT BUT REMIND STUDENTS THAT ADVISORS WILL GO OVER THIS MORE IN DEPTH DURING THE 2:00 REGISTRATION SESSION AS IT PERTAINS TO THEIR MAJOR.
