STATEMENT OF STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY
The student is responsible for reading and adhering to academic policies and regulations in University publications, College documents and Program materials. The student is also responsible for ensuring that his/her contact and biographical information is accurate. S/he should inform the registrar’s office or CGPS Center administrative staff of any changes as soon as possible.

EMAIL AND ELECTRONIC SIGNATURES
The University maintains email accounts for all students and therefore, does not save student’s personal email accounts. The University uses the Franklin Pierce email account as an official means of communication with students. University staff, faculty and departments will communicate to students directly through Franklin Pierce email and in many instances will consider this email correspondence as the student’s signature. Faculty may communicate to an entire class of students in the same email and may expect students to reply in kind. Students are responsible for maintaining their University email account so that it is open for new mail and are expected to read their University email regularly and respond appropriately. If students choose to forward their University email to another email provider, they are still responsible for receiving all University communications.

REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Students are eligible to attend classes and receive grades and academic credit only if they are properly registered and financially clear. Any student who is not properly registered will be denied entrance to classes. Fulfillment of registration requirements is the individual student's responsibility, and must be done in accordance with procedures and guidelines outlined by the Registrar. Please see the University Academic catalog for complete policy.

↑  top

STUDENT SCHEDULE
Students are registered for the courses that appear on the student schedule which is accessible on CampusWeb. Students are responsible for any changes required to correct their enrollment. Failure to deliver a completed Change of Registration Status (Add/Drop) form to the Registrar's Office or CGPS Center may result in additional charges or failing grades for courses not dropped. Attending class without being officially registered means credit will NOT be awarded. It is the responsibility of the student to insure that he or she is properly enrolled in the correct courses.

↑  top

AUDITING A COURSE
A student who elects to enroll in a course for no credit, may do so by marking audit in the appropriate block on the registration form. A students may not change from credit to audit or the reverse after the first week of classes (add/drop period). Audit courses are posted on the academic record with the grade notation of "AU" with no academic credit awarded. See the Academic catalog for billing information.

↑  top

REPEATING A COURSE
Once a course has been repeated at Franklin Pierce University, the grade received on the last repeat becomes the final grade and replaces the other grades for that course in the cumulative grade point average (CGPA). All final grades will appear on the student’s transcript. The repeated course will be noted with an asterisk (*) and the new grade will be followed by an (R). A student may elect to take an equivalent course, with permission, at another college and receive credit for that course, but the course grade will not alter the student’s cumulative grade point average and the original grade will remain as part of their CGPA. Repeating a course more than once may impact financial aid eligibility, and therefore students are encouraged to contact Student Financial Services (SFS). Please refer to the University Academic catalog for the complete policy.

TRANSFER OF CREDITS
Transfer students, including graduates of two-year colleges are welcome to apply for entrance in any term or semester. An official transcript from each high school (or GED) and college attended, as well as official score documentation for any other advanced standing/accelerated coursework from non-traditional sources (military, ACE) must be submitted. Courses approved for transfer are credits applied toward program – only credit is reflected; grades do not transfer and are not included in the Franklin Pierce CGPA. Developmental/remedial coursework is not transferable. Please refer to the University Academic catalog for the complete policy.

TRANSCRIPT REQUEST
The Registrar’s Office issues transcripts. Requests for official transcripts, which bear University seal and Registrar signature, are not processed for students with outstanding obligations to the University, financial or otherwise. Enrolled students can obtain an unofficial transcript through CampusWeb.

Yellow RibbonVeteran and Military Personnel

Welcome Student Veterans
Franklin Pierce University welcomes veterans; we are here to help you determine if you qualify for veteran education benefits. We will be happy to assist you with all the facets of your relationship with Franklin Pierce, from inquiry to graduation.
We are approved to accept veteran's educational benefits, participate in the Yellow Ribbon and Tuition Assistance Programs, abide by the Principles of Excellence, and invite credits from non-collegiate sources such as the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) and the American Council on Education ( ACE).

Get Started in Three Easy Steps

1If you have received benefits while attending a previous institution, submit a "Request for Change Program or Place Training" (VA Form 22-1995).
2Once the VA has reviewed your application for benefits, you will receive a Certificate of Eligibility or your Notice of Basic Eligibility. Please submit a copy of either to your admissions counselor.

Your military experience could possibly be applied to college credit, ultimately reducing the amount of time it may take you to complete your undergraduate degree. Please arrange for your military transcripts to be sent to Franklin Pierce University Office of Admissions. If you have college courses from any other regionally accredited institution, simply request for an official transcript to be sent to the Franklin Pierce University Office of Admissions for evaluation of transfer credits.
Also, to assist you in navigating your way through the processes noted above and beyond, please refer to our Resources/Support listing.
