Departments have the right to refuse to allow students to audit individual courses. The Department Chair must report all courses that students may not audit to the Student Records and Registration Ofﬁce. Audit restrictions will remain in effect until they are removed by the Department Chair
Students must ﬁrst register for the class for credit and then contact the Student Records and Registration Ofﬁce to change the course to audit. Generally students may not audit a Foundations or an online course.
Tuition for audit classes is assessed on the same basis as for credit classes. Students may not change from credit to audit after the deadline to drop a course without earning a “W.” Students wishing to change from audit to credit after the deadline to drop a course without earning a “W” must receive instructor approval.
Students who audit a class are not responsible for attendance, daily preparations or examinations, and no grade is reported or recorded on the permanent record. An “I” grade may not be made up by repeating the class as an audit
Registered students who drop all credit classes and only have audit class(es) remaining are considered withdrawn from the University effective the latest drop date of the non-audit class(es). Students will need to re-apply through the Admissions Ofﬁce for the next semester. Compliance with deadlines is required, unless a deferment is obtained.
Repeat classes allow a class to be taken two or more times for additional credit. Most classes at BYU—Idaho are not repeatable for credit. Departments establish the maximum number of times a class can be repeated. A repeated class does not replace the former grade or credit of a previously repeated class. Approval to enroll in a repeatable course for the purpose of replacing a previous credit grade must be obtained from the Academic Exceptions Committee prior to registering for the course.
Retake classes replace the credit and grade of a previously completed equivalent course even if the previous grade was higher. The most recently completed course is calculated into the GPA, earned credits, and degree requirements. Previous courses remain on the transcript and are designated as retake courses and will not fulfill degree requirements.
Students are allowed a maximum of four retakes during their BYU—Idaho experience. Retakes occur when retaking BYU—Idaho classes previously completed at this University.
BYU—Idaho courses cannot be replaced by equivalent courses from other institutions. Exceptions must be approved by the Academic Exceptions Committee.
Students who transfer must recognize that a transfer institution may not accept the retake class per this definition.
BYU—Idaho offers a limited number of pass/fail courses. Students in these classes receive no letter grade; instead, they either pass or fail depending on whether or not they have met the course criteria. All pass credits count toward graduation but are not included in GPA calculations. Courses designated as letter grade cannot be changed to pass/fail, and courses designated as pass/fail cannot be changed to letter grade.
Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) is a calculation of each semesters earned credits divided by attempted credits. There are reasons that SAP is a fundamental standard at BYU—Idaho; however, two of those reasons are:
A UW grade represents an unofficial withdrawal which is given to a student who meets the following criteria:
*Participation includes: (attending class, submitting work, tests, class related assignments, etc…)
Based on this information, an F grade is appropriate if:
Both an F and a UW are calculated into the GPA as a failing grade value (0.0).
"T" grades represent a temporary grade that was assigned for courses that do not fall within the normal academic deadlines of any given semester (e.g., internships, student teaching, tours). T grades can only be assigned by the Student Records and Registration Office for courses that meet these conditions.
T grades do not impact a student’s GPA, but may impact Satisfactory Academic Standing in that the credits for the course are counted as attempted, but not yet earned. Therefore, instructors over courses for which T grades are assigned are encouraged to submit their final grades as soon as the coursework is completed.
"NR" represents that the grade was not reported by the instructor. A student receiving an "NR" grade should contact the instructor to request that a valid grade be submitted to the Student Records and Registration Office.
As with T Grades, NR grades do not impact a student’s GPA, but may impact Satisfactory Academic Standing in that the credits for the course are counted as attempted, but not yet earned. Therefore, instructors over courses for which NR grades were assigned are encouraged to submit their final grades as soon as possible
