Student Standing Committee
The Student Standing Committee is a standing committee of the College that deals with requests for minor exceptions to academic policy as outlined in the Augsburg College Catalog and the ACTC Cross-Registration Policies and Procedures Booklet. Typically, the Committee reviews requests for:
- Changes after registration deadlines (adding, withdrawing, or grade option changes)
- Extending time for making up an incomplete
- Requesting permission to take a course overload
- Request for exception to the general education requirements
Note: petitions for an exception to the published registration deadlines will require a $50 petition fee attached to the petition. This fee is non-refundable regardless of the outcome of the petition. Petitions involving adding or dropping courses/withdrawing from classes must be submitted within 6 months of that published registration deadline.
For petitions requesting a late registration, any student account holds must be cleared before submitting the petition. Students who are allowed to add a course by petition after the published deadline will incur a $150 late registration fee.
In addition, the Committee reviews students’ transcripts in determining those to be placed on academic probation or to be dismissed from the College on academic grounds. The Committee also hears appeals from students who have been dismissed for academic reasons.
The Committee reviews student requests for readmission to the college after dismissal or returning after leaving while on probation or students readmitting to the college immediately after a term from which they withdrew from college.. The Committee typically meets every other week throughout the school year (September through April), and once a month during the summer.
