Continuous Progress (CP)

This is a non-traditional system of course progress for students who have been admitted to the University. CP courses are regularly scheduled courses that students may not be able to take because of a conflict in their schedule. Special approval is required from the Provost and Program Director or Dean for a total of more than six (6) hours of Continuous Progress courses, Independent Study/Research courses, or a combination of both. All necessary conferences are to be scheduled individually between the student and the instructor. The following policies apply to Continuous Progress courses:

  1. Only students who have been admitted to the University may register for these courses during the regular registration period as published and must complete the course before the end of that semester.

  2. Coursework cannot begin until enrollment is completed and the course fee is paid.

  3. There is a $100.00 fee per course over and above the regular tuition for each CP course. Refunds and withdrawal policy are based on the standard refund schedule and withdrawal policies as published in this catalog.

  4. Authorization to take CP courses will not be given except in extenuating circumstances.

  5. The dean of the college involved will approve both the student and faculty instructor for all CP courses.

In order to register for a CP course, a Continuous Progress Form must be completed, and the form must state the definite plan for accomplishment of the course objective. The plan must include the course syllabus and work schedule. After the Continuous Progress Form has been completed by the instructor and signed by the student and instructor, it is then submitted by the student for approval to the dean of the college in which the course will be taught. Upon final approval by the dean of the college, regular registration procedures are followed.
