Students are responsible for knowing and adhering to the policies, deadlines, and procedures contained in the catalog and current course schedule. Avoid potential enrollment problems by reading the various publications carefully. Students may receive credit only for those courses for which they are properly registered and will assume academic and financial responsibility for any course in which they register unless they officially cancel registration according to the established deadlines.
An appeal for an exception to the tuition and fee policy for withdrawals, including requests for exceptions to posted deadlines, must be filed with the Records and Registration Appeals Committee. The Committee meets regularly to consider these requests. The appeal must document extenuating circumstances. Click here for information regarding the appeal process (pdf).
Requests for verification of enrollment and degrees should be directed to the Records and Registration department. See the Enrollment/Degree Verifiction page for further information.
- PROBATION: Students on probation are restricted to twelve (12) semester hours for the spring or fall semester and six (6) semester hours for the summer session. Students placed on probation must speak to their adviser to add, drop or modify their course schedule.
- SUSPENSION: Students who have been suspended from UIS must complete an appeal of academic suspension form to be reinstated. It is the responsibility of the student to file the appeal, which must be approved by the adviser, convener, chair, director and academic dean. If approved, the conditions of probation are applicable (see above).
Students are occasionally required to submit course descriptions for courses taken at the University of Illinois at Springfield for acceptance of credit at another institution or for prerequisite verification.
