CLASS SCHEDULING INFORMATION – Undergraduate Students

Part of your obligation in pursuing a program of study is the careful planning of your program, including the selection of courses. Your academic advisor is your resource for assistance and counsel. You should have a long-term plan of study which includes courses that need to be taken in each succeeding semester. As you move through the plan of study, remaining courses will need to be planned with greater precision. By the time you have earned eighty (80) credits, a final plan of study (80-HOUR REVIEW) for your remaining terms at the University should be reviewed with your advisor. Keep such documents in a safe place.

  • For the WINTER SESSION and/or SPRING SEMESTER, select the course(s) you need from the class schedule on S.C.O.T.S.

  • Check your registration status on S.C.O.T.S. several days before scheduling. If there are any holds from parking tickets, library fines, etc. on your record preventing registration, you must clear them.

  • Meet with your academic advisor in advance of your assigned scheduling date in order to schedule your classes, develop a class schedule, alternate courses, and obtain your Alternate PIN. The Alternate PIN, which is equivalent to his or her signature, is needed to schedule on S.C.O.T.S. Obtaining the Alternate PIN verifies the undergraduate student has received sufficient advice to schedule for the next academic term. For these reasons, only your advisor or department chairperson can provide the Alternate PIN. Please note that the Alternate PIN is different from the PIN needed to login to MyEdinboro. The student determines the PIN - the University determines the Alternate PIN. Please be sure to record your Alternate PIN so you can make adjustments to your schedule through the Add/Drop/Withdrawal period of that semester.

  • Use S.C.O.T.S. to schedule. These dates are listed on the Records and Registration homepage, as well as on the S.C.O.T.S. page of your personal record. To schedule students fairly, and to ensure you are scheduled promptly, there can be no exceptions to this schedule.

  • To finalize or secure your registration for the class schedule you create during scheduling, you must complete your financial arrangements, E-Reg, and attend your classes the first day. Failure to do so could result in loss of your class schedule.

GRADUATE STUDENTS

For optimal results, graduate students should schedule using S.C.O.T.S. The alternate PIN for all graduate students is 999999. NEITHER REGISTRATION REQUESTS NOR SCHEDULE CHANGES CAN BE PROCESSED VIA THE PHONE. Graduate students need special permission to enroll in a 500 level course fo graduate credit. . If you have a Public Information Hold on your records, you will only be able to register on S.C.O.T.S. or in person with photo identification. Graduate students should schedule themselves via S.C.O.T.S. for graduate level online course offerings, assuming all appropriate prerequisite course requirements have been met. Graduate students should contact their advisor with any questions concerning a program's prescribed course sequence.

NOTE: Graduate students registering under "Special Student" status are not eligible for financial aid. Post-Baccalaureate teacher certification students are not eligible for graduate-level loans unless they are also admitted into a master's degree program. To be considered as a half-time student for financial aid purposes, a graduate student must be registered for 3 to 6 graduate-level credits. Or, if enrolled in undergraduate courses, the student must have 6 to 11 credits with one course being at the graduate level.

ADULT STUDENTS

Adult students (students 25 years and older or who are independent for financial aid purposes) qualify for priority scheduling. Those who wish to apply for priority status can find instructions and the Adult Student Priority Scheduling Application online at www.edinboro.edu, keyword “priority scheduling.” The application should be submitted to the Office for Adult Student Services. Scheduling for adult students with priority status will be held according to the scheduling dates calendar located in the Frequently Asked Questions section. Complete scheduling on S.C.O.T.S. for maximum priority. If you have a Public Information Hold on your records, you will only be able to register on S.C.O.T.S. or in person with photo identification.

AUDITING OF UNDERGRADUATE CLASSES

1. Edinboro University undergraduate students may audit undergraduate courses, and Edinboro University graduate students may audit undergraduate or graduate courses. Auditing involves participation in a course without accountability for credit purposes.

2. Students must have the approval of their advisors and the instructors of the courses to be audited.

3. An audited course will not be counted as part of the student's academic load and no credit will be received. Audited courses will be recorded on student transcripts as "AU."

4. Students scheduling for audits will be given lowest priority for seat availability.

5. After the expiration of the "add" period, students may not change audit status to credit or credit to audit.

6. Students, with the exception of those age 62 or above and receiving social security or equivalent retirement benefits, must pay the Bursar's Office the established course credit fee for auditing courses.

7. Petitions for credit by competency examinations will not be honored for courses audited by students

FINAL EXAMS

Comprehensive final examinations are given only during the designated examination period of each semester. They are scheduled by the University and not by the individual instructor. Comprehensive final examinations will not be given during the week prior the designated exam period for each semester. Make-up examinations and/or non-comprehensive final exams previously scheduled on the syllabus may be given.  Students with special needs should make arrangements with their instructors.  All examinations or alternate methods of evaluation will be given in the same room in which the course normally meets during the semester unless otherwise indicated on the class schedule. Classes that use several rooms during the semester will have their final examination in the room in which they hold their first class of the week.

CONFLICTS: Every attempt has been made to make this schedule conflict-free. If a student has two examinations scheduled at the same time or more than three examinations in one day, the student should try to resolve the conflict with the instructors involved.

ABSENCE FROM FINAL EXAMINATIONS OR ALTERNATE METHODS: Absence from an examination or alternate method due to a medical emergency must be supported by a medical excuse. It is the student’s responsibility to notify the professor involved prior to exam time and supply the professor with a written medical excuse.

FINAL EXAMINATION PUBLICITY: The final exams are included in the Master Class Schedule and can be viewed on SCOTS.

Completed Satisfactory/ Unsatisfactory forms, with all signatures, must be returned to the Office of Records and Registration no later than the last day to add. After opting for a Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory grade, a student may not then elect to receive a letter grade in that course. For graduate students, the “S/U” grade may be used only in courses PSYC 744 Graduate Study in Psychology-Unit V (Internship) and ART 700 Seminar in Fine Arts.
