Sophomore Exploratory Option

From Registration Day through Add Date, sophomores may designate one subject as Exploratory in each of their fall and spring semesters.

An Exploratory subject is one in which the student may either accept the grade awarded or change the subject to Listener status. No action is needed to retain the grade and units.

Sophomores may designate any subject as Exploratory, including an Institute or departmental requirement or a cross-registered subject taken at another school.

Two deadlines have been established specifically for Exploratory subjects. Sophomores may:

Students receive no credit for Listener subjects, and Listener subjects do not appear on students' transcripts (external record).

The regular deadlines for adding and dropping subjects and for changing from Listener to credit remain in effect.

Once the student's advisor has approved the registration selections for the term, changes must be made using the Online Add Drop application.

Add Date: Friday, March 9
Drop Date: Thursday, April 26
