Academic Advisors

A select group of faculty members serve as Academic Advisors to the student body. Each student is assigned an Advisor, and the name of the Advisor is provided to the student during orientation. Prior to each term, students will prepare a schedule of classes in consultation with the Academic Advisor. The program is under the direction of the respective college Dean. A student may schedule an appointment with his/her Advisor at any time; an Advisor may also contact the student should the Advisor believe that a meeting is needed. The Advisors remain informed of their advisees’ academic progress, and periodic meetings are encouraged between Advisors and students in academic jeopardy.

Add/Drop/Withdrawal Course Policy

A master’s student may drop a course within the first two weeks (14 calendar days) and receive a full refund on the course. An undergraduate student enrolled in the Accelerated Science Program has one week (seven days) to drop a course for a full refund.

Grade Changes

An instructor’s final grade(s) may be changed for the following reasons:

  • A mathematical error in calculation.
  • A transcription error in the grade book.
  • Make-up of an incomplete.

Grade changes may be made up until the end of 14 calendar days from the start of the trimester immediately following the recording of the initial grade.

The reason for the grade change must be noted on the grade change form and approved by the instructor, the division chair and the dean.

An Incomplete grade is given when the student has failed to complete a part of the required coursework as described in the syllabus. Incompletes are given at the discretion of the faculty member. Any Incomplete grade must be rectified within the first two weeks (14 calendar days) from the start of the following trimester in which the incomplete grade was received. If the Incomplete grade is not satisfied by that point, the grade will automatically be converted to a grade of F, and the student is required to repeat the course the next trimester. In rare circumstances, exceptions are made through the Office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs. Students receiving a grade of incomplete will still be considered as enrolled at Logan during the time period in which the incomplete is rectified. Students will be charged tuition according to the tuition policies of the program for any Incompletes that are allowed to be carried past the date established by the program to resolve the Incomplete. A $25 fee will be applied to the student’s account if the Incomplete was a result a final exam or other work being made up.

Graduation

The Registrar performs a degree audit on each student’s record to determine who is eligible to graduate each trimester in each program. These lists are then forwarded to the graduation coordinators who plan the commencement ceremonies. The Registrar also orders all diplomas and clinic certificates and prepares a final packet for each student. The Office of the Registrar conducts senior checkout two days prior to graduation for master’s and DC graduates. This is a procedure whereby students can be cleared financially by each office prior to graduation. No student who has any financial obligation outstanding will be allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony.

Loan Deferment Forms

The Office of the Registrar reports enrollment status information to the National Student Clearinghouse at the beginning of every trimester. The National Student Clearinghouse is our authorized agent for reporting to the NSLDS as well as other lenders and guarantor. The Office of the Registrar will complete loan deferment paperwork for students as needed. Students should complete the top portion of the form, sign and date it. Students should also include their lender’s name and address or fax. The registrar will complete the enrollment verification and send to the lender retaining a copy of the form in the student’s file.

The Registrar’s deadline date will be earlier than the postmark deadline noted by the National Board because of the extra time needed to process all of the applications.

International Students

The Assistant Registrar serves as the Predominate Designated School Official (PDSO) and the Registrar is also a Designated School Official (DSO). The Office of the Registrar updates the international students’ enrollment in SEVIS each trimester. Address changes are also made in SEVIS as they occur so it is important for international students to notify the Registrar as soon as possible when a change occurs. Optional Practical Training paperwork is handled by the PDSO for those students who wish to remain in the United States for one year after graduation. It is up to the international student to make sure his/her I-20 is updated properly and that all paperwork is in order. Students must see the PDSO before applying for Optional Practical Training.

State Board Applications

The Office of the Registrar is available to assist students with completion of State Board applications and answer questions regarding same. Notary Service is available in the Office of the Registrar for the students’ convenience.

Transfer of Credits/Advanced Standing/Proficiency Examinations

Transfer credit is defined as credit awarded for coursework successfully completed at another accredited institution and not requiring evidence of proficiency by examination. Such coursework is typically equivalent in terms of credit hours, course content and depth of instruction to Logan coursework.

The awarding of advanced standing credit is a privilege granted by Logan to qualified students to demonstrate their knowledge in coursework that does not qualify for transfer credit.

Consideration for transfer or advanced standing credit is initiated normally by an academic advisor during the initial review of applicant files. At the same time, applicants and trimester 1 students are also strongly encouraged to contact an Academic Advisor as soon as possible with any questions they may have regarding transfer or advanced standing credit. Requests for transfer or advanced standing credit must be received within the first 30 days following the date of matriculation.

For additional information, view the Academic Catalog.

Veteran's Benefits

The Office of the Registrar certifies enrollment for students receiving Veteran's benefits. The student should provide a copy of his/her DD214 and a Certificate of Eligibility to the Registrar. Once these documents are provided and the student is registered for classes, his/her enrollment will be certified using VA-ONCE, the Department of Veterans' Affairs online program.

Withdrawal/Interruption Procedures

Withdrawal or Interruption from the Institution falls into the following categories:

1. Withdrawal/Interruption with the intent to return within six months. In this case the student indicates the date he/she intends to return. The student must be in good academic standing, and during the period of withdrawal is allowed to utilize the Learning Resources Center and Health Center. The student meets with his/ her academic advisor up to four weeks prior to the date of return to establish a class schedule.

2. Withdrawal without the intent to return. This occurs when students leave Logan with no intention of returning or when students withdraw when they are not in good standing. If they decide to return at a later date, they must seek readmission through the Committee on Reinstatement. The Committee meets during the break between trimesters to consider these requests.

3. Administrative Withdrawal. Continued excessive absences from classes by a registered student without proper notification of the intent to withdraw from the College may subject the student to Administrative Withdrawal. Administrative Withdrawal is under the authority of the Vice President of Academic Affairs. Should the student seek to return to Logan, the student must meet with the Committee on Reinstatement for consideration. All policies relating to grades, refund of tuition and readmission are applied in the case of Administrative Withdrawal and are consistent with standard college procedures. In all cases, all students returning to Logan will start classes on the first day of the trimester.
