STUDENT EXPERIENCE FAQs
Can I eat my dinner in class?
Most professors understand that we are working adults and need to eat. You will get a break during your class to eat. But remember coffee, soda, water, and the like are always welcome! For the ones that aren't as understanding, we make sure there are plenty of breaks—and we have expanded on-campus dining options to keep you fueled up and ready to go.
Wait, what are blended courses?
In a blended course, the total instructional time is divided equally between the traditional classroom format and a flexibly scheduled online format.
When do classes take place?
Classes meet on campus one night each week or on Saturday mornings for three hours on the day shown on the schedule.

I don’t see the course I need in the Graduate and Continuing Studies schedule; can I enroll in a day course?
Baccalaureate degree candidates may, with prior approval of the Graduate and Continuing Studies Office, enroll in day division courses. Enrollment is on a space-available basis and requires approval by the College Academic Affairs office. Graduate and Continuing Studies students will pay the evening tuition rate for approved courses. (Note: Post-Baccalaureate nursing students who take a nursing course in the day program pay the day rate for that course) Please talk with your advisor before enrolling in a day course.
In general, post-baccalaureate students are eligible to enroll in up to two units of day division undergraduate courses, on a space-available basis, at the evening tuition rate. (Day program nursing courses are day rate) Post-baccalaureate students who have been accepted into the teacher certification program are eligible to enroll in up to four units of day division courses at the evening tuition rate. Students seeking an additional baccalaureate degree will be permitted to take course during the day, at the Graduate and Continuing Studies rate.
Can I change my schedule after I have registered?
We permit students to drop and add courses with certain restrictions. For full term courses, you may drop a course during the first week of classes without any notation on your transcript. If you withdraw from a course after the drop-add period, the course will appear on your transcript with a W (withdrawn) in the grade column. A withdrawal after the drop-add period will result in a grade of F.
For courses that run for less than a full term (such as accelerated or half-unit courses), the drop-add period will end after the first class session of the course. The last day to withdraw with a W will be the end of the fifth week of the course.
Adding courses is limited by space in the desired class. For all these reasons, we strongly encourage you to discuss your course selection with an advisor before registering.
I'm ready to register for my first class! But, how?
I need to see you guys in person. When can I do that?
From August through May, the Graduate and Continuing Studies Office is open Mondays through Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. During the summer, the Office is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Do I need to be accepted to take a class or two?
Any student who wishes to take a class without being enrolled in a program must submit a non-matriculated application and all transcripts. We allow students to take up to 2 classes non-matriculated before enrolling in a program. When looking to take a class, please ensure that any pre-requisites have been met prior to registration.
Are there requirements before I take a course?
That depends. A few courses have specific approval requirements. These are noted in the course descriptions. However, many courses (especially those numbered 200 or higher) have prerequisites. Please check the course descriptions to determine prerequisites. If you have not completed the specified prerequisite, please consult with a Student Experience Mentor before you register for the course. Prerequisites will be required to be completed and your SEM can help you!

How do I know if a course is right for me?
If you are enrolled in a degree or certificate program, please consult with your SEM or academic advisor before you register. Your SEM or advisor will help with sequencing your courses and will check that you are on track with graduation requirements.
If you are not enrolled in a degree or certificate program, please talk with an advisor in the Graduate and Continuing Studies Office about the courses you plan to take. Call 610-861-1400 to set up an appointment.
When must I pay for my courses?
All tuition and fees must be paid in FULL two weeks prior to the first day of class of the term, unless you have enrolled in a Deferred Payment Plan or Employee Reimbursement Plan. If you pay after the due date and have not enrolled in a payment plan, you will be charged a $50 late payment fee.
All fees for any payment plans or technology fee are the responsibility of the student and must be paid prior to the start of the semester.
If you have billing questions, please contact the Office of Student Accounts at 610-625-7142 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I pay my bill?

All students are now required to pay for any outstanding tuition balances and/or miscellaneous fees via CASHNet located directly on AMOS or can be remitted via check or cash to the Office of Student Accounts.
Upon receipt of your tuition statement, payment can be remitted via check, cash or CASHNet.
