A student who for any reason misses more than 10 days (or the equivalent of 36 contact hours) will be dropped from the course. A student who is dropped will be allowed to retake the course the following semester.

Freshmen taking ENGL 0210 may enroll in no more than two academic courses with a maximum of 7 academic course credits. Any student who withdraws from ENGL 0210 must also withdraw from the two other academic courses.
