The following courses are exempt from this rule:
Limitation on In-State Tuition Rates for some Undergraduates
New undergraduate students enrolling in an institution of higher education in Fall 1999 or afterward are subject to the conditions of Senate Bill 345 passed in the 76th Legislative session. The law states that a resident undergraduate student whose attempted hours exceeds, by at least 45 semester credit hours, the number of hours required for completion of the degree program may be charged tuition at a higher rate. The higher rate will not exceed the rate charged to non-resident undergraduate students. A resident student is one who pays the in-state rate for tuition purposes. For students who enroll in college for the first time Fall 2006 or afterward, the excessive hours limit changes to 30 semester credit hours.
Limitation on Dropping Courses
Under section 51.907 of the Texas Education Code, "an institution of higher education may not permit a student to drop more than six courses, including any course a transfer student has dropped at another institution of higher education." This statue was enacted by the State of Texas in spring 2007 and applied to students who enroll in a public institution of higher education as first-time freshmen in fall 2007 or later. Any course that a student drops is counted toward the six-drop limit if "(1) the student was able to drop the course without receiving a grade or incurring an academic penalty; (2) the student's transcript indicates or will indicate that the student was enrolled in the course; and (3) the student is not dropping the course in order to withdraw from the institution." Some exemptions for good cause could allow a student to drop a course without having it counted toward this limit, but it is the responsibility of the student to establish that good cause.
Contact the Office of Admissions for more information before you drop a course.
A&M-Texarkana students affected by this statue that has attended or plans to attend another institution of higher education should become familiar with that institution's policies on dropping courses.
