International Baccalaureate Credit Transfer (6-24-09)
Effective Fall 2009
Proposed Catalog Change: (Inserted after A. NATIONAL EXAMINATIONS, 1. COLLEGE ENTRANCE EXAMINATION BOARD (CEEB) - pg. 60 in the 2009-2010 Washburn University Catalog)
2. Washburn University recognizes the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program. Students should seek information and obtain registration materials through appropriate high school counselors or other secondary school officials. This program is designed for high school juniors and seniors planning to enter college and is administered in conjunction with International Baccalaureate courses taught in the high schools.
At the time of enrollment in the University, official transcripts should be forwarded to the University Registrar in order to receive appropriate credit. Credit is awarded on a course-by-course basis by academic departments depending on departmental policy and the examination scores which are achieved. No entry is made on the college transcript for scores which are lower than those determined to be satisfactory by the Washburn academic departments.
Repetition of Undergraduate Courses (7-24-09)
Undergraduate courses may be repeated. The transcript will contain a complete record of all courses taken and grades earned. Courses for which grades of Ds and Fs are recorded can be retaken without departmental approval; courses for which a grade of C, or pass, or higher are recorded will require departmental approval. The transcript will contain a complete record of all courses taken and grades earned. The repeated and not the original grade will be included in determining the cumulative grade point average. However, after a student has repeated the same course three times, or has repeated three different courses, that student must have the permission of his/her academic dean before repeating any course.
