USEFUL DEFINITIONS

Registration

The process through which a student reserves a seat and adds their name to the roster for a section of a course. At Coker, registration is done in WebAdvisor.

Drop/Add Period

This is the period during which students are permitted to add or remove courses from their schedules with no recorded or academic penalty. Students can drop a course from their WebAdvisor account under “Register or Drop Sections.” (First week of the traditional semester)

Withdrawal Period

Students may remove a course from their schedule with no academic penalty. However, there will be a “W” record to indicate that the student was withdrawn from the class.

Semester Hour

This is the unit of measurement for credits at Coker University. A course may have a value of 1-4 semester hours.

Online Course

A course that is held entirely online through the Blackboard learning platform. Typically, these classes meet for eight-week terms as part of Coker’s evening courses or 100% online degree programs.
