Specific Class Wait Lists
When registering for a full class students may add their name to that classes’ wait list. Once added, check the waitlist status using student toolbox. Check the student toolbox “my schedule” to verify class registration, if the waitlist disappears. Students may remove their name from the waitlist using the student toolbox “waitlist” option. Students are encouraged to attend the first day of class regardless of waitlist status. The instructor is able to add or drop students from the class.
Full and Part-Time Student Status
LWTech considers students enrolled in 12 or more credits full-time enrolled. This corresponds to financial aid full-time enrollment status. Some programs may require higher quarterly credit loads to complete requirements in a specific time period. Some external agencies use different credit values to calculate full-time status. LWTech considers students registered for fewer than 12 credits part-time. Please consult the Financial Aid Office for definitions of three-quarter time, half-time, and less than half-time.
Withdrawing From Courses
Course withdrawal occurs when a student drops a course in person, through web services, in writing, by signed fax, or using a college generated email address to contact the Enrollment Services department. The ability to drop courses via web services ends at the end the of the 100% refund period as noted in the quarterly class schedule. Withdrawing from a class funded with financial aid may reduce financial aid eligibility. Contact the Financial Aid department for information to determine eligibility.
Transcripts and Grades
A transcript is the official record of all courses and received grades. Students may request official transcripts by ordering them online through National Student Clearinghouse. Students may also order transcripts with a records request. Use Student Toolbox to access unofficial transcripts.
Degree and Certificate General Requirements
Use the college catalog for each academic or technical program’s course and graduation requirements. Receiving any degree or certificate requires the following:
• A minimum numeric grade of 2.0 or higher in all required courses that receive a numeric grade and a cumulative grade point average of 2.0.
• At least 30% of technical credits must be earned in residence at LWTech. For Certificates of Completion, all technical credits must be earned at LWTech.
Change of Program Process
Students wanting to change programs will complete a change of program form prior to the beginning of the quarter. Students changing programs may need to wait for available space or quarter start (for cohort programs) to begin the new program.
Apply for Graduation
To complete a degree or certificate use the apply for graduation form. You will receive email correspondence describing the status of your application. Walking in graduation ceremony is a different process. Visit the Student Programs department or High School Programs department to learn more about walking in those graduation ceremonies.
