Admission & Registration Policies


Normally full attendance is required for all courses. A student who is unable to attend a class must give the professor a valid reason, preferably in advance, and consult with the professor to make up the work missed. If a student expects to miss more than one-third of the classes for a given course, he or she should not register for it.


Normally all credit courses may be audited. The auditor must register with St. Mark’s College and pay the appropriate audit tuition. The student may change status from audit to credit or credit to audit early in the course; this is done through the Registrar’s Office.

Adding or Dropping a Course

Students who wish to add or drop a class must contact the Registrar’s Office. Changes must be made before the beginning of the third class of the course.

Course Cancellation

St. Mark’s College reserves the right to change any course schedule and cancel a class with an enrollment of fewer than 12 students. Students will be notified by the Registrar in the event of any changes or cancellations.

Credential Completion

The degree requirements in effect at the time of initial registration will ordinarily be followed, provided the student completes the master’s degree within eight years or the certificate or diploma within six years. Consultation with the graduate advisor will ensure that all degree requirements are met in time. It will also assist the student in clarifying goals and planning a study program.
