It depends on when you drop the class and how many classes you drop.
- If you drop a class before or during the Drop/Add period that changes the tuition and fees hour bracket, you will get a refund for the difference in the sum of tuition and fees for your residency classification (see below). For example, if you drop before or during the Drop/Add period and your enrolled hours changes from 12 to 9 hours, you will receive the 100% of the difference between the 12+ hour tuition and fees and 9-11 hours tuition and fees. The Drop/Add period for a fall or spring term is the first five days of classes.
- If you drop a class after the Drop/Add period, you will not receive a refund.
- If you drop all of your classes, it is considered a withdrawal and the refund is based on the date of withdrawal. Details can be found on the Withdrawal Policy page.
Hometown information comes from the active, permanent address provided by the student. NC Newspapers use this hometown information to publish Chancellor's and Dean's Lists. Also, students who have chosen to have privacy restrictions will not appear on these lists.
The grade-point average (GPA) is a general measure of the student's academic achievement while at Appalachian. The GPA is determined by dividing the total number of quality points earned by the total number of quality hours attempted ("quality points" and "quality hours" are derived from courses graded A-F or WF). GPAs are not rounded but are truncated to the hundredths place so if you divide 163.1 quality points by 41 quality hours, you will get 3.978. This GPA will be considered 3.97. The GPA is computed only on the basis of coursework taken at Appalachian. You can use DegreeWorks to calculate your GPA.
At the end of each grading period, grades are given in each course by letters which indicate the quality of work done by the student.
A excellent, 4 grade points per semester hour.
A- excellent, 3.7 grade points per semester hour.
B+ above average, 3.3 grade points per semester hour.

D+ below average but passing, 1.3 grade points per semester hour.
D below average but passing, 1 grade point per semester hour.

The Chancellor's list was created to provide higher recognition to those full-time students who receive a grade-point average of 3.85 or higher in any semester. An undergraduate student who carries 12 hours or more of coursework on which grade points are computed and who attains a grade-point average of 3.85 or better is placed on the Chancellor's list of honor students for that semester. Only those courses earning credit toward graduation will be used in determining eligiblity for honors.
An undergraduate student who carries 12 - 14 hours of coursework on which grade points are computed and who attains a grade-point average of 3.45 or better is placed on the dean's list of honor students for that semester. An undergraduate student who carries 15 hours or more of coursework on which grade points are computed and who attains a grade-point average of 3.25 or better is placed on the dean's list of honor students for that semester. Only those courses earning credit toward graduation will be used in determining eligibility for honors.
