A Darton State College student who wishes to enroll temporarily in another college or
university must obtain prior permission to do so and should request that a letter of
authorization be sent to the Director of Admissions of that college or university. The Darton
State College Registrar may grant the permission and issue the letter of authorization.
Students requesting transient permission must have exited learning support and have at
least a 2.0 GPA and request courses as part of their curriculum at Darton State College.
Credit earned while in a transient status may be transferred back to Darton State College
provided such credit carries a grade of “C” or better and satisfies curricular requirements. It
is the student's responsibility to request that a transcript of credits be sent back to Darton
State College.
At the beginning of each semester, students are classified as follows: freshman,
sophomore, junior or senior. Students who have earned fewer than 30 semester hours of
college credit are classified as freshmen. A student must have successfully earned 30
semester hours of college credit to be changed to sophomore status. Those students who
are enrolled in the bachelors degree program will be classified as juniors at 60 semester
hours of earned credit and as seniors when they reach 90 semester hours of earned credit.
Within the accepted bounds of academic freedom and sound educational practice,
faculty members are free to present their subject matter as they deem best. This includes
the number and types of tests and examinations. Faculty are expected, however, to give
sufficient evaluation opportunities to arrive at a fair assessment of the students’ command
of the subject. The College designates the final four days of each semester for final
examinations. Most courses will have a final examination.
The College also gives the Regents’ Test, CLEP Examinations, COMPASS tests, and
Residual ACT exams through the Testing Center. Licensing boards in the health fields
require graduates of these programs to pass an examination before receiving the
appropriate license.
