Extra Course ("Extra")

A course declared as "extra" is not included in the calculation of the GPA, nor does it count toward the degree requirements. It is included in the GPA calculation of "distinction" designations on the degree. The grade received will be included on the academic record. Students must designate courses as "extra" in the term or session the course is taken and prior to the last day for withdrawing from courses without penalty of failure.
