As stated on the dual credit application, "Students will need to disclose in college applications that they have taken college/dual credit coursework. It is the responsibility of the student to contact his/her prospective post-secondary institution and to provide necessary information so the institution may determine if the dual enrollment credits that have been earned are transferable. While all credits earned will be recognized by Regental universities, the institutions cannot guarantee transferability of credits outside the system."
The following universities are part of the South Dakota Regental system: Black Hills State University, Dakota State University, Northern State University, South Dakota School of Mines & Technology, South Dakota State University, University of South Dakota.
To request an official transcript listing the classes you have taken at Black Hills State University, contact the Registrar's Office at (605) 642-6092.
Adding a Class
The deadline to add a class for Fall 2016 is first day of the semester - August 22nd, 2016. The student must be already accepted to the high school dual credit program. To add a Math or English course, the student must also meet the required minimum testing scores. The student may then complete an Add/Drop Form, obtain the required signatures, and submit it to Registrar’s Office at BHSU.
Credit Limit Waiver
High school students participating in the Dual Credit program may request to register for up to a maximum of nine (9) credit hours
each term. Students may request a waiver of the nine (9) credit hour limit by completing and submitting
this petition to your
campus’s Dual Credit Contact.
Dropping a Class
Dropping a High School Dual Credit class is not recommended. However, we understand that, sometimes, circumstances warrant this being the best choice of action.
In order to drop a class, a student MUST contact the high school counselor to initiate this process. Check with your counselor to determine how dropping a class may impact your high school grade for the class as well as your overall high school grade point average. After discussing all possible actions, if it is decided that a class should be dropped, the student must complete an Add/Drop Form, obtain the required signatures, and submit it to the Registrar’s Office at BHSU by the following deadline:
Dropping a Class before Census Date –
Individual classes can be dropped for a full refund if dropped prior to the course census date. The census date is based on 10% of the total class meeting time. The "standard" course census date for this semester is listed above. Classes with non-standard meeting dates may have different census dates. A class dropped by this date will be completely removed from the student’s record.
Last Date to Drop a Class with a "W" grade -
Dropping a class after Census: Individual classes dropped after the census date will be assigned a grade of "WD" (withdraw) up to the 70% meeting date "Withdraw" deadline. This grade is only a notation and does not negatively affect your college grade point average. If a student is enrolled in multiple classes and drops only part of their schedule, there is no refund of tuition/fees. A student is limited to no more than 6 grades of "WD" throughout their undergraduate career, within the SDBOR system of schools. The last date to withdraw for a "WD" grade this semester is listed above.
Dropping ALL classes after Census: If a student is enrolled in only one class and drops that class or is enrolled in multiple classes and drops all classes within the SD Board of Regents system, they will be withdrawn from school for the semester. Grades of "WW" will be assigned to all classes with a withdrawal date noted on the transcript for the semester. A pro-rated schedule to credit tuition/fees is used to determine the amount of the refund up to 60% of the scheduled class meeting. Between the 60% and 70% date, withdraws are allowed, but there is no refund.
After the Last Date to Drop a Class with a "W" grade listed above, students must not drop or withdraw. Instead, they must accept the final grade as assigned by the instructor.
Students who drop courses, withdraw or are administratively withdrawn, suspended or expelled from the Regental system within the drop/add period receive a 100 percent refund of tuition and per credit hour fees. Students who withdraw or are administratively withdrawn, suspended, or expelled from the Regental system after the date the first 10 percent of the term ends for the period of enrollment for which they are assessed may be entitled to a refund. No refunds will be processed for dropped courses after the drop/add period. Total withdrawals refunds will be based on a percentage of the remaining portion of the semester.
