Q: What is the average GPA earned by DEHP students in their KSU classes?
A: In 2010-11, the average GPA among DEHP students was a 3.48, earned in an average of 19 credit hours. DEHP students as a group do exceptionally well.
Q: Does a one-semester college course equal a full unit of a high school course?
A: Yes. Each 3- or 4-credit college course equals 1 Carnegie unit. A student needing 1 unit of high school English in his or her senior year of high school would only need to take one semester of college English to satisfy the high school graduation requirement.
Q: I have signed up for the KSU classes that I need to graduate from high school. Can I take additional KSU courses as well?
A: Yes. You must choose courses from the Accel/MOWR directory in your Advising Handbook. If you choose a course that is not on the Accel/MOWR-approved list, you will be responsible for paying the tuition for that course.
Q: I am afraid I am not doing well in one of my classes. Should I withdraw from it?
A: If you need this class to meet high school graduation requirements, you will need to contact your high school counselor immediately to discuss your options for fulfilling the graduation requirement. If you do not need the course OR the credits for graduation, you may wish to withdraw prior to the “last day to withdraw from a class without academic penalty,” as published by the Registrar’s Office Academic calendar. You must notify Dr. Kinnick and your counselor and then withdraw by completing the online withdrawal form at the Registrar’s website.
Q: If I did not take an Honors section in the fall, can I register for an Honors section in the spring?
A: Yes. All DEHP students are eligible for honors sections either semester.
Q: What grade do I need to make in MATH 1113 in order to take MATH 1190 in the spring?
A: You must make a grade of B or better in MATH 1113 in order to take MATH 1190-Caculus. You may register for MATH 1190 during Priority Registration, but you will be required to drop MATH 1190 if you earn a grade lower than B in MATH 1113.
Q: What grade do I need to make in ENGL 1101 to take ENGL 1102 in the Spring?
A: You must make a grade of C or better in ENGL 1101 in order to take ENGL 1102 during the spring semester. You may register for ENGL 1102 during Priority Registration, but you will be required to drop ENGL 1102 if you earn a grade lower than C in ENGL 1101.
Q: I am worried I am not making B’s in my current classes. Can I lose my HOPE scholarship?
A: Yes. Your initial HOPE eligibility is determined by the grades on your high school transcript, which includes your dual enrollment grades. Once you have graduated from high school, if your overall GPA was a 3.0 or higher and you received HOPE, your HOPE GPA will reset to “0” and only those grades earned after high school graduation will count toward future eligibility. However, if you graduate from high school and fall short of a 3.0 and do not initially receive HOPE, your dual enrollment grades will count toward the 30-credit hour checkpoint at which students are re-evaluated for HOPE eligibility. This policy, set by the Georgia Student Finance Commission, is intended to help students reach the 30-credit hour checkpoint sooner. However, if your DEHP grades are poor, getting to the checkpoint sooner does not necessarily help you reclaim HOPE, because you must have a 3.0. .
Q: What happens if I fail a class?
A: If the course is a graduation requirement, you must return to your high school to complete all
or a portion of the class not fulfilled through your course work at Kennesaw State University. If
you pre-register for a KSU class that requires the course you failed as a pre-requisite, you must
drop the class during the Drop/Add period
Q: What do I do to remain at KSU after I graduate from high school?
A: You will need to complete a readmission form. We will provide information about readmitting
as a freshman at your fall advising session in October.
Q: How do I order a transcript to be sent to another college?
A: Log on to Owl Express, click on Registration and Student Records, and then Request
Printed/Official Transcript. An online form will appear that you will need to complete.
