Add/Drop Policies for Fall and Spring Semesters only. (Summer deadlines are different!).
Once instruction begins - students must attend the course they want to add and speak to the instructor. Each instructor has their own policies on which students to add. For upper division Economics courses, declared Econ Majors usually have priority.
From Add Deadline to Census Date: (2nd - 4th week of instruction). Submit an add petition for approval by the instructor and department chair that details and provides documentation of the serious and compelling reasons why you were not able to add by the end of the second week.
After Census Date: (after the 4th week). Submit an add petition for approval by the instructor, department chair, and College Dean that details and provides documentation that a Department/University administrative error prevented your enrollment in the class by the Census Date. Take approved petition to Admissions and Records. NOTE: The Instructor, Department Chair OR College Dean may refuse to sign the petition. Adds are not guaranteed.
Until the Drop Deadline (end of second week of instruction). Drop via My Sac State.
From Drop Deadline Until Census Date: (end of fourth week of instruction). Submit a drop petition for instructor and Department Chair approval. The Department will process the drop.
From Census Date to End of 6th Week of Instruction. Submit a drop petition for instructor and Department Chair approval and take approved petition to Admissions and Records. Serious and compelling reasons must be given. A grade of "W"will be assigned.
After the 6th Week of Instruction. Submit a drop petition for instructor, Department Chair, and College Dean approval and take the approved petition to Admissions and Records. Drops will be approved only if career-related or medical reasons beyond the control of the student are documented. A grade of "W" will be assigned.
Deadlines for Summer Session and Winter Intersession are not the same! The process is the same - the timelines are different.

The letter "I" stands for Incomplete Authorized. This indicates that a portion of required course work has not been completed and evaluated in the prescribed course session dates due to unforeseen but fully justified reasons and that there is still a possibility of earning credit.* It is the responsibility of the student to bring pertinent information to the attention of the instructor and to determine from the instructor the remaining course requirements that must be satisfied to remove the Incomplete.
Agreement as to the conditions for removal of the Incomplete will be in writing, signed by the instructor, student, and the department chair (or designee) and placed on file with the
appropriate academic department until the Incomplete is removed or the time limit passed. A final grade is assigned when the work agreed upon has been completed and evaluated.
An "I" (Incomplete Authorized) should not be assigned when it is necessary for the student to
attend additional class meetings to complete the course requirements. An Incomplete must be made up within 12 months of the end of the term in which it was assigned. This limitation prevails whether or not the student maintains continuous enrollment. Failure to complete the assigned work will result in an Incomplete being changed to an "F" or "NC" on the academic transcript.
At the time of degree evaluation, the degree will not be awarded if a student has any outstanding "I" grades which, if calculated as an "F" would cause the student's grade point average to fall below the minimum level for graduation in any grade point requirement (CSUS, overall, major, minor or General Education).
Incomplete grades are not considered for deletion by the Academic Standards Committee.
*Note: Students in the military reserve whose units go on active duty during or around the final examinations period are eligible to receive an "I".
The student must discuss eligibility for an incomplete grade with the instructor prior to the last day of class.
I. General Information
A. Reinstatement/Readmission of Academically Disqualified or Dismissed Students in Economics
These guidelines shall will be applied to each student upon application for Reinstatement or Readmission.
Student must submit a completed petition with all supporting documents. Incomplete petitions will not be reviewed. The student must submit a checklist as a cover sheet for his/her petition (see attached page). These documents include those required by the University. In addition to these, the student would be required to submit a completed major advising worksheet (see attached page).
Prior to submitting a petition for reinstatement/readmission as an Economics major, students must have completed the following courses (or equivalents) with a "C" or better):
1A: Introduction to Macroeconomic Analysis ECON
1B: Introduction to Microeconomic Analysis
1: Introduction to Statistics
One course satisfying major core requirements (ECON 100A, ECON 100B, ECON 140, ECON 113, or ECON 101) completed at CSUS.
One additional economics course (core or elective) completed at CSUS.
The Department will not approve petitions for reinstatement more than once. If a student is reinstated as an Economics major, then he/she will not be considered for reinstatement again as an Economics major. This restriction will be waived if a student has 9 units or fewer to complete the requirements for the Economics major. In such cases, the Department will not approve reinstatement more than twice, without exception.
The Department will not approve petitions for readmission more than once. If a student is readmitted as an Economics major, then he/she will not be considered for readmission again as an Economics major. This restriction will be waived if a student has 9 units or fewer to complete the requirements for the Economics major. In such cases, the Department will not approve readmission more than twice, without exception.
The Petition for Reinstatement can be obtained from the Admissions and Records Office (Lassen Hall).
University policies stipulate that students who are dismissed shall not be considered
for enrollment at the University for at least one semester following dismissal. Students who are academically dismissed should meet with an academic advisor for advice on developing a plan to remedy the conditions which led to dismissal so that return to the University is possible. After their mandatory interruption in enrollment, students who were dismissed must submit an Appeal for Readmission Following Dismissal to the University Academic Action Committee. The student's application must include all required documents including the appeal form, letter, schedule, course list, and GE evaluation. The appeal must be submitted to the Economics Department prior to the department's readmission deadline (see deadlines below). The Appeal for Readmission after Dismissal form is available from the Admissions and Records Office (Lassen Hall).
The Department requires the submission of the reinstatement/readmission checklist
with all required material. Reinstated students must meet with an undergraduate Economics advisor to develop a plan of study. In Addition, as outlined in the University Probation and Reinstatement Policy, reinstated students will be placed on an academic contract which may stipulate maximum units, specific courses and achievement levels. Failure to meet the conditions of the reinstatement contract and/or failure to achieve a subsequent semester GPA of 2.0 or higher will result in academic dismissal. Students not recommended for reinstatement by the Economics department may be considered for University reinstatement into a different major when approved by the department offering that major. Students reinstated as undeclared shall not be allowed to enroll in upper division major courses during the period of the contract without the permission of the department chair or designee for that major. Students whose petitions are approved are subject to review each semester until the CSUS GPA and overall GPA reach the minimum standard of 2.0.
