CLINICAL PASTORAL EDUCATION (CPE)

Payment to accredited providers of CPE is the responsibility of the student. This payment is to be made through the Gardner-Webb University Business Office. Registration for course credit for DSPC 200 is through the School of Divinity.

 

CHARGE REDUCTION POLICY FOR CLASS WITHRAWAL

Registration in the University is considered a contract binding the student for charges for the entire semester. However, it is the policy of Gardner-Webb University to give pro-rata charge reductions through 60% of the enrollment period in the event a student OFFICIALLY WITHDRAWS FROM SCHOOL. On-campus program students (Undergraduate and Divinity) must complete and return a withdrawal form to the Registrar’s Office in order to be officially withdrawn. GOAL and Graduate program students may withdraw by telephoning or emailing the Registrar’s office. A confirmation will be sent when the withdrawal is complete. The withdrawal date is the date this process begins.

 

Reductions will be computed on total charges for tuition, room and board but not on fees. Students leaving school for disciplinary reasons will not be eligible for any reduction and will be liable for the entire semester’s charges. Students who withdraw from individual classes after the drop/add period will receive no charge reduction.

 

For purposes of interpreting this policy the pro-rata charge reduction percentage is equal to the number of calendar days (includes weekends) remaining in the semester divided by the number of calendar days in the semester. No charge reduction will be given after the 60% period of enrollment for the semester.

 

When a student’s charges are reduced, Federal, State, Institutional and Noninstitutional Aid will be adjusted in accordance with the regulations governing the respective programs. Please contact the University Business Office for current regulations concerning these programs. Leaving the University without officially withdrawing may result in a student forfeiting all financial aid and, thus, becoming responsible for the entire balance.

 

DELINQUENT STUDENT ACCOUNTS

A student with outstanding financial obligations may be prevented from registering for the following semester. A student will not be allowed to participate in commencement exercises or receive a diploma, nor will transcripts be released, until all financial obligations are satisfied. Delinquent accounts may be referred to collection agencies and/or credit bureaus. Financial obligations include, but are not limited to, student account balance, parking, disciplinary and library fines, and returned checks.

 

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

Gardner-Webb University admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic and other school-administered programs.

 

GRADUATE ASSISTANTSHIPS

GOALS FOR ASSISTANTSHIPS

 

  1. To provide academically strong graduate students with financial assistance and practical opportunities to increase skills and knowledge in their respective fields.
  2. To provide mature work assistance to appropriate programs and offices within the university while giving graduate programs a tool with which to attract strong students to Gardner-Webb.

 

POLICIES FOR ASSISTANTSHIPS

  1. Applications for assistantships may be obtained from and submitted to the Office of the Associate Provost for Schools.

  4. Recipients of fellowships and/or scholarships may also receive assistantships.
  5. Individual assistantship contracts must be re-evaluated yearly.
  6. Service related to assistantships should follow the academic schedule and may not exceed 20 hours per week.
  7. Outside employment must not interfere with performance of duties of the graduate assistantships and may be a factor in hiring decisions.
