You can drop a class with no penalty during the first seven class days of the spring or fall term. After that, you can drop until the posted last day to drop for the term (check the academic calendar). There will be a $40 fee for each registration change (see the “Expenses” section of the Catalog for more information). If you want to drop after the posted drop date, you will need to file a petition.
During your normal enrollment period, you will meet with your advisor to register for the next term.

You can modify a course (change the way it is graded) with no penalty during the first seven class days of the spring or fall term. After that, you can modify a course until the posted last day to drop for the term (check the academic calendar). There will be a $40 fee for registration changes (see the “Expenses” section of the Catalog for more information).

When you entered Centenary, you were assigned a primary (major) advisor. If you have changed your major, you may find that you need a new advisor in your major subject area. You may also want to add an advisor for your second major or your minor.
Note: unofficial transcripts are for personal and institutional use only - they are not intended for distribution outside of Centenary. You may print a copy, but you will not be able to send it to someone else. Please order an official copy to send your transcript to another person/school/organization.
Note: access to Bannerweb is required to view your unofficial transcript; also, if you have a hold, you will not be able to view your unofficial transcript and we will not be able to send your official transcript
Note: if you have a hold, we will not be able to send your official transcript until that hold is removed
The diploma awarded to each Centenary College of Louisiana graduate is the original and there are no copies of that diploma. It is important to understand that a replacement diploma will not necessarily have the exact same signatures as the original due to personnel changes and the diploma will indicate that it is a duplicate diploma.
Note: if you are completing the current term but not returning for the next term, please notify our office by sending an email to email@example.com and check for clearance from the offices listed above. We will remove you from your classes for the next term, if you are enrolled in any, and notify IT to disable your accounts. If you are planning on transferring to another school, you will need to order your Centenary transcript and have it sent to the other school.
How to Fill Out Your Degree Plan
1. Make sure you have the correct degree plan:
2. Fill out the top portion with all information.
3. Using the Liberal Arts Exploration lists around page 32 (pages will vary slightly in different catalogs) write the course number (ex., BIOL 101) in each of the required core requirements.
4. The major requirements are listed for you. The BIOL ### means that you get to choose what 300 or 400 level course you want to take. Add the course number beside the ###
(317) If you counted a course as your Core (BIOL 101 or 202) you may count it again in your major. The only difference is that the HRS earned becomes an X as we only count the 4 hours of credit once.
5. The supportive course required for your major are listed. Again, you may double dip and use the course in Core and in supportive. Just put an X for the HRS earned for the supportive course.
6. Each degree requires 20 hours of non-major electives. These non-major electives may not exist or be cross-listed in your major department. For example, you did not take BIOL 321 as part of your major requirements. This course may not be counted as a non major because it is listed as a BIOL class. If you took NEUR 240 you may not count that course as a non-major elective since it is cross-listed with BIOL 240.
S and W Courses
7. Each degree requires an S class and a W class. These are capstone evaluation courses: the S is for Speech and the W is for Writing. Every Centenary graduate is expected to have reached a proficiency in speaking and writing. The S and W courses assure competency in those areas. Just so you know, the world beyond Centenary (grad school, work, etc.) recognize that Centenary graduates already have many positive competencies and many schools and employers prefer Centenary graduates!!!!
2nd Major or Minor
8. This is where you write in the requirements for your second major or minor. The requirements for all majors and minors are listed in the subject section of the catalog.
9. Each degree plan needs the student's signature and the advisor's signature. Each major and each minor must have an advisor and they must sign the degree plan.
10. During the social distancing that is necessary due to the COVID-19 virus, we will accept degree plans without the needed signatures. We then use an email approval as the signature.
Degree Plans Due
11. Degree plans are due when you have reached 80 hours of earned credits. Turn in to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop them by the Registrar's Office
