-- [ Page 4 ] --

● Only students who have established themselves in good academic standing (at least a 2.0) at Babson will be permitted to enroll in a space-available fifth course for additional credits.

● Students on academic probation or returning from academic suspension cannot enroll in a space-available fifth course for additional credits.

● There will be an additional limitation on first-year students and new transfer students. Those students will need to achieve a 2.7 or better GPA in their first semester in order to enroll in a space-available fifth course for their second semester.

● Only students who have settled their semester bills will be permitted to enroll in a space-available fifth course option.

● Class Deans’ e-forms.

● Students should consult with their Class Dean in Academic Services when making this decision and know that additional tuition charges will apply if students receive approval to take more than 20 credits.

● Payment in full is required before registration for overload courses.

The Office of Academic Services will decide if students qualify for exceeding 20 credits based on courses selected,    the student’s ability to handle Babson course work, and other appropriate factors.

Additional tuition may be applied as defined in the Tuition Policies section of the Undergraduate Handbook.

Students are charged for an overload based on the number of credits above 20 the student takes. For example, if students overload to 21 credits, their tuition will be the flat-rate tuition charge plus an additional 1-credit charge.

If the students overload to 22 credits, their tuition will be flat-rate plus 2 credits.


Babson College students may not audit a class. Babson only offers this option to senior citizens from Wellesley and Needham. Additional information on the senior citizen policy can be found on the Registrar’s ​ website at​ww.babson.edu/registrar​ w.


Students may request permission to take a maximum of 12 credits off-campus exclusive of official cross-registration or Babson-approved study abroad/away programs. Students may take those credits over winter or summer sessions or enroll in up to 4 credits per semester during the fall and spring semesters.

Additionally, students may take up to 4 of those 12 credits following the last period of enrollment at Babson or in a Babson-approved program. International students who plan to take their final credits off campus should first consult an international student adviser in the Glavin Office of Multicultural & International Education to learn how this may affect their immigration status.

Students interested in taking off-campus courses should submit an off-campus request e-form, available on the Babson Hub, along with a course description, syllabus, and rationale for their interest in taking the proposed course. Students should wait to enroll in the course until they receive approval from the Office of Academic Services. The Office of Academic Services evaluates requests to take courses off-campus based on the rigor of the course and the rationale of students submitting the request. The Office of Academic Services will only consider courses from accredited colleges and universities. Likewise, the Office of Academic Services will only approve courses that do not overlap with courses offered at Babson. Course approval for one student does not constitute approval for every student. In addition, students should plan ahead to take their required business and liberal arts courses at Babson College and not off-campus.

Once approved, students must earn a grade of C or higher in order for the credits to transfer to Babson.

Students’ grades from off-campus courses will not transfer to Babson College or factor into students’ cumulative GPA; rather students’ Babson transcript will simply reflect the credits earned for the course. To receive course credit, students must submit an official transcript from the college or university attended to the Office of Academic Services, 220 Hollister Hall, Babson College, Babson Park, MA 02457, or have an official transcript sent electronically through an encrypted service offered by the other school’s registrar.

Babson College’s flat-rate tuition does not cover the costs of off-campus courses.


Students who take courses elsewhere in their final semester need to be aware of the deadlines for grades to be submitted to the Babson College Registrar in order to meet Commencement requirements. Babson College must receive spring semester grades by 4:30pm on the Tuesday before Commencement. If grades are not received, Babson will list students in the Commencement program with May graduates, but graduation honors will not be designated, and students will receive an empty diploma case at the ceremony. After Commencement, students will receive a diploma upon completion of all degree requirements, will be ranked with all graduates once all grades are in the system, and will be awarded honors, if applicable.


Students may take a leave of absence (LOA) for a specified period not in excess of one continuous academic year. To take an LOA, students should talk with their Class Dean, Residence Education (if they live on campus), and Student Financial Services to understand the implications of taking time off. To take an LOA, students must complete and receive approval for a Petition for Separation, available through the Babson    Hub. If students separate from the College after the end of add/drop, the College considers this a "withdrawal from the College" (see Withdrawal from the College).

All LOAs carry a specific expiration date. Babson College is not required to remind students of the expiration date. If students return on or before the specified date, they automatically resume all normal rights and privileges of Babson students, provided they met all required notification dates and financial and registration procedures. Students taking an LOA must still complete their Babson degree within three years of their initially expected graduation date (traditionally a seven-year time frame).

Students may choose to or need to separate from Babson College for longer than one year and/or with no anticipated return. To withdraw from the College, students must complete and be approved for a Petition for Separation available through the Class Deans’ e-forms on the Babson Hub. If students separate from the College after the end of the add/drop period, this qualifies as withdrawal from the College, not a Leave of Absence.

Students must go through the application for readmission process to return to Babson following a withdrawal from the College. This readmission process consists of a letter of request to Academic Services.

Students must address in this letter their reasons for wanting to return, how students addressed any issues that resulted in the withdrawal while away, and how students will use on- or off-campus resources to aid in their academic performance and/or other concerns while back on campus. In order to qualify for registration, housing, and financial aid, students must submit the written request to Academic Services by

the following dates:

–  –  –

Meeting the above dates ensures participation in the registration process for the upcoming semester. Upon returning to campus, students have three years from their originally expected graduation date to complete their degree (traditionally, a 7 year time-frame).

International students in F-1/J-1 immigration status who plan to withdraw from Babson College must notify an international student adviser in the Glavin Office of Multicultural & International Education (Glavin Office) before separation from Babson. The student’s record in the Student & Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) may be terminated upon separation, and the student may lose their eligibility to remain in the United States.

For information on the financial implications of withdrawing from the College, please refer to the Tuition Policies section of the handbook.

Babson College endeavors to provide a safe and healthy living and learning environment in which all qualified students can participate in the College’s programs and activities and successfully pursue their academic, personal, social, and emotional development.

The College recognizes that students may experience medical issues which limit their ability to function safely or successfully as students. The College offers a variety of medical, academic, and administrative resources to assist and support students in such situations, and makes reasonable accommodations to allow students with documented disabilities to have equal access to College programs and activities.

When a student’s personal well-being may be at risk or when a student experiences a medical issue that may prevent the student from participating in the College’s programs and activities regardless of accommodation, the student is encouraged to consider a voluntary medical withdrawal from the College. Although students remain eligible to take other types of leave in accordance with applicable College policies and procedures, a voluntary medical withdrawal may carry certain advantages, including more flexible withdrawal timelines, less disruption to scholarships and funding, and tuition/housing refunds as determined by appropriate College officials.

When the College becomes aware of a student who is unable to safely participate in the College’s programs and activities regardless of accommodation or who presents a high probability of substantial harm to health or safety, the College may also consider the appropriateness of involuntary medical withdrawal from the College and/or emergency interim medical withdrawal according to the standards and procedures described in this Policy.

Student conduct that violates the College’s Community Standards remains subject to the Student Conduct Process regardless of whether such conduct violation results from or is exacerbated by a medical condition. Actions taken pursuant to this Policy do not affect the student’s obligation to comply with other College policies or, where applicable, sanctions to which the student may be subject as a result of any violation of such policies.

This Policy is designed to ensure that students are given individualized attention, support, care, and consideration in addressing medical issues that may arise or escalate during matriculation. The College will apply this Policy to all students in a nondiscriminatory manner using a flexible and individualized process to facilitate student success. Decision makers acting under the Policy will make determinations on the basis of objective evidence of student behavior and reasonable judgments based on professional assessments and current medical knowledge—not on the knowledge or belief that a student may be an individual with a disability.

Whenever a College official is referenced in this Policy, such reference shall include another official designated to carry out such official’s duties in their absence or the person who otherwise assumes such duties.

2. VOLUNTARY MEDICAL WITHDRAWAL (“VMW”) When a student’s personal well-being may be at risk, or when a student experiences a medical issue that may prevent them from participating in the College’s programs and activities regardless of accommodation, the student is encouraged to consider a VMW. The VMW process is designed to be reasonable and flexible, and to proceed as quickly as possible to allow a student experiencing difficulties due to a medical condition to receive the care, support, and treatment that they need.
