Dimensions Program Policy

Each student, including every TUG transfer student, is required to enroll for a Dimensions course each semester of full-time enrollment at Gardner-Webb or until a minimum of two credit hours (four semesters) has been earned. Students who meet requirements earn 1/2 credit hour each term. Part-time students must earn 1/2 credit hour for every 15 credit hours earned at Gardner-Webb or until a minimum of two credit hours (four semesters) has been earned. Transfer students will be enrolled for a Dimensions course each semester of full-time enrollment at Gardner-Webb until they graduate or until a minimum of two credit hours (four semesters) has been earned. Students must attend at least 10 programs per semester to receive credit. (The required Dimensions courses are numbered 111-114; elective Dimensions courses are numbered 115-116.) Students receiving an “F” in Dimensions must repeat the course the following semester. Students who fail a second time will receive a letter of warning. Three grades of “F” in Dimensions will result in being placed on Dimensions probation. In order to be removed from Dimensions probation, the student must register for and satisfactorily complete both a Dimensions course by arrangement (20 hours of community service) and the regularly scheduled Dimensions during the following academic term. Students on probation who fail either the Dimensions course by arrangement or the regularly scheduled Dimensions will be suspended from the University.
