TSU classes are delivered in one of three ways: on-ground, online/remote, or hybrid. There are two types of online courses: asynchronous and synchronous.

  1. On-Ground
    Your course will require traditional attendance in an on-ground classroom setting and will meet during regularly scheduled times. The course will also list a physical location. The instructional method is conventional (CON).

  2. Online/Remote
    Your course will require virtual attendance and will be delivered asynchronously or synchronously.

    Asynchronous: Your course is online, and you are not required to attend at a specific time or day. It is your responsibility to connect with your instructor and keep up with assignments and announcements in eLearn. The instructional method is web asynchronous (WEB).

    Synchronous: Your course is online, and you are required to attend virtually at a specific time and day. You will be able to connect more with the instructor online with real-time tools like Zoom in eLearn. The instructional method is web synchronous (WSY).

  3. Hybrid
    Your course will require attendance in both on-ground classroom and online virtual environment. Therefore, you will need to follow your syllabi and instructions from your course instructor to know when you will meet online and when you will meet on-ground.  The instructional method is hybrid (HYB).

Dual Enrollment and AP Score Concerns

Typical questions for students with dual enrollment and AP score concerns will be similar to this:

My schedule has classes that I completed at another college (or) My schedule has classes that I completed as a result of my AP score. How can I get my schedule changed?

Students must send their official transcripts and test scores to the university. New first-time freshmen students typically submit the transcript and test score information with Admissions materials. ASC Advisement does not process or officially evaluate any of these documents. The official evaluation is handled by the Records Office.

If you are enrolled in classes you've already taken or may receive college credit for, please let your advisor in the ASC know and complete the Block Schedule Adjustment Form. Your advisor will help you understand more about this at Access Success. The advisor may complete an unofficial review of your transcript via two options to expedite your advisement experience:

  1. For college transcripts, students can go to their college’s website or portal and upload a clear Image of their unofficial transcript in the Block Schedule Adjustment Form for an unofficial review. The image should be saved as a PDF with your last name and t-number.
  2. The second option is regarding AP exam scores. Students can upload AP scores from the College Board website. The image must be clear and uploaded in the Block Schedule Adjustment Form for an unofficial review.
  3. PLEASE CHECK the FRESHMEN page for updates about Access Success and first-year advising.

 
This is a Learning Support workshop. The purpose of the course is to assist students by providing additional workshop support in college-level Mathematics, English, and Reading-intensive courses. Learning Support workshops enhances student skills to achieve academic success in their college-level courses. Placement in Learning support is based on ACT/SAT and ACCUPLACER scores

Some semesters this workshop may not show as a separate math course and may be included in a 4-day MATH 1110 course.

First-time freshmen entering the fall term should consider Summer Completion Academy to resolve learning support requirements before the fall.

Formerly known as Regents Online Campus Collaborative (ROCC) and commonly referred to as Regents Online Degree Program (RODP), the TN eCampus classes are courses offered online. Students enrolled in these courses should be aware that faculty teaching these courses are from all Tennessee Board of Regents Institutions across the State of Tennessee. Students are expected to complete these courses during the semester as outlined in the course syllabi. Courses with a section number and the letter “R” (i.e. R01, R25, R50, etc.) indicate a TN eCampus class and do incur additional fees. Students at TSU will usually see a program restriction error when trying to register for this course type.

PREQ/Test Score is a pre-requisite and test score error. This means that you need to complete a pre-requisite course or fulfill a minimum test score before registering for the course. Co-requisite means you must register for the courses together (i.e. BIOL 1010 ad BIOL 1011). The easiest way to resolve this is to add the course registration numbers (CRNs) using the Add/Drop feature from the Registration menu in myTSU.

If you completed the pre-requisite course but it's not showing on Degree Works or your transcript, you may need a department override.  

 

 

Changes to Your Major/Minor/Concentration and MyTSU Profile


Using the link below, complete a Change  of Major Form. Requests to change or add a major/minor/concentration should be signed by the advisor of your new major/minor/concentration.

Change of Major Form: https://bit.ly/TSUMajorChange

After the form is completed and signed, email it to the Office of the Registrar (Records Office):
Email: records@tnstate.edu

The student should be advised by an Academic Success Advisor before completing the Change of Major Form if they are a first-time freshman, a classified freshman with less than 30 credit hours, a second-year student with less than 59 credit hours, a student with an undeclared major, or a student with an academic standing of probation or post-suspension. All other students should be advised by their department or faculty advisor before changing/declaring a major, minor, or concentration.

Holds, Appeals, and Other Resources


The most common holds students ask us about are First-Time Freshmen and New Transfer Holds (A6), Probation and Suspension Holds (PR/AH), Academic Foci (AF), admissions, and balance holds. We do not process or have access to balance or admissions holds. We can only add, temporarily suspend, or remove the A6, AF, and PR/AH holds. All other holds are processed by other offices.

The A6 or First-Time Freshmen/New Transfer hold is applied to freshmen and new transfer student accounts until the student earns or is credited for a minimum of 30 credit hours. This hold ensures appropriate advising for freshmen and new transfers. It does not affect financial aid, transcript requests, or the student’s ability to make payments via the Bursars Office.

New first-time freshmen entering in the fall are block scheduled their first semester only. For more information about first-time freshmen courses and schedules, visit our first-year advising page here

To view holds:

  1. Log into MyTSU
  2. From the main page, click Banner Services.
  3. From the Main Menu, click Student.
  4. From the Student Menu, click Student Records.
  5. From the Student Records Menu, click View Holds.

If a parking ticket is preventing registration, visit the parking portal to pay or appeal citations

If a balance hold is preventing registration, contact the Bursar’s Office.

Probation and Suspension Holds (PR/AH) prevent students from being able to register. Students with PR and AH holds cannot register for more than 13 credit hours. Specifically, students with PR holds can self-register for no more than 13 credit hours while students with AH holds cannot register for more than 13 credit hours and must be registered by an Academic Success Advisor. All students on probation and suspension are registered for UNIV 1020: Academic Strategies unless the student has earned a passing grade in the course.

Students who receive the 11.999 credit hour limit error usually encounter this error if they have not submitted immunization health records to Student Health Services.

 SAP is a Financial Aid process.

SAP is an acronym for Satisfactory Academic Progress. It is a financial aid process that requires students to earn 66.7% of their total attempted credits to remain eligible for federal and state financial aid, including Stafford Loans. In order to receive financial aid again, the student must complete a SAP Appeal Form. Our office completes Page 3 (max hours/failed GPA) on the SAP Appeal Form for freshmen only
