- Language courses for incoming exchange students
* Saturdays are potential class days, and can be used for examinations. Students should therefore wait until examination dates are published (15 days after classes start) before planning vacations.
* Undergraduate exchange students can choose from six other regional campuses. These unique campuses offer the same academic curriculum as the Paris campus, but integrate area studies into their programmes. Generally half of the student body comes from the region concerned.
As class participation is an integral part of the academic programme, attendance in class is mandatory. Any absence must be justified to the professor and the administrative team responsible for the programme of study. More than three absences per semester will result in automatic default ("défaillance") of the course.
* No Add and Drop Policy:
Once the semester begins, students will not be allowed to cancel (“drop”) a course from their registered semester course load, except under exceptional circumstances. If a student abandons the class, a default will automatically appear on their final transcript.
Students are not authorized to audit classes at Sciences Po. They must be registered in the course in order to attend.
