Drop-Add / Withdrawal

Drop/Add Period

Students may add 4-week module classes during the first 4 calendar days of the term. Students may drop full semester classes during the first 14 calendar days of the semester. Courses in 4-week modules may be dropped during the first 7 calendar days of the session. Students in classes which last less than 5 weeks must drop or add by the end of the first day of class. If a student drops officially they will not appear on the students transcript. Students should always discuss any class schedule changes with their advisor. After the official add period no class may be added without the consent of the instructor and the appropriate director.

Withdrawing from a Course

Withdrawal from a class is permitted only through the end of registration for the following semester. The withdrawal procedure is as follows: 1) Secure a withdrawal form from the Registrar’s Office; 2) Fill out the form and secure the signature of your professor; and 3) Return the form to the Registrar’s Office. Students should consult the Registrar’s Office or check the Academic Calendar and in the Academic Catalog to determine the last day of withdrawal. Failure to withdraw or to change a class properly will result in a student receiving a failing grade for the class originally begun.

Withdrawal from the College

To officially withdraw from the College, a student must begin the process in the Registrar’s Office. The student must fill out a formal notice of withdrawal and obtain the signature of the Director of Admissions. Refunds will be made only to students withdrawing from school (not individual classes) on the prorated schedule published in the Academic catalog.

Drop-Add Policy

The drop/add period is the period following initial registration when students may make class schedule adjustments. Drop/add dates are 72 hours after the scheduled course begins. Courses can be dropped or added during drop/add without penalty. Failure to attend a class does not constitute a drop. The drop/add procedure is as follows:

1) Secure a drop/withdrawal form from the Registrar’s Office.
2) Fill out the form and secure the signature of your instructor.
3) Return the form to the Registrar’s Office. Students should consult the Registrar’s Office or check the Academic Calendar and in the Academic Catalog to determine the last day of withdrawal.

Failure to drop/withdraw or to change a class properly will result in a student receiving a failing grade for the class. To add a course, students should register to attend the desired class with the Registrar’s office. Students can petition the drop/add policy for these circumstances:

● Students with disabilities who need to drop a course due to disability-related reasons
● Students who can document extenuating circumstances that have occurred since the course began
● Students who need to drop after the last day of classes who are seeking a retroactive drop that is not for medical reasons

Students who wish to petition the drop / add policy shall submit their petition request in writing to the Registrar’s office.
