Add, Drop, or Withdraw from a Class

Students wishing to add or drop a course must complete an Add/Drop form and submit it to the Registrar. Requests must be made during the Add/Drop period. Students must obtain approval from their advisor and the Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs to be added to or drop a course. No schedule changes can be made after the Add/Drop period besides withdrawing from a course altogether. 

Add

Students may add courses without academic penalty within the first two weeks of class. No new courses may be added after two weeks.

Drop

Students may drop courses without academic penalty within the first two weeks of class. Dropped courses do not appear on the student’s transcript.

Withdraw

After week two students may withdraw from courses and receive a “W” on their transcript. After week four students may withdraw from courses with the consent of the instructor, Chair, and Associate VP of Academic Affairs and receive a “WP” (Withdrew Passing) or “WF” (Withdrew Failing) on their transcript. Students who simply stop attending class and completing assignments will receive a grade of “F” for the course. A student may not withdraw from a course after week 8 of the course, unless a valid reason with supporting documentation can be provided along with the approval of the instructor, Chair, and Associate VP of Academic Affairs.
