Adding, Dropping and Withdrawing from Classes


Students may add or drop classes in their schedules with the help of faculty advisors. Classes may be added or dropped within the first two days of the term only. During the next three days, courses may be added and dropped by picking up a Change in Registration form from the Office of the Registrar. After the first week, however, only the Registrar’s Office may change a student’s schedule.

Students must seek written instructor approval before adding a class after the first two days of a term. Adding a course will require the instructor’s signature approval during this three day period. Once the signature approval is returned to the Registrar’s Office, the course will be added to the student’s schedule. Dropping a course during this period will be completed in the Registrar’s Office. Students may withdraw from classes through the “last day to withdraw” date in a term.To withdraw from classes students need written consent both from their faculty advisor and from the instructor of the class from which they wish to withdraw.

When the deadline for withdrawing from a course has expired, students may withdraw but will receive a grade of ‘WP’ for withdraw passing or ‘WF’ for withdraw failing. ‘WP’ grades do not impact cumulative GPA. ‘WF’ grades calculate into cumulative GPA the same as an ‘F’ grade.

 Financial aid will NOT be adjusted after the first week of the term regardless of changes in registration.
