Changes in Registration
During the first five academic days of each semester, students may revise their class schedules in the Registrar's Office without the formal drop/add procedure. However, students wanting to add a course which is already at capacity enrollment must obtain the signature of the instructor on an add slip, then return the slip to the Registrar's Office by the normal deadline for adding courses. After the initial five-day period, students must follow the standard procedure for dropping and adding courses.
Adding a course: To add a course, students must obtain a drop/add slip from the Office of the Registrar. The effective date of change is the date the form was submitted to the Office of the Registrar. Signatures of instructors and the adviser must be obtained on the form. A full-semester course can be added through the 10th academic day of the semester and half-semester, or "block" courses may be added through the sixth academic day of the block.
Dropping a course: To drop a course, students must obtain a drop/add slip from the Office of the Registrar. The effective date of change in registration is the date the form was submitted to the Office of the Registrar. Signatures of instructors and the adviser must be obtained on the form. A full-semester course may be dropped through the sixth academic day after mid-semester break. A block course may be dropped through the 20th academic day of the block. After the final deadline, a full-semester course cannot be dropped.
Full-semester classes dropped after the 10th academic day and block or summer classes dropped after the fifth academic day will be noted on the student academic transcript as "DR" (dropped course). Students dropping ALL classes (withdrawing from college) after the aforementioned dates will have "W" noted on the transcript for each dropped course.
Students with serious and prolonged illness or other serious emergencies wishing to drop a course after a deadline may appeal in writing to the Committee on Student Academic Performance and Procedures for consideration. Supporting documentation from medical personnel, instructors and/or advisers is beneficial. A student who drops a course without permission receives a failing grade in that course.
