Adding and Dropping Courses

Within the Add/Drop deadlines as recorded in the Academic Calendar, a student may change course sections, add one or more course(s), or drop one or more course(s), with no change recorded on the permanent record. In every case, the student must submit a properly executed Add/Drop Form. To be properly executed, the form must be signed and dated by the student’s academic advisor and be received in the Registrar’s Office. The student must withdraw from the course within the first 60% of the term, according to the date and time specified in the online Schedule of Classes information and the Academic Calendar. After that date, the student will not be allowed to officially withdraw from a course. If the student has entered into a financial aid agreement, the student should meet with the Financial Aid Office. In every situation, the student is responsible for making sure that the form progresses through each step in the Add/Drop process, whether the process is conducted in person on the main campus or through e-mail and telephone conversations.

Any appropriate refund will be calculated according to the date the Add/Drop Form is received in the Registrar’s Office. Students are subject to a fee each time a course is dropped.

Note: International students are responsible for maintaining appropriate course loads per INS guidelines. All add/drop/withdrawals can only be processed upon approval of the International Office and appropriate academic advisor.
