Students can drop and/or add courses without penalty within the first ten days of the start of fall or spring semester of the traditional schedule. (The Drop/Add period is different for courses with other lengths.) After classes begin, however, students must obtain the signatures of the following people:
The instructor of the course the student is requesting to drop and/or the instructor of the course the student is requesting to add.
An academic advisor - either the student's assigned academic advisor or an advisor from Academic Support Services.
Dropping A Course After the Drop Deadline
If a student would like to drop a course after the add/drop course deadline, they must file an appeal and follow the directions listed:
Pick up an appeal form from OneStop or Academic Advisement Offices
Complete the rationale portion for dropping a course after the deadline. Tell students to be as specific as possible.
Visit the instructor of the course they wish to drop and ask for a signature
Visit your advisor or an Academic Advisor in Tower 2138, 2140, & 2144
Turn the completed paperwork in to the Registrar
The appeal will be reviewed by the Appeals Committee, and the student, instructor and advisor will be notified of the decision. All decisions are final.
Note: All courses that are dropped after the add/drop period may result as a 'W' or withdrawal on the student's permanent transcript.
