Dropping and Adding Courses

Courses may be added only during the first two weeks of each semester.

Courses may be dropped during the first four weeks of the semester without appearing on the student’s transcript. Students who drop a course after the second week of classes may not add one in its place.

Students who drop a course between the fifth and eighth week of classes receive a W/F (Withdraw/Fail). After eight weeks the mark is F. If there are extenuating circumstances, a student may submit to the registrar a written petition to have the grade changed. The petition is reviewed by the appropriate staff members, and, if approved, a W/P (Withdraw/Pass) for the course appears on the student’s transcript.
