Add / Drop / Withdraw From a Course
Changes to Your Course Registration
Once you register, you may change your registration (add/drop) according to the deadlines in our Academic Calendar. We encourage you to consult with your advisor before adding or dropping courses—they may have helpful advice about course availability in future terms or tell you more about certain financial aid considerations related to changes in your registration.
Tuition and fees are 100% refundable if a student drops a course according to the following guidelines:
- 12-week courses: drop prior to the end of the second week of classes
(applies to 10-week Summer Term courses)
- 6-week courses: drop prior to the end of the first week of classes
- Learning Contracts: The Registrar’s Office will notify registered students of the last dates to drop and withdraw
Weekend course/Intensive courses: see Special Add/Drop Deadlines.
Note: For purposes of adding or dropping a standard 12-week course, the end of the week is considered to be Friday. During the Summer Term, we offer 10-week courses instead of 12-week schedule courses as our standard.
To add a 6-week or 12-week course during the official add/drop period, contact your advisor or complete the Course Add/Drop Form. If the form is closed, then the add/drop period for the term has closed. Please contact your advisor for assistance.
To drop a course during the official add/drop period, complete the Course Add/Drop Form. If the form is closed, then the add/drop period for the term has closed. Please contact your advisor for assistance.
Students who remain registered after the drop period are financially responsible for all tuition and fees. Officially dropped courses are not recorded on transcripts. Failure to officially drop will result in an AF grade (administrative failure), which is maintained on the official student record and included in the grade point average (GPA). An AF may also result in an unpaid account balance due to the College if federal financial aid has been received.
Withdrawing from Courses
A withdrawal is a change in registration after the official add/drop deadline. A Withdrawal (W) will be noted on a transcript indicating that an individual did not complete the course. To withdraw a course during the official withdrawal period, complete the Course Withdrawal Form. If the form is closed, then the withdrawal period for the term has closed. Please contact your advisor for assistance.
The date of official withdrawal is the day that the completed form is received by the College. There is NO refund of tuition or fees for withdrawals (financial aid recipients please refer to the Tuition Refund Policies). If a student is receiving financial aid, (grants and/or loans), review how withdrawing will affect your aid. The withdrawal may create a balance due to the College. Failure to officially withdraw will result in an AF grade, which is maintained on the official student record and included in the grade point average (GPA). Not attending classes does not constitute an automatic withdrawal.
