It is the student's responsibility to initiate and complete the necessary procedures for making course schedule changes such as adding, dropping, and withdrawing from courses. All of these changes must be performed using the "Add/Drop" form obtained
from the student’s advisor. In order for the requested course schedule change to be effective, the completed form with appropriate signatures must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar by 4:30 p.m. on the published deadline date.
The deadline for adding a course to a student’s schedule is one week
from the start of classes. Any course addition must be reported using the "Add/Drop"
form and be signed by the student, the student’s advisor, and a representative from
the Office of the Registrar. Any student adding a course after the first week must
secure the explicit written consent of the instructor and will be assessed a $100
late fee. Departmental placement policies may authorize transitions from certain
courses to other courses within the same discipline beyond this deadline without
a late fee assessment.
Students may drop a course without having that course appear on their academic transcripts at any point up to Friday of the fourth full week of the semester. Any course drop must be reported using the "Add/Drop" form and be signed by the student, the
student’s advisor, and a representative from the Office of the Registrar.
