1. ADDING, DROPPING, AND WITHDRAWING FROM COURSES
1.1 After a student has completed registration, a student may change his or her schedule through the add-drop procedure.
1.2 Adding a Course
1.2.1 To add a course a student must obtain a Form from an academic department, the Office of the Registrar, or on the Registrar’s webpage on the university website, complete the form, have it approved by his or her advisor, obtain the signature of the gaining professor, and present the form to the Office of the Registrar.
1.3 Dropping a Course
1.3.1 To drop a course a student must obtain a Course Withdrawal Form from an academic department, the Office of the Registrar, or on the Registrar’s webpage on the university website, complete the form, have it approved by his or her advisor, and present the form to the Office of the Registrar.
1.4 Withdrawal After Add/Drop Period
1.4.1 A student may withdraw from a course after the add-drop period, but prior to and including the last day of the first week of classes after mid-term grades are reported, with a grade of W, if the student obtains the signature of his or her advisor and instructor.
1.4.2 Withdrawal without penalty from a course or courses after the deadline for withdrawal, but before the last two weeks of classes in the semester, may be approved only for appropriate cause such as serious illness. Appropriate documentation is required. Unsatisfactory academic performance does not by itself constitute sufficient reason to grant a late withdrawal.
1.4.3 The student should secure a Course Withdrawal Form from the Registrar’s Office or webpage, obtain the instructor’s signature and the advisor’s signature, and return the form with appropriate documentation to the Student Academic Support and Retention Office for review. A copy of the completed form and any required documentation must be on file with the Student Academic Support and Retention Office before consideration of a late course withdrawal. The assistant vice chancellor will review all documentation. Approved requests will receive a grade of W in the course and a second copy of the documentation given to the Registrar’s Office for entry of the assigned grade.
