Drop/Add a Course
Drop/Add forms may be obtained in the Registrar’s office, student mailroom, or faculty/staff mailroom. All necessary signatures must be obtained and the form must be turned in to the Registrar’s office in order for the drop/add to be accepted.
Adding: To add a course after the first day of the semester, students must obtain the written consent of the instructor.
Dropping: Students may drop a course at any time. In most cases, dropping a course has no impact academically:
If the class is dropped during the first four weeks of the semester, it does not appear on the student’s transcript.
If the class is dropped during weeks five through eleven, a grade of “‘W -- Official Withdrawal” will appear on the transcript. A “W” is non-punitive and does not affect the student’s grade point average.
If the withdrawal takes place after the eleventh week of the semester, a grade of “UW -- Unofficial Withdrawal” will be assigned. A “UW” is the same as a failing grade.
