Drop/Add for Upper-level Students

Drop/Add for Upper-level Students

Upper-level students may add and/or drop elective classes according to the dates noted in the course schedule without penalty.

Thereafter, a student may drop an elective course without receiving a grade of “W” on their transcript according to the dates noted in the course schedule. The student will be charged tuition for this course.

Thereafter, an upper-class student may withdraw from an elective course after the drop/add period, but the transcript of that student will reflect the grade of “W.”

A student may add a course for good cause only, with the permission of the instructor and the Associate Dean for Students.

The last day to withdraw from a course and receive the grade of “W” is set by the Office of Academic Records and included in the course schedule. Students are not permitted to withdraw from a course after that date, unless the student has good cause and has obtained written permission to do so from the Associate Dean for Students.

Students are not permitted to drop or withdraw from required courses.

Part-time students who withdraw from an elective course after the drop/add period will not receive a refund of the tuition paid for that course.
