Adding and Dropping Classes
You must be officially registered for a course in order to attend class sessions. The deadlines for adding and dropping courses are available from Assistant Registrar Sandy Foster, or online in the Student Information System (S.I.S).
Drop deadlines vary by class, due to the varied scheduling and format of courses. Adds require the electronic approval of the student’s advisor. Advisors and/or an appropriate staff or faculty member are notified electronically of any class dropped via SIS.
An add or drop is not made official until the student has completed the add/drop process in SIS online registration.
The official time of the drop is the date and time the student drops the course online in SIS, not the date/time the student stops attending class, even if the student informs the instructor of his/her intention to drop. Once you have registered for a class you are expected to complete the work and attend all class meetings. You are still liable for the tuition involved. If a student fails to drop a course prior to the drop deadline, but does not satisfactorily complete sufficient course requirements to earn a passing grade, the student will receive a failing grade unless the student has petitioned and been granted permission to withdraw without academic penalty by the Administrative Committee.
