Procedure for Dropping a Class

COVID PROCEDURES:  Students are encouraged to contact their advisors or colleges by email of in person to initiate their requests.  A final email request received by Records from an advisor, dean or the proper instructor will suffice in lieu of the traditional forms during the current semesters.  An on-line form will be launched in the coming months. 

Fall & Spring Semesters: Weeks 1 & 2 / Summer Sessions: First day of classes

  • Student should consult with an advisor and can drop the class through WebAdvisor or by sending an email to the records office. 
  • There is no academic penalty.
  • If the class meets only once a week, it may be dropped without penalty before the third class session.
  • The dean's signature is not required.

Fall & Spring Semesters: Weeks 3 through 10 / Summer Session: After the first day of classes

  • Student should consult with an advisor and can drop the class by sending an email to the records office or registrar.
  • A grade of W is assigned.
  • The dean's signature is not required.  

Fall & Spring Semesters: Weeks 11 through the end of semester

  • Student should consult with the course instructor and can drop the class by sending an email to the records office or registrar. The registrar will consult with the course instructor and will assign a grade of W if the student is passing, or F if the student is failing at the point of withdrawal as determined by the instructor.

To Add A Class

Week 1 (Day 1-Summer)

  • Student may register on WebAdvisor, or work through their advisors.
  • If the course is closed, the student will need to go through their advisor or instructor to see if there is a way to be forced into any class.  An email agreeing to the force from the advisor or course instructor to the Records Office will precipitate the add.
  • The dean's signature is not required.

Week 2

  • Student wishing to add a course MUST have the permission of the instructor of the class.  An email from that instructor to the records office granting permission is needed to be added in the second week.  Late additions to classes will only be processed if there is capacity in the room.
  • The dean's signature is not required.
