Drop & add procedures
Before dropping or adding a class, students must meet with their
advisor to determine the best course of action.
Changes before the term begins: If the
Registrar's Office discovers a problem in a student's enrollment,
e.g., a section overfilled, a course canceled, it may be necessary
to move a student to another section of a class. If so, the change
will be made automatically. If the student finds it necessary to
make a schedule change, a Drop/Add Form must be obtained from the
Registrar and the change must be approved by the Advisor.
Changes in the first week: The first five days
of classes in a term are designated Drop/Add week and are used to
make last-minute changes in schedule (as in the case of a student
who must repeat a course). The student obtains a Drop/Add Form from
the Registrar and must first obtain the signature of the Advisor,
indicating approval, and then the signatures of the instructor in
the course being added and the instructor in the course being
dropped, indicating that they have been notified of the change. The
student then returns the Form to the Registrar. Note that adding a
course is permitted only through the fifth day of classes in the
