Students may add or drop courses only during the Drop and Add period as scheduled and assigned by the Registrar’s Office. Changes in registration are allowed subject to the following terms:
- Students are permitted to change sections, drop a course, or add a course subject to the registration rules. These rules include meeting the prerequisite of the course and remaining within the number of credits allowed for registration. Fees are calculated according to the number of credits registered.
- Full course fees will be added to the student’s statement of fees for any course dropped after the Drop/Add period and before the withdrawal deadline (check the academic calendar for Drop/Add and Withdrawal dates) and a “W” grade will be given on that course.
- If a student drops a course officially within the Drop/Add period, the course will be removed from the academic history and the transcript of record. No grade will be recorded for that course. Students who officially withdraw after the late registration period and Drop/Add deadline will receive a “W”. The last day for students to withdraw from courses is indicated on the academic calendar.
- Statements of fees are finalized after the Drop/Add deadline. Students have two weeks from that date to settle their fees.
Students who are graduating and need course substitutions to meet the requirements for their degree program and/or for any special circumstance must petition the Academic Council for approval. This must happen before the final registration for the course. The Academic Council’s decision is based on the university’s rules and regulations, and the recommendation of the department/ division to which the student belongs.
