A student should consult with an assigned faculty adviser before adding or dropping a course or changing sections. This is to ensure that the student chooses those courses which will apply toward the student’s degree and those which will not conflict with current coursework.
Courses may be added through the last day of late registration. Once online registration closes, the instructor of the course being added must give permission (a signature on the form) to the student allowing him/her to be registered by the Office of Records and Registration. The form must be processed before the deadline listed in the University Calendar.
A student may drop a course with a grade of W (or resign with an automatic W) through the last day to drop a course as listed in the current University Calendar. When a student’s official record in the Office of Records and Registration indicates that he or she is registered in only one course in which a final grade will be earned, and the student wants to drop that course, or is dropped for non-attendance by the academic dean, a resignation form must be processed to clear the records. Any time within a semester or session that a student is dropped from a course for non-attendance, a grade of FNA (F for non-attendance) will be recorded in that course, and the grade will be used in the computation of the grade-point average.
A student may change the section of a course in the same manner as that used for adding and dropping courses.
