Adds, Drops, and Withdrawals

With the permission of the student’s advisor, a course may be added through the first week of class for the fall and spring semesters. All course section adjustments must be completed during the first week of the semester.

 

Students may add via their advisors or via Banner Self-Service through the eighth week of the semester.

 

Please see the Important Dates calendar for complete information concerning the dates for adding and dropping courses.

Students will be charged a $25 fee for every course that is dropped after the first week of classes during regular semesters. Contact the Bursar’s Office for fees charged for drops during the summer semesters.

 

**Please note that dropping coursework may affect financial aid awards, including Lottery Scholarships.

 

Students may drop courses via their advisors, via Banner Self-Service, or via the Office of Academic Records through the eighth week of the semester. Classes dropped between the second and eighth week of class will receive a grade of W.

 

Please see the Important Dates calendar for complete information concerning the dates for adding and dropping courses.

 

Courses may not be dropped after the first eight weeks of a semester unless it can be clearly demonstrated that one of the following exists:

  1. Serious illness or injury of the student as verified by Student Health and Counseling Center or private physician
  2. Serious personal or family problems as verified by a minister, physician, or other appropriate professional
  3. Necessary change in work schedule which conflicts with the class being dropped, as verified by the student's employer submitted in writing on company letterhead.

In the event of such certification, and the approval of the student's advisor and the registrar, the student shall be permitted to drop and will receive a grade of W. A student will not be permitted to drop a course after the first eight weeks of the semester simply to avoid a poor grade. Under no circumstances may a course be dropped after the last day of class or after administration of the final exam, whichever occurs first.

 

Students dropping all of their course load during any semester are withdrawing from the university and should follow the withdrawal process.

Withdrawals executed during the first week of the fall and spring semesters will leave no record of the courses for which the student signed.

 

Withdrawals executed between the second and eighth week of the semester will result in a grade of W (withdrawal) in all courses for which the student signed.

  1. Serious illness or injury of the student as verified by Student Health and Counseling Center or private physician
  2. Serious personal or family problems as verified by a minister, physician, or other appropriate professional
  3. Necessary change in work schedule which conflicts with the class being dropped, as verified by the student's employer submitted in writing on company letterhead.

Under normal circumstances, a student may not withdraw from the university after the last day of class or after administration of the final exam, whichever occurs first.
