A non-matriculated student (a student not enrolled in a degree/certificate program) may add or drop a course by filling out an Add/Drop Form and submitting it to the Registration & Records Office (A-201).
A matriculated student may DROP a class by filling out an Add/Drop Form and submitting it to the Registration & Records Office. However, to ADD a course, a matriculated student must meet with his/her advisor or attend an official add/drop session as listed on the Important Dates page.
A course may be added prior to the start of classes, provided there is a seat available.
If you drop a course from your schedule before census day, the course will be deleted and will not appear on your transcript (See Student Guide ). If you drop a course after census day, the course will appear on your transcript with a "W" grade, indicating withdrawal. The grade of "W" will not affect your grade point average but may negatively impact your academic standing and/or ability to receive financial aid. At the end of the tenth week of classes, you will not be allowed to drop a course and will then receive whatever grade the instructor assigns to you.
Modular, or mod, classes are those courses which are less than a full semester in length. These types of courses may be added at any time prior to the start of the class. If you choose to drop a mod class, the deadlines differ from those of the regular full term. Please consult the Registration & Records Office (A201) for detailed information. During the first 20% of the course, you may drop a mod course and the course will be deleted. After completion of 20% of the course, and up until completion of two-thirds of the course, you may drop the course and receive a W (withdrawal) grade. You may not withdraw from a mod course after the 2/3 point of the course.
If you wish to officially withdraw from the college and drop all your classes, please see the section entitled Withdrawals.
