Add/Drop Procedures


Deadlines are listed in the college calendar.

To Add A Course

Pick up a "course change" form in the Registrar's Office or print a copy using the link in the FORMS section. Obtain the signatures of the instructor and your faculty advisor. Return the form to the Registrar's Office BEFORE the deadline.

Section Changes

If both sections are taught by the same instructor, only the instructor's signature is required. If the sections are taught by different instructors, you must obtain both signatures. It is not necessary for your faculty advisor to sign for a section change.

NOTE: Students may take 3-5 full-credit courses during each term. Add forms which increase a student's course load to more than 5 full-credit courses will not be processed until the corresponding "DROP" form is received BEFORE the ADD deadline.

To Drop A Course

Both the instructor and the faculty advisor must sign the "course change" form. When you drop a course before the add deadline, it means another student can take your seat in the course.

After The Deadlines

To add or drop courses after the deadlines, students must petition the faculty Committee on Academic Standing (CAS). Petition forms are available from the FORMS section or at  the office of the Dean of Students. CAS is chaired by the Associate Dean of Students, Academic.
