Drop/Add Regulations and Procedures

Add Procedure

Students may add classes online using MYINFO through the 5th day of class. After the 5th day of the semester, all adds require the signatures from the instructor and advisor. After the 10th day of the semester, all adds require the additional signature of the Assistant Dean of the student's major curriculum on the Drop/Add form.

Drop Procedure

Note that if the student has paid fees and wishes to drop all courses, a University Withdrawal must be obtained through the Dean of Students Office. Each student is responsible for fees of all courses after the 15th day of the semester. See academic calendar for actual dates.

Students may drop classes online through the 10th day of the semester. After the 10th day of the semester, all drops require the signatures of the instructor and advisor. Although no refund will be given after the 15th day of the semester, students may continue to drop one or more courses with a grade of "W" up through the last day of the official registration period for the following semester, with the approval of the academic advisor and their course instructor.

  1. Students can obtain the Drop/Add form from their advisor, department, Registrar's Office or download the form from the Registrar's homepage under Student Forms.

  2. The student should discuss the reason for the drop with an academic advisor. If the advisor approves and signs the form, then the instructor's approval and signature is required on the form.

  3. The student must return the completed Drop/Add form to the Registrar's Office with a picture ID.
