Adding/Dropping Courses

Before adding or dropping a class or classes, students should consult their Academic Advisor.

Add Policy
Students are allowed to add classes up to and including the seventh (7th) calendar day of the semester (prorated for alternative semester lengthssee chart below), if space is available. Students who add classes are subject to the full attendance policy and are held responsible for all course materials and assignments. Before adding a class students should consult with the instructor to determine the extent of make-up work necessary for success in the class. A course may be added after the seventh (7th) calendar day of the semester (prorated for alternative semester lengths, see chart below) only with the permission of the instructor*.

Alternative Semester Chart (If Day 2, 3, 4, 5, or 7 falls on a weekend or holiday, then that day will be the first business day following the weekend or holiday.)

Semester Length Add Period
15-16 weeks Day 1-7
12 weeks Day 1-5
8 weeks Day 1-4
6 weeks Day 1-3
4 weeks Day 1-2
2 weeks or less Day 1 only

Example: If class started on Thursday, but the semester started on Monday, then Day 1 is that Monday, not Thursday.

Exceptions to Add Policy

  • 100% online classes: If the semester/class has started, a student may add a 100% online class only with the permission of the instructor* (and advisor if matriculated).
  • Lab Classes: If the semester has started, a student may add a class with a lab component only if the first class has not been missed. Once the first class has been missed, the student may add only with the permission of the instructor* (and advisor if matriculated). Examples of lab classes are, but not limited to: lab science, computer technologies, information systems technology and drawing. Final decisions of what is considered a lab class rest with Academic Affairs.

*The program chair or program coordinator may sign the add form if the instructor is unavailable.
