At the start of each semester, you can add a class to your schedule or make changes to your schedule, up until a class has met for the second time. If a class is online or only meets once per week, you cannot add once that class has already started.
If you need to drop a class once it has begun, don’t just stop going to class. You must officially withdraw. You will need to fill out an “Add/Drop/Withdrawal Form” available in the Registrar’s Office. In addition to the "Add/Drop/Withdrawal From" you must provide the Registrar's Office with proof that you communicated with your instructor prior to withdrawing. By officially withdrawing from a class you will receive a ‘W’ as a grade, which does not affect your GPA. If in doubt, feel free to talk to a counselor and if you’re getting any type of financial aid, please check with the Financial Aid Office before making the withdrawal official. Check the current semester’s academic calendar for the last day to withdraw from a class.
