Academic Advising Frequently Asked Questions

How do I drop and/or add a class?

Prior to the start of each semester and during the Drop/Add period (the first few days of each semester-see current Academic Calendar for dates), students can drop/add classes without permission of the instructor - as long as the class has seats available and the pre-requisite(s) have been met.  (Note: not all classes have pre-requisites - see 2014-2015 academic catalog for verification.)  If a class is full, students must obtain written instructor permission to add the class.  Take the completed Drop/Add form to Registration to complete the change to your schedule.

After the Drop/Add period has ended, students need written instructor permission to both drop and/or add a class. Take the completed Drop/Add form to Registration to complete the change to your schedule.
