Prior to the start of the semester classes, traditional students may drop courses through Web4Student for both the 12 and 3-week. During the first two weeks of the 15-week semester, students may drop any of their 12-week courses online. Beginning Fall 2013, dropping a 3 week course without adding another during the first two weeks of the semester requires the Associate Dean’s signature. During these first two weeks, there is no mark on the transcript for either the 12-week drop or 3-week drop, and the hours dropped do not count in the total 18 tuition hours allotted for the entire 15 week semester.
Beginning with week 3 of the semester, withdrawing from a course (12-week or 3-week) will result in the mark of “W” (Withdrawal) on the student transcript. Students who wish to replace one 3-week course for another should refer to the Course Swap 3-Week Policy below. Courses that receive a “W” are counted in the 18 total tuition hours allotted for the entire 15 week semester. Students withdrawing from their 12 week course will do so through Registrar’s Office and will receive a grade of “W”. Students wishing to withdraw from their 3-week course must obtain permission from the Associate Dean of the College beginning with week 3 of the semester through day 3 of the 3-week, and will receive a grade of “W”. From day 4 through day 12 of the 3-week, students withdrawing from their 3-week course will do so through the Registrar’s Office and will receive a grade of “W”.
Students who withdraw from their 12-week course beginning week 10, and from their 3-week course beginning on day 13 of the 3-week, will receive an automatic “F” grade in the course. The “F” grade will appear on the student transcript and will be calculated in the grade point average; the hours are counted in the 18 total tuition hours allotted for the entire 15 week semester.
Students should note that any course receiving a “W” is counted in total billed hours. If a student adds additional hours because of withdrawing from a course and the added hours place the student above the tuition allotted 18 hours, the additional charges will be billed during the semester in which they are taken.
Please Note: Dropping and withdrawing from courses at any point in the semester may affect tuition, financial aid, housing, and/or athletic eligibility. Students should consult with the appropriate College departments before making any course schedule changes. Students on academic probation are responsible for fulfilling the terms of probation as set forth by the Academic Review Board. If a student is unsure of the terms of probation, they should contact their advisor or the Registrar before making any course schedule changes.
