Drop/Add Course Info



*** DEADLINE TO REGISTER ***

The deadline to register or add a class is the day before the class begins. Students who attempt to register the day the class begins or later will receive a registration error of “Late Registration”. Beginning with the day the class begins , registering for or adding a class requires the instructor’s permission. Instructors are encouraged to admit students who demonstrate a reasonable chance to be successful.


!!! IMPORTANT things to consider before dropping a course: !!!

Effective Date - Drops will be effective the date you withdraw yourself online or a complete Drop/Add/Withdrawal form (pdf) is received in the Registration Office at the campus you attend. Instructor approval (signature and grade) is always required when the refund deadline has ended. You may drop/withdraw from courses through the last class day prior to the start of finals beginning. Once finals week has begun, you may no longer drop/withdraw from classes in a term.

Impact on Financial Aid - If you are receiving federal financial aid, e.g., Stafford Loan or Pell Grant, and drop/withdraw, your financial aid may be adjusted. You are liable for the debt incurred and your eligibility for future financial aid could be affected. Please contact the Financial Aid Office at the campus where you attend for more details.

Impact on Veterans Education Benefits - If you are receiving Veterans Education Benefits, e.g., GI Bill, Education Assistance Program (EAP) or Federal Tuition Assistance, you must notify the Military and Veterans Affairs Office (MVAO) prior to dropping or withdrawing. Dropping/withdrawing may have a negative impact on your Veterans Education Benefits. If you are dropping/withdrawing due to order to active duty, you must bring a copy of your active duty orders to the MVAO.

Impact on Health Insurance - The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act allows for students that are covered under their parents health insurance to remain covered until age 26, unless employer based insurance is available to them. Read more about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act now.

Impact on Health Career Program Clinical Candidacy - If you are a pre- or non-clinical health career student, withdrawing from courses (as well as getting a D or F grade) may negatively affect your clinical candidacy. See your advisor.

* The registration period ends the night prior to the start of class. As of the date the class begins, instructor approval is required to register for or add a class.  Approval must be entered electronically as an override by the instructor prior to attempting to register to avoid delays.

If you never attend : You MUST drop or officially withdraw from the college. If you do so prior to the end of the full (100%) refund deadline, 100% of tuition and fees will be reversed. If you never attend and fail to officially withdraw, you are responsible for half the cost of tuition and fees.

If you stop attending class: You MUST drop or officially withdraw from the college. If you do so prior to the end of the full (100%) refund deadline, 100% of tuition and fees will be reversed. If you are dropped by your instructor because you stop attending/participating, then your last date of attendance/participation determines the forfeiture. If your last date of attendance/participation, as noted by the instructor, is after the refund period, then you forfeit the full cost of tuition and fees and a grade will be assigned.

W grade will be granted by the instructor upon request of the student from the end of the refund period until the midpoint of the course as defined in the College calendar. The student must be attending class in a manner consistent with the instructor's attendance policy, have completed the required graded material, and have not been dishonest in completing the work in order to be eligible for the W grade.

From the midpoint of the course through the last class meeting of the course, the student will receive a grade of W or F, depending upon the instructor's assessment of the student's performance, which may take into account extenuating circumstances.  For classes that do not meet in the last two weeks of the term, this timeline will be from the midpoint of the course to at least three business days prior to the close of the last day of regular instruction as determined by the college.

Note: The financial aid that you are eligible for is directly proportionate to the amount of time that you are enrolled. A recalculation will occur based upon your last date of attendance.

If you have questions, please contact the Welcome Center at the campus you attend.
