The drop/add period is one week. Students who add courses during this period will be counted absent from classes they have missed. Students who drop a course during the second to sixth week will receive a W (withdrawal) on their transcripts. Students who drop after that time will receive a grade of either WF (withdrawal failing) or WP (withdrawal passing) up to the last three weeks of the semester. (The grade awarded will be at the instructor’s discretion). After that, no withdrawals will be allowed without the approval of the Department Chairperson (unless the chair is the instructor, in which case the Vice President for Academic Affairs approval will be required).
Only a grade of WF will be computed in determining a student’s grade point average. Drop/add forms may be obtained from the Registrar’s Office. This form must be completed and signed by the student before the drop/add is considered official.
