ADD AND DROP PROCEDURES

Upon recommendation of the Academic Senate and the Provost, I approve the changes to the Add and Drop Procedures effective fall 1998. This Executive Memorandum supersedes EM 96-052.

  • Students may add or drop courses or change grade option without restriction or penalty and without instructor approval during the first two weeks of instruction using the telephone registration system or, where necessary, by submitting a change of program form. In classes requiring permission of instructor to register, a change of program form to add the class bearing the instructor's signature of approval must be submitted to the Student Records and Registration Office.
  • During the third and fourth weeks of classes, petitions to add, drop, or change grade option will require the approval signature of the instructor.
  • After the census date, all petitions to add, drop, or change grade option will require a serious and compelling reason and will require approval signatures of the instructor, department chair, and dean.
  • During the final three weeks of the semester, no withdrawals are to be permitted except for circumstances clearly beyond the student's control (such as accident or serious illness) and when the assignment of an Incomplete is not practicable.
