Procedures for Dropping and Adding

Dropping or Adding Courses

Once a student has completed registration, all changes in his/her schedule must be recorded in the Office of the Registrar and validated by the Business Office.


There is a mandatory fee for schedule changes. Students complete a Drop/Add Form, which is available in the office of each school dean. The signature of the student’s advisor is required to authorize each change.


Classes dropped two or more weeks before final examinations will receive a grade of “W.” The grade and hours of courses with a “W” will not be computed into the grade point average. All additions to a class roll must be made through the Office of the Registrar. Credit for a course will not be allowed, if the Office of the Registrar has not officially enrolled a student in the class.


The following changes require the use of the Drop/Add form:

  • Change from one course to another.
  • Change from one section of a course to another section of the same course.
  • Addition of course(s) to class schedule.
  • Deletion of course(s) from class schedule.
  • Change in section or course due to inserting the wrong call number

The fees for class schedule changes may be waived for the following reasons:

  • A course has been cancelled by AAMU.
  • A course has been rescheduled for a different time by AAMU.
  • Other justifuiable causes for changes made by AAMU

Please follow the procedures below to Drop/Add courses:​


Step 1: Secure Drop/Add form from the advisor, chairperson, or dean’s office.


Step 2: Complete the form including the CRN number(s) of the class(es) which are to be dropped and/or added.


Step 3: Secure the signature of the student’s advisor.


Step 4: Take form to the Office of the Registrar for processing.


Step 5: Take the form to the cashier for payment of fee.



Students who choose to discontinue all courses enrolled in during a given term must withdraw from AAMU. This cannot be done through the Drop/Add procedure.
