Dropping or Adding Courses


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  Banner Registration or through the Office of the Registrar with a completed drop/add form during the designated period indicated on the University Calender for the respective semester . Credit for a course will not be allowed, if the student has not officially enrolled  in the class.  It is a violation of University policy for an instructor to allow a student to remain in his/her class if the student does not appear on the official roster.


The following changes require Dropping or Adding Courses:

  • 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
