For fall and spring semesters, a two-week add/drop period begins on the first day of the semester. Registration for semester-length courses (15 weeks) is not permitted after the second week of the semester.
The add/drop deadline for courses with irregular start or end dates is five business days after the published class start date.
Students may adjust their schedules and add or drop courses throughout the add/drop period. Instructor approval may be required. Check the Academic Calendar for dates and deadlines.
Caution: Dropping, withdrawing, or auditing courses may affect eligibility for current and future financial aid.
Students may withdraw from a semester-length course through the 10th week of the semester.
The withdrawal deadline for courses with irregular start or end dates is the posted withdrawal deadline for that semester. For classes starting after the withdrawal deadline, students have the option to drop the class within five business days after the published class start date. A withdrawal is indicated by a W on a student’s permanent academic transcript. No tuition is refunded to students who withdraw from a class. Students are strongly encouraged to speak with an advisor prior to withdrawing.
Audit registrations are on a space-available basis and no credit is received for audited courses. Auditing students may be dropped from a class to make room for credit-seeking students. Requirements for auditing the course are determined by the instructor. Faculty may withdraw students if they fail to comply with the agreed upon terms.
Students who audit courses are required to meet prerequisites, register and pay the same tuition as those who take the course(s) for credit. During the first and second weeks of the semester, audit-to-credit requires a faculty signature. Neither credit-to-audit or audit-to-credit changes are allowed after the second week of the semester.
Audited courses are not included in the computation of study load for full-time or part-time status.
