Policies and Procedures
Dropping and adding courses
All new students must consult with their academic advisor to add or drop classes. After your first term at the University, you will be able to add and drop classes without advisor approval.
When dropping a class:
- Make sure to check in with the financial aid office to find out how your financial aid award is affected
- Talk with your academic advisor to understand how your decision could impact academic progress or admission to a program
- Be aware of general drop dates for first-half, second-half and full-term classes
- Review the refund schedules for first-half, second-half and full-term classes
When adding a class:
- Consider your work schedule and course load
- Consult with your academic advisor
