Add and Drop Procedures

Add/Drop forms are available in paper form outside the Assistant Registrar’s office. Deadlines for adding/ dropping classes are listed in the academic calendar and on the actual form. It is the student’s responsibility to submit the necessary forms and to be aware of credit-load and refund period deadlines. Failure to submit a Add/Drop form can result in not getting credit for your work or can result in a grade of “F” in the course. These forms are also used to determine eligibility for refunds.

Please note that English Composition and Art History Survey cannot be dropped without counsel. These courses are prerequisites for all further academic courses. As a BFA student you have the opportunity to make changes to your schedule, see below.

Add – A student may add a class during the “add / drop period” with the written consent of their faculty member after classes have begun for the semester.

Drop –A student may drop a class during the “add / drop period” without the written consent of their faculty member after classes have begun for the semester, as long as it is done before two weeks. After this date, students must withdraw from courses they no longer wish to attend.

Withdraw from a single course after the Drop Period

A student who withdraws from a course after the Drop Period but during the Withdrawal Period (the fifth through the eighth weeks of the semester,) will receive an automatic grade of “W.” The instructor’s signature is not required to withdraw from a course during the Withdrawal Period. This grade will be reflected on your transcript. After this date the instructor controls the grade.
Important! Information on this form is used in determining tuition billing and enrollment status for financial aid reporting. It is the student’s responsibility to be aware of his-her credit load status, refund deadlines and their effect on tuition billing and financial aid awards.
