A. Definition of terms
1. Drop without record: No entry is recorded on the student’s permanent record.
2. Withdrawal (Drop with record): A “W” grade is entered on the student’s permanent record. A “W” grade does not affect a student’s grade point average but does count toward credits attempted and may impact the student’s satisfactory progress. Standards for satisfactory progress are defined in 7.33 Satisfactory Progress Policy and recorded in the academic catalog.
3. Courses: A “course” is defined as any credit-bearing traditional or web-based
class, field experience, internship, or independent study in the traditional
programs.
4. Effective dates: The date that the course addition or withdrawal is effective is the date that all required forms with all required signatures are received by the
Registrar.
B. Deadlines for adding a course
1. After classes have begun for fall and spring semester, students may add half-semester and full- semester coursed within the first five academic calendar days of the course (not including weekends and holidays). Internship and independent study courses may be added within the first ten days of the semester.
2. Students may add a course, internship, or independent study for a summer term through the end of the first days of class of that term. This includes submitting paperwork for an internship or independent study.
C. Withdrawal dates and times
1. Dropping without record
a. Full-semester courses: Students may drop without record within the first ten
academic calendar days (not including weekends and holidays) of full-semester
courses.
b. Half-semester courses: Students may drop without record within the first five
academic calendar days (not including weekends and holidays) of half-semester
