  School of Public Health 2017-2018 Academic Policies and Procedures Registration Add/Drop  


Courses or additional credits may be added and/or dropped according to the published course schedule. Courses dropped during the first two calendar weeks of classes will not appear on a student's transcript. Courses may not be added after the end of the second week (the last day to add a course is published in the Course Narrative and on the school's website).

After the end of the Add/Drop period additions are not allowed. Students may withdraw from a course during this period which extends to mid-semester (the last day to drop a course is published in the Course Narrative and on the school's website). There is no academic penalty for withdrawing from a course during this time period. However, a grade of W (Official Withdrawal) will be noted on the official transcripts of students who drop courses during this withdrawal period. A grade of W means an approved withdrawal from a course.

A student who wishes to add or drop a course must fill out an Add/Drop form available on the school's website. The student and their academic adviser (for additions) or the course instructor (for drops) must sign the Add/Drop form. The Financial Aid Office will also need to sign the form, if the student is receiving financial aid. Students dropping all credits for the semester are considered withdrawn and must request a Leave of Absence form from the campus office.

Once the Add/Drop form has been signed, the student must take the form to the Office of the Registrar or their admissions office in order to effect the add and/or drop. Approved withdrawals take effect as of the date the signed form is received in the campus office or the Office of the Registrar.

A student who stops attending a course and does not process a withdrawal with the Office of the Registrar prior to or on the last day of the withdrawal period is subject to a failing grade for the course. A student who stops attending a class after the last day of official withdrawal without unusual circumstances will receive a grade of F (fail).

In all cases of adding and/or dropping courses, it is the student's responsibility to complete the proper form in the allotted time.
