Drop/Add Adjustments – These registration adjustments, as well as changing from one section of a course to another section of the same course, may be made only with the approval of the Registrar and the authorization of faculty or academic advisors and must be in writing. Drop/add adjustments will not be made after the date specified in the current semester course brochure. Students are personally responsible to initiate and complete drop/add adjustments. Once enrolled in a course, those students who never attend classes but do not complete the drop process will be administratively withdrawn from the course. This action may jeopardize academic standing and financial aid status. After the published drop/add period ends, students may still change their enrollment in a course as described in the following sections (late drop/withdrawal).
Late Drop (Withdrawal) from a Course* – If necessary a student may process a late drop for a course up to, but not beyond, one month before the beginning of the final examination period (Fall and Spring semesters) or one week before the end of Summer sessions. Students’ transcripts will show a "W" for all courses for which a late drop is processed. Late drop forms are available in the Registrar’s Office. Students are personally responsible to initiate and complete late drop adjustments. The last day of class attendance will be the date on which the late drop form is received in the Registrar’s Office. Only in case of documented illness or for other serious cause will the administration allow change in enrollment status without penalty after the late drop deadline. Appeals to the policy or deadline are to be made in writing and submitted with supporting cause documentation to the Registrar. Such exceptions will be reviewed on an individual basis by the Registrar and forwarded to the Vice President for Academic Affairs or designee for a resolution.
*For nursing students, withdrawal from a Nursing course requires the signature of the BSN Chair.
Withdrawal from the University – Degree seeking students are expected to maintain continuous enrollment. If necessary, a student may withdraw from the University or take a leave of absence. Requests must be submitted to the Registrar in writing for approval. A leave of absence will hold a student’s place in his/her current academic program for a maximum of one academic year. Officially withdrawn students who return to the University at a later date must reapply under the catalog that is current at the time of readmission. (Please see readmission process described previously in this chapter.)
The University reserves the right to dismiss matriculated students whose academic achievements consistently fall below a GPA of 2.0.
