Add/Drop/Withdrawal Policy

Students may drop or add a class during the first two weeks of classes with no financial implications, so long as they remain within their allowable full time credit load. (Credit loads are detailed in the student handbook). The start and end dates of the “add/drop period” are clearly posted on the Academic Calendar which is posted both online and in the student handbook. Forms for adding and dropping courses are available at the Office of the Registrar. Adding or dropping a course requires the signature of the instructor whose course you wish to add or drop and your advisor. In the case where the student wishes to drop a course and cannot locate the instructor or advisor, the student may obtain a signature from the Division Director, the Registrar, or the Assistant Dean or Dean of the Conservatory. Such changes must be recorded with the Registrar’s Office before they become official.

After the two week add/drop period, and up to the end of the 10 th week of a semester, students may choose to withdraw from a course without academic penalty; however, a grade of W will appear on the student’s transcript. Students may officially withdraw from a course up to the end of the 10 th week of the semester. After the 10th week, withdrawals are no longer permitted, except by special permission of the Assistant Dean or Dean of the Conservatory. Course withdrawal deadlines are clearly posted on the academic calendar.
