Version Effective Date: Not available
Policy Applies To: Students
Responsible Office: Registrar



INTRODUCTION AND STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

POLICY

The last dates for dropping or adding classes for each semester are listed in the Master Course List (MCL) document, as well as online at each graduate student's GothicNet home page. Students can drop and add classes through GothicNet until the date specified for
Final Registration.

  • In general, no classes may be added to a student's schedule after the second class meeting.
  • A student who drops a course through the date specified for Final Registration will receive a full refund for that course.
  • Separate dates may be established for classes that do not follow the normal start/end schedule.

NOTE:
Non-attendance does not constitute a drop or a withdrawal. Refunds will not be made on this basis. If a student does not officially drop or withdraw from a class (by following the procedures outlined in this catalog, the Master Course List (MCL) document, and elsewhere), an automatic grade of "F" will be issued as a final grade

DATE TO INITIATE REVIEW AND UPDATE
As deemed necessary or appropriate by the Policy Coordinator but at a minimum, at least every 5 years from the effective date.
