There is no fee for schedule changes during the add/drop period.

After the add/drop period, courses may be added to your schedule only in cases of extenuating circumstances. Such additions require approval from the faculty, the registrar, and an academic advisor. If an exception is granted, the student will be charged a $300 fee for each occasion that an add activity occurs.

Courses dropped before the end of the add/drop period will not appear on the student’s permanent academic record. No drops will be permitted after the end of the add/drop period; however, the student may withdraw from a class (please see the following section for information governing withdrawals).

Students in off-campus programs are not permitted to change their schedules once they have registered. Please note that neither failure to attend classes nor failure to pay tuition constitute a drop.
