Adding and Withdrawing from Classes

Adding and Withdrawing from Classes

Adding a Class

You may add classes through the third day of instruction. From the fourth through the 10th day of instruction, the instructor’s written permission is required. Restrictions may apply; be sure to check with the instructor.

Withdrawing from a Class

If you wish to withdraw from a class and not have a ‘W’ appear on your transcript, you must do this prior to the 10th instructional day of the quarter. The last day to withdraw from a class is generally the last day of the eighth week of instruction. Students withdrawing from courses after the 10th day will receive a ‘W’ on their transcript. Please see the academic calendar online for exact dates. Adding or withdrawing from courses may impact your financial aid award; students with questions should review the Financial Aid Handbook or consult the Financial Aid Office.
