Schedule changes, such as adding a course, changing a section, replacing a course or section, etc., must be made by the “last day to add” in the Academic Calendar. See Academic Calendar online.
Undergraduate first year students need to submit a Course Withdrawal/Course Registration form to the Registrar’s Office in order to make any changes to their semester schedules. This includes changes to add, drop or withdraw from a course.
Students may drop a course with no notation on the transcript if the drop is completed by the “last day to drop without ‘W’ grade” deadline on the Academic Calendar.
After the “last day to drop without W grade,” a student may withdraw from a course by the “last day to withdraw from a course” (see Academic Calendar). When a student withdraws from a course, a “W” will appear on the transcript for that course, and this will affect the student’s Academic Standing. To withdraw from a course, students must submit a signed Course Withdrawal form to the University Registrar. Forms may be found online at the Registrar’s website: www.eastfalls.jefferson.edu/registrar/.
If the student officially withdraws after the “last day to withdraw from a course,” a “WF” will appear in the transcript and affect the student’s GPA calculations and Academic Standing.
Specific deadlines for dropping accelerated courses or summer session courses are published in the Academic Calendar by the University Registrar. These deadlines will determine the drop period for these courses.
In exceptional cases a student may request special permission from the Director of the Academic Success Center to drop a course after the “last day to withdraw from a course” deadline. In such cases a grade of “W” will appear on the transcript for that course, and this will affect the student’s Academic Standing.
Students may not drop or withdraw from fundamentals courses.
