My student wants to drop or withdraw from a class, what should s/he do?

Students can add or drop classes anytime during the first two weeks of each semester (the add/drop period) without any penalty. They just need to pick up an add/drop form in the Central Service Center and have the faculty member of the course and their advisor sign. Dropping or withdrawing from a class after the add/drop period will result in a “W” being added for that course to the transcript. Your son/daughter should check with their advisor or the class professor should they feel the need to withdraw from a class as falling below full-time student status can affect a student’s financial aid.
