Purpose: 

This procedure describes the options available to students who wish to make schedule changes after the deadline. The deadline for all schedule changes, adds, drops, pass/no pass or audit options, and withdrawals from the College, will be Friday of the eighth week of the term for full term courses.

Narrative: 

The deadline for all schedule changes, adds, drops, pass/no pass or audit options, and withdrawals from the college will be Friday of the eighth week of the term for full term courses.

Please refer to the No Show Drops, myLane Schedule Changes and Grading Calendar for term by term deadlines.

Withdrawals will not be granted after Friday of the eighth week of the term.  Course grade options for students after the eighth week deadline are:

  1. No credit ("NC") for students who have not completed enough work to warrant a grade;
  2. Incomplete, with Instructor Approval ("I") for students who have completed at least 75 percent of the required work for the course; and
  3. The Grade Earned ("A" through "F").

The college no longer records a "W" (Withdrawal) or "Y" (No Basis for Grade) on the grade record.  An annotation of  * (asterisk) will appear on the student's transcript when a course has been dropped after the full refund deadline. 

The deadline for using myLane to make schedule changes or grade option changes will be Friday of the eighth week.  After the deadline, students wishing to add a class are required to contact their instructor, who will then process a Change of Course or Added Grade Record Form.

Exceptions to this policy are classes which begin and end at times other than the first and last day of the term.

When a student is unable or unwilling to attend any or all classes for which the student has registered, it is the student's responsibility to process an official drop or withdrawal in myLane.  Students must attend one in-person class session or complete an academic assignment for an online course during the first week of the term that the class meets or they will be No Show Dropped by the department.  A withdrawal is discontinuing registration in all classes for the term; a drop is discontinuing registration in one class.
