Dropping & Adding Courses

Prior to the start of Classes

Loans may be deferred when a student is enrolled at least half-time (full-time/half-time status varies based on program of study) at the college and is receiving notices that their loan is in the grace period or about to enter repayments.  In order to have a loan deferred you must submit a signed and complete 'In School Deferment' form to the Registration Office.  Undergraduate, graduate, and Non-Traditional students may submit the deferment form to the Registration Office. 

A "Change of Registration" form is available from the Registration Office or online.  The Registration Staff cannot process the form without the signature of both student and student advisor (instructors signature not required).  Please make sure to use the "Pre-Semester Change of Registration" form.   This form will no longer be usable after the start of classes, as instructor signatures will be required. 

Students who have been authorized by their advisors may drop/add course(s) through R-Serve up to the start of classes.  Students may no longer use this capability once classes begin.

During Drop/Add Period

Students may drop or add a course without any consequences to their transcript (grades, GPA, etc.). Classes may be added only within the first 5 days of the semester (first 2 days of Summer Sessions). Classes may only be dropped within the first 10 days and students may receive a partial refund. Please contact Student Accounts with questions on refunds.

A "Change of Registration" form can be obtained in the Registration Office or online.  Changes cannot be processed without the signatures of the student, advisor, and instructor(s).  Multiple courses can be dropped/added on this form.  Please make sure to use the correct "Change of Registration" form.

Once the semester begins students can no longer use IQweb to change their schedules.

After Drop/Add period

Students may not add a course after the first 5 days of the semester (first 2 days of Summer Sessions).

Students are permitted to withdraw from a course after the Drop period with the following results:

  • The student will receive a grade of W, withdraw for the course.  W grades have no impact on the GPA. 
  • Students will remain responsible for the cost of the course.  (Please refer to the refund policy in Student Accounts).
  • Courses cannot be dropped after the twelfth week of the semester.

A "Change of Registration" form can be obtained in the Registration Office or online.  Changes cannot be processed without the signatures of the student, advisor, instructor(s), and/or division chair.  Multiple courses can be withdrawn from on this form.  The dropped course will still appear on the student schedule and on the transcript with the grade assigned.  Please make sure to use the correct "Change of Registration" form.

Once the semester begins students can no longer use R-Serve to change their schedules.
