Schedule Change/Withdrawal

A change of class from one class section to another is accomplished only with approval of the Records Office. Failure to seek official approval may result in the recording of an "F" grade.

No courses may be added to a class schedule after the first week of a semester or equivalent time in short-term classes.

Students may withdraw from classes in which they are enrolled through the 90% point of the semester (the end of the 14th week in a 15 week semester, or equivalent in courses that run on a non-standard schedule) and an instructor may issue a withdrawal for poor attendance through the same period. Any student who officially withdraws, or is withdrawn by the instructor during this period will receive a grade of W for the course.

Academic Dismissal from Allied Health Programs

(Nursing, Dental Hygiene, Medical Assistant, Radiography, Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Funeral Service, Licensed Massage Therapy, and Veterinary Technician)

Any student who does not successfully complete* two (2) courses (either two different courses or the same course twice), that carry the prefix of the student's Allied Health program, regardless of when in the program curriculum the unsuccessful attempt occurs, will be dismissed from his/her Allied Health program. An unsuccessful course completion for the purposes of this policy is defined as a final course grade of an "F," or "W".
