Course Add/Drop and Course Withdrawals

Course Add/Drop

Students may add courses to their schedule by the Add deadline, and may drop courses from their schedule by the Drop deadline. Dropped courses will not appear on the student’s transcript.

Course Withdrawal

After the Drop deadline students may withdraw themselves from classes in which they are enrolled through the 90% point of the semester. 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 Any student who officially withdraws, or is withdrawn by the instructor during this period will receive a grade of W for the course.

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".
