Adding/Dropping Courses

Adding Classes after the First Official Day of Class
Students may add classes within the period specified in the Academic Calendar. They must obtain an Add/Drop form from the Learning Success Center, obtain the required approvals listed on the form, take the approved form to the Registrar’s Office for course entry, and pay the tuition charge for the additional hours as well as any associated course fees. Students may not add courses on-line after the official first day of classes as listed in the Academic Calendar.
 
Changing Course Sections
Students who need to change sections of a course after the Last Day to Add, as listed in the Academic Calendar, must obtain an Add/Drop form from the Registrar’s Office and obtain approvals from both the instructor of the section they wish to drop and the instructor of the section they wish to add, as well as the approval of the Vice President for Instruction and Learning. Schedule changes after the first official day of classes as listed in the Academic Calendar may not be completed on-line. Approved forms must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office to officially record the change, and the Schedule Change fee must be paid to the Finance Office for any schedule changes after the Official Enrollment Day as listed in the Academic Calendar.
 
Generally changes in section are approved only for documented reasons such as changes in work schedules or family emergencies. When such section changes are approved, grades earned in the first section of enrollment will be transferred to the new section.
 
Dropping Classes or Withdrawing from the College
Please note that students may not drop classes after the Last Day for Schedule Changes or withdraw from the college on-line. They must obtain an Add/Drop form from the Learning Success Center and obtain the following approvals listed on the form: instructor for the course, LSC counselor, Financial Aid, Finance Office, and Registrar’s Office. Students who are unable to contact their instructor(s) should seek assistance from the Program Chair of the course(s). A fee for schedule changes, made after the Official Enrollment Day as listed in the Academic Calendar, is payable in the Finance Office in the Reynolds Center.
 
All classes dropped by the last day to drop as listed in the Academic Calendar will be listed as a “W” on students’ transcripts. Dropping one or more classes or withdrawing from the College may negatively impact students’ financial aid. Students receiving financial assistance should contact the Financial Aid Office before beginning the drop or withdrawal process. Students who fail to officially drop a class that they have stopped attending will receive a grade of “F” on their transcripts for that class. The College does not administratively drop students for non-attendance. Refer to the MSCC Catalog for more information.
