Adding a Class 

You can add classes during the first week of the quarter*, if the class is open.  If the class is full, you will need permission from the instructor. 

 

During the second week of the quarter*, you will need instructor permission to add a class even if the class is open. 

 

During the third and fourth weeks of the quarter* you will need permission from the instructor and the division dean to add a class, plus you will be charged a $15 add/drop fee.

 

*Summer quarter deadlines differ.  Please refer to the Summer class schedule or Academic Calendar.

 

Dropping a Class

Through the first week of the quarter you get a 100% refund for the tuition that was paid if you drop a class.  If you drop a class the second week and third weeks of the quarter you get a 50% refund*.  No refunds are granted after the third week of the quarter.

 

You can drop classes after the quarter starts.  Starting the 11th day of the quarter, you will need to get instructor permission to drop a class. This will result in a "W" showing on your transcript for withdrawal, and you will be charged a $15 add/drop feeNo "W" will be given after the first day of the seventh week.  Instead, the student will need to contact the instructor about withdrawal options.

 

*Summer quarter deadlines differ.  Please refer to the Summer class schedule or Academic Calendar.

 

Getting Dropped from a Class

If you were dropped from your classes before the quarter started, you can re-register.  However, if one or more classes are now full, you will need to put yourself on the waitlist.  If you were dropped after the quarter has started and it is after the 5th day of classes, you will have to get instructor permission for each class for which you wish to re-register.
