Add/Drop Policy

At the start of each academic term, a limited period is available for students to add or drop courses. For courses that meet throughout the full duration of the term, the drop/add window is designated as the first two weeks. For courses with a non-standard scheduling format (e.g., 7-week, weekend, hybrid modality), the add/drop period is proportionally adjusted. After the published start date, the addition of a course requires the consent of the instructor. Requests for course additions/drops must be communicated by the student in writing to the appropriate program office. Tuition refunds (if applicable) for dropped courses will be calculated based on the verified date of the student’s request. Students who drop all courses for a given academic term on or after the term start date are subject to a $150 withdrawal fee.
