Important Information: Adding and dropping courses - Refund policy

REGISTRATION: Students are responsible for registering themselves through Web registration. Visit the Student Center at to register.

ADDING A COURSE AFTER LAST DAY: In general, students may add classes to their official schedules through the Friday of the first week of a semester or session. Some departments or individual instructors may require permission or even close registration altogether after the semester or session begins. The last day to add for a session is Friday of the first week. The last day to add for a semester is Friday of the second week; however, permission is required to add after the Friday of the first week of a semester.

DROPPING OR WITHDRAWING FROM ONE OR MORE (BUT NOT ALL) COURSES: If you are enrolled in more than one course and need to drop a course, you may do so by using the online registration process. Visit Student Center at to adjust your schedule.

Students may drop classes from their schedules without permission or academic or financial penalty through Friday of the second week of the semester (Friday of the first week of a session). Check the course offerings to see the last day to drop your courses.

Students may withdraw from one or more but not all classes from the Saturday of the second week of the semester (Saturday of the first week of a session) through the Friday of the tenth week of the semester (last instructional day of the fifth week of a session) without permission. However, the classes remain on the students' academic records with grades of WP (withdrawn passing) or WF (withdrawn failing), and they continue to be used in the calculation of tuition and fees. WP or WF grades do not affect the student's grade point average.

WITHDRAWAL FROM ALL COURSES: Online Bachelor Completion Program students and online RN-to-BSN students may withdraw using the online withdrawal form at

Others may withdraw from all courses by contacting their academic college office. If you have any questions, email or call 740.593.2910. Withdrawal is not permitted on or after the last day of classes.
