A student may be administratively dropped from a course by the instructor or department through the 7th business day of a regular Fall /Spring 16-week term* if the student meets either of the two criteria below:
- has not met the prerequisites for the course as stated in the academic catalog, or
- is absent one or more times** from class during the first four business days of the 16 week term.
For online classes, or blended classes without face-to-face meetings, students may be administratively dropped from the class if they fail to log in and participate during the first four business days of the 16 week term.
*For classes that run shorter than a full semester, the time frame shall be adjusted proportionately to the length of the class.
**It is recommended that the student contact the instructor during the first four business days of the 16 week term if absences during that period cannot be avoided.
Faculty may find the Administrative Drop Form at: Registrar's Office.
Students who wish to drop a class should follow appropriate procedures. They must not assume that an instructor will administratively drop them from a class. Students are responsible for changing their own class schedule within the established timelines.
