Adding Courses

A student may add a course to their existing schedule during the add period. The student needs a permission key number (PKN) to add a course. There is no fee to add a course to an existing schedule during the add period for that course.

Session I (December 17 -January 18) Monday, December 17 - Wednesday, December 19
Session II (January 2 - 15) Wednesday, January 2
Session III (January 2 - 23) Wednesday, January 2 - Thursday, January 3

Late Add Period

In exceptional circumstances, with instructor's written permission or a permission key number (PKN), students may be permitted to register for a course after the add period ends. In such cases, a student is subject to a $20 late add fee. Late fees totaling $60 are assessed if the student is not registered already for any courses.

Session I (December 17 - January 18) Thursday December 20 - Monday, December 24

Drop/Withdrawal Procedures

Students wishing to drop a session I course must do so by Wednesday, January 2, 2019. Students wishing to drop a session II or III course must do so by Monday, January 7, 2019.

Please note that, if you drop a course after it begins, depending on when you drop, you might not be eligible for a refund due to the shortened schedule for WinterSession '19 courses.

Students will be able to drop courses online or may do so, in person, 8 am - 4 pm, Monday - Friday, excluding weekends and holiday closings, in the Office of Registration and Records.  Students may also drop courses by sending a letter (postmarked by December 31, 2018) requesting the drop to the Office of Registration and Records.

Class non-attendance does not excuse financial obligation.  If you are registered for a class, you will be responsible for full payment of your course schedule whether or not you attend class.

Tuition Liability

Once WinterSession '19 begins, a drop may result in financial liability.  Please refer to the WinterSession '19 Refund Schedule for more information.

Class nonattendance does not excuse financial obligation. If you are registered for a class, you will be responsible for full payment of your course schedule whether or not you attend class(es).

You are responsible for dropping by the indicated deadline. Students are responsible for verifying their drop has been completed.

Students who are adding and dropping courses after the 100 percent refund period is over for a session, will be assessed tuition and fee liability for both the courses which have been dropped, as well as any new courses that have been added. See Tuition Refund Schedule.
