Adding Classes

  • After you register, you may add courses on a space available basis with an Enrollment Form. Enrollment Forms can be picked up in the Registration Office at the front desk. (Office hours and location.)
  • Classes may be added during the first week of the quarter.
  • An instructor's signature is also required to overload into a waitlist class or to add into an enroll-with-permission-only class.  Waitlists close the Sunday before the quarter starts.  If a class had a waitlist at any time before this point, instructor permission will be required on the Enrollment form during the first week even if the course shows online as having seats available.

Dropping Classes

(Refer to the academic calendar for specific dates.)

  • Students may drop classes throughout certain periods of the quarter. Instructor signature is not required. When you drop will determine if you are eligible for a refund, and if the class will post to your transcript with a “W” grade. Please refer to the quarterly academic calendar for specific dates and information.
  • Although instructors may drop students for nonattendance (see below), it is the student’s responsibility to ensure their class schedule is accurate. Classes may be dropped online through the Student Portal or in person at the Registration Office.

Administrative Drops

In addition to administrative drops for nonpayment, outlined on the Financial – Paying Tuition and Fees page, students who are officially enrolled in credit classes must be in attendance or be granted attendance accommodations from the instructor no later than the 3rd scheduled class day.  Students who never attend, and who have not received permission to miss the first class(es) from the instructor, may be dropped by the college.  Faculty of students enrolled in online and hybrid classes must verify attendance by noting academic engagement activities, such as:

  1. Physically attending a class where there is an opportunity for direct interaction between the instructor and students;

  2. Submitting an academic assignment;

  3. Taking an exam, an interactive tutorial, or computer-assisted instruction;

  4. Attending a study group that is assigned by the institution;

  5. Participating in an online discussion about academic matters; and

  6. Initiating contact with a faculty member to ask a question about the academic subject studied in the course

See 34 CFR 668.22(l)(7) 

Students who never attended, but who are not dropped for non-attendance per the above practices, may submit a Petition for Exception to Policy indicating institutional error.  The student is responsible for providing evidence of non-attendance.  A successful petition includes an email from the faculty affirming the student never attended the class(es) noted in the petition.
