Graduate Catalog: 2021-22

Add & Drop Courses

Changes in schedule may be made by the student on My Cougar Connection or in the Registrar’s office to safeguard the accuracy of the student’s permanent record. The drop/add period deadlines vary by course format type and are published in the course schedule.

A student who desires to make any change in his/her schedule must complete a Drop/Add form which is available in the Registrar’s office. The student must then have the completed Drop/Add form signed by his or her advisor (and coach if an athlete), by another faculty member in the department, or by Student Academic Support Services staff as evidence that possible alternatives and consequences were discussed. The completed Drop/Add form must be taken to the Registrar’s office for processing.

Students who complete the desired change on My Cougar Connection are strongly advised to first secure the approval of their advisor. It should be noted that changes in full-time or part-time status may affect financial aid, Veteran’s benefits, residential status or athletic eligibility.

Accelerated Programs

Students in accelerated programs have 48 hours after a course begins to drop or add a course in his/her schedule. Students have until 11:59 P.M. on Tuesday of the first week of the session for their course to drop or add classes. This can be done either on Cougar Connection or in writing to the student’s advisor.
