- Late course additions must be approved by the instructor of the course and the College of Engineering. A schedule revision form should be used to add a course.
- Late course drops are permitted only under certain extenuating circumstances. A schedule revision form should be used to add a course. The form must be accompanied by a letter of explanation addressed to the Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs justifying the request and supporting documentation (doctor’s notes, counseling center notes, etc.).
- If you have a legitimate reason for dropping a course after the deadline, you should first consult the University Counseling Center.

- Some on-campus courses are listed as “internet” courses. These ARE NOT distance education courses; they are regular courses that will be administered online. They will be billed as regular courses.
