Add/Drop/Withdrawal from a Class

Students wishing to take a hybrid FLEX class must register at least 48 hours before the first class meeting. Once a hybrid FLEX class has met for the first time, a student cannot drop that class, but may withdraw prior to the fourth class meeting. Please see the Attendance Policy for Online Classes for add/drop/withdrawal information for online classes. To add, drop or withdraw from a course, the student will need to log into his or her Spalding student portal account and initiate this process through WebAdvisor at

Students must initiate the drop process though WebAdvisor at up to 24 hours prior to the first class meeting in order to receive a 100% tuition refund. The day of the first class meeting or later, the student's only option is to withdraw from the class.

A student who does not follow Spalding University's drop policy will be charged for all classes for which he or she registered, regardless of his or her attendance in class. If an instructor has a student on the class roster who has never attended the class, the instructor must note this on his or her grade sheet and assign the student a grade of F.

Refund policies apply to the entire obligation for the course(s), not just the amount paid as of a specific date. Students receiving financial aid should consult with a financial aid representative prior to dropping or withdrawing since credit load is a key criterion for Financial Aid eligibility.
