Add/Drop/Withdrawal from a Class

Students wishing to take a hybrid FLEX class may add a class during the first two days of the term or drop a class during the first week of the term by completing an add/drop online through Web Advisor. The add/drop date is defined as the date on which the request was submitted. 

A student may withdraw from a class after the drop/add period by completing the withdrawal process online through Web Advisor. A student cannot withdraw from a class once 66% or more of the class has been completed. The student should refer to the instructor's syllabus for the last withdrawal date for the class. The student can also contact the Registrar's Office to obtain this information.

When withdrawing, the student will receive a letter grade of W for the course. Withdrawal refunds are calculated by the Datatel computer system according to how many class meetings have occurred prior to the withdrawal. A student who withdraws from a class may get a partial refund or none at all, depending on how many class meetings have occurred prior to the withdrawal.

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

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 http://my.spalding.edu.

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.
