An undergraduate student 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 Self-Service. The add/drop date is defined as the date on which the request was submitted.
For graduate classes, students should contact the course syllabus to find out the drop, add, and withdrawal dates for that particular course. Students may also contact the Registrar’s Office to obtain this information.
A student who does not follow Spalding's drop 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.
If receiving any type of financial assistance, a student who reduces their credit hour load is expected to report these facts to the Office of Financial Aid. Students receiving financial aid should consult with a financial aid representative prior to dropping or adding since credit hour load is a key criterion for Financial Aid eligibility.
