Schedule Changes

Adding a course

During the web registration period (prior to the term starting) students may add a course online through the student portal, mySTAR.

Once the term starts, students may add a course through the first 3 days of the term for the 16 week part of term (or the proportionate equivalent) for shorter parts of term.  The dates are published in the Academic Calendar.

After the web registration period closes students may add a course by obtaining the required approval(s) until the date published in the Academic Calendar.

The attendance policy is still in effect if a student enrolls late for a course.

Exception

Students may not add an interim (minimester) course after the date published in the Academic Calendar.  Students are not permitted to enroll in more than one course during an interim (minimester) part of term.


Dropping a cou
rse or withdrawing from all courses

During the web registration period (prior to the term starting) students may drop a course online through the student portal, mySTAR.

After the web registration period closes students may drop a course until the official last day to drop published in the Academic Calendar.  Approval is not required to drop a course but the instructor must provide a last date of attendance for each course dropped.


A student cannot drop a course by simply notifying the instructor or by no longer attending.  All hours from course drops will count as attempted hours for course repeats, determining eligibility to continue enrollment, determining eligibility to receive financial aid and scholarships, determining residence hall eligibility and determining athletic eligibility.

Courses dropped before or during the 100% refund period will not appear on a transcript.  Courses dropped after the 100% refund period will appear on a transcript with a grade of W.

Students who do not officially drop by the date published in the Academic Calendar will most likely receive a grade of F for the course.

Exception

Students cannot drop their last class or withdraw from all classes online through the student portal, mySTAR.  The link to the Student Withdrawal Form is located in the I need to... channel under the Student tab in mySTAR and also on the Add or Drop Classes link in the Registration Tools channel under the Student tab in mySTAR.

Reinstatement

Students who are administratively dropped may appeal utilizing the Grievance and Appellate Process outlined in Regulation 2160.
