Schedule Changes

 Adding a course

 Students may add a course online through the student portal, mySTAR up to the published date. Web enrollment will close at 5 p.m. on the published date for all courses in the part of term. After web enrollment closes, students may add a course by requesting permission from the course instructor. If permission is granted, the instructor must notify the Academic Records and Registrar Office. This can be done by completing a Petition to Change Registration (Add/Drop) form (instructor and student signature required), or by the instructor e-mailing the Academic Records and Registrar Office (from their SFCC e-mail account to add-drop@sfccmo.edu) with the applicable CRN, student name, and student ID number. The Academic Records and Registrar Office will then add the student to the course. Instructors will not be able to add a student to their course without dean approval after the published instructor approval date. The absentee policy is still in effect if a student enrolls late for a course.

The exception to the above process is interim (minimester) part of term courses. Students may not add an interim (minimester) course after the published date. This is usually several days before the interim (minimester) course starts.


Students are not permitted to enroll in more than one course during an interim (minimester) part of term.

You can access these published dates from the Academic Calendar under Current Events on the SFCC home page or in mySTAR.

Dropping a course or withdrawing from all courses

Students may drop a course online through the Student tab in mySTAR or by sending an e-mail (from their SFCC e-mail account) to the Academic Records and Registrar Office with the appropriate information (student name, ID number, CRN, course number/name, and instructor name) or by completing a Petition to Change Registration (Add/Drop) form in the Academic Records and Registrar Office. This process can be done until the official last date to withdraw for the course’s part of term. Students cannot drop their last course or all courses online through the Student tab in mySTAR. A Complete Withdrawal form must be completed in the Academic Records and Registrar Office. The instructor must provide a last date of attendance for each course dropped.

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.

It is important to note that students are expected to successfully complete all courses for which they enroll. Great care should be used in selecting and enrolling in courses. Many factors should be considered, such as is the course applicable to the degree, length of the course, meeting times, and prerequisite requirements. Dropping below full-time, three-fourths time or half-time enrollment status may jeopardize insurance, financial aid, scholarships, and athletic participation eligibility.

Failure to properly notify the college of a desire to drop or withdraw from a course or courses has many negative results. Students will most likely receive a grade of F, owe the tuition and fees for that course and any financial aid received may be reduced. Students who drop a course because of a concern regarding a grade are encouraged to consult with the instructor prior to dropping the course.

The last day to drop a course depends on the length of the course. Students should refer to the Academic Calendar under Current Events on the SFCC home page or in mySTAR to determine the last day to drop.

Changes can be made in your schedule on mySTAR or with an advisor or counselor prior to the start of a semester/session.
