Add Policy

Students are allowed to add classes up to and including the seventh (7th) calendar day of the semester (prorated for alternative semester lengths -see chart below), if space is available. Students who add classes are subject to the full attendance policy and are held responsible for all course materials and assignments. Before adding a class students should consult with the instructor to determine the extent of make-up work necessary for success in the class. A course may be added after the seventh (7th) calendar day of the semester (prorated for alternative semester lengths, see chart below) only with the permission of the instructor*.

Alternative Semester Chart (If Day 2, 3, 4, 5, or 7 falls on a weekend or holiday, then that day will be the first business day following the weekend or holiday.)
