Drop/Add and Course Withdrawal
The drop/add period generally extends only through the first week of classes. The exact dates for the drop/add period are printed in the University Catalog, in the course schedule available from the Registrar, and in the Academic Calendar published on the Registrar's web site. A schedule change must be approved by an advisor. Students who plan to drop a required class should check to be certain that the class will be offered again in time for the student to complete his/her requirements on schedule. The Tift College of Education is under no obligation to offer individualized study for required classes unless those classes have not been offered within a two-year cycle.
Adding a course after the official drop/add period requires the permission of the instructor and the advisor and the signature of the Associate Dean.
A student may withdraw from a class up until the published deadline for course withdrawal each semester by filing a withdrawal form with the Registrar. A student who withdraws from a class will receive a "W" on his/her transcript. A student who withdraws after the deadline will receive an "F" for the class. Note that financial aid could be reduced upon withdrawal from a course. Contact the Financial Aid Office before officially withdrawing from a course.
Non-attendance or ceasing to attend a course(s) does not constitute an official schedule change, course withdrawal, or term withdrawal. Failure to officially withdraw will result in academic and financial penalties.
