Dropping and Adding Classes
During the first week of classes each semester, students may drop or add most non-required courses without academic penalty, subject to requirements outlined in the previous section. From the end of the first week to the first day of preregistration for the following semester, a student may drop a course only with permission of the Dean or his designee, the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. After the first day of preregistration for the following semester, a student may not, except in very unusual circumstances, drop a course for the present semester. In those unusual circumstances, students may receive the grade of “W” (withdrawn) or an “F” as determined by the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. An administrative fee is charged for each drop or add.
Students, however, may not withdraw from seminars, clinics, trial advocacy, and any other limited enrollment classes after the last day of classes for the current semester unless unusual circumstances exist. Under Faculty policy, any drop for the next semester will normally be recorded as “F.”
