Section 3.5: Schedule Adjustments

You are here

Schedule adjustments are changes to a class schedule for students who have already enrolled in at least one course (1 credit or more) for that semester. During registration, students will use FlashFAST via FlashLine to process schedule adjustments. There are no processing fees required for schedule adjustments.  Students must submit a Petition for Exception to Registration form to the Office of the University Registrar when requesting schedule adjustments after the University deadlines.

Students in the College of Podiatric Medicine who fail to complete registration requirements by the deadline will not be enrolled in classes for the following academic year and may be withdrawn from the college.  These students may also be subject to a professionalism deficiency evaluation.  Podiatric Medicine students who request withdrawal after seven weeks of course instruction will receive on their transcript either the mark WP or WF if passing or failing, respectively.  Please refer to the college policies in the College of Podiatric Medicine section of the University Catalog for more information on the procedures for withdrawal.

Any applicable tuition credit (policy published on the Office of the Bursar website) is determined by the date the transaction is processed on FlashFAST.

COURSE ADDITION

Adding a course/section is permitted on a space-available basis and meeting course registration eligibility.  The deadline is by the end of the first week, Sunday at 11:59 p.m., of the fall or spring semester (or the prorated deadline for summer or flexibly scheduled sections). After the deadline, students may add a class or change sections of a class only with the written permission of the course instructor and submission of a Petition for Exception to Registration.

COURSE DROP

The deadline is the end of the second week, Sunday at 11:59 p.m., of the fall or spring semester (or the prorated deadline for summer or flexibly scheduled sections).  After the deadline, students will need to withdraw from the course.

COURSE WITHDRAWAL

Course withdrawal indicates that a student intends to stop attending any or all classes for the current term. Course withdrawal is permitted through the 10th week of the fall or spring semester (or the prorated deadline for summer or flexibly scheduled sections).  Any course withdrawal(s) processed after the second week of the fall or spring semester (or the prorated deadline for summer or flexibly scheduled sections) will appear on the students’ academic record with a grade of W.  For more information on the W grade, refer to Grading Policies and Procedures in the University Catalog.

After the 10th week (or prorated deadline), students are considered to be committed to all remaining courses and must complete them.  If students are unable to complete the semester because of extreme circumstances that first occur after the deadline, students should consult their academic college dean’s office.
