No-Show Policy and $150 Fee

Students who do not officially drop a class within the initial add/drop period, and are administratively dropped from a class because of non-attendance, will be assessed a fee of $150.00 per class. Students who are full-time after the second week of the semester and who are administratively dropped from a course which begins in the second or fourth quadmester will be financially responsible for full-time charges, even if the administrative drop results in the student being enrolled less than full-time. For students officially dropping a class, either before the class starts or within the add/drop period, there will be no charge. It is the responsibility of the student to drop the class online or deliver the drop/add slip to the Registrar/Advising Center.
