Adding is defined as registering for an additional class by a currently enrolled student.
Dropping is defined as canceling a class from the schedule of a currently enrolled student after the first day of class.
If a student drops a course prior to the census date for the term, no record for the course is produced.
When a student wishes to add or drop a course, an Add/Drop form must be obtained from the component where the student is enrolled. The student must complete the form and secure the required signatures. The form is returned to the component’s Student Affairs Office. Once the component has processed the form, the original is sent to the Office of the Registrar. The Office of the Registrar processes the form and sends a copy to the Office of Finance and Administration. The HSC Office of Finance and Administration processes the form and generates a bill or refund to the student as appropriate.
The Office of the Registrar must receive Add/Drop request forms by the date listed on the HSC’s Academic Calendar.
International students must check with the Office of International Services before adding or dropping. Add/Drop action may adversely impact a student’s legal immigration status in the United States.
