Adding/Dropping/Withdrawing

The following procedures and time frames apply to adding, dropping, and/or withdrawing from a course.

Semester Courses

  • A semester course may be ​added​ up until ​10 school days​ from the first day of the school year for Semester 1 or from the first day of Semester 2.

  • After​ 10 school days​ from the start of the semester, an additional semester course may not ​be added.

  • A semester course may be ​dropped​ up until the ​mid-point of Quarter 1​ ​for a Semester 1 course​ and up until the ​mid-point of Quarter 3​ ​for a Semester 2 course​. When a course is dropped within the permitted time frame, it will not appear on the student's transcript.

  • When a student ​withdraws​ from a semester course after the permitted time frame, the course will be listed as a ​Withdraw Pass (WP) or a Withdraw Fail (WF)​ on the transcript, dependent upon the student's grade at the time of the withdrawal.

  • Full Year Courses

  • A full year course may be ​added​ up until ​15 school days​ from the first day of the school year.

  • After ​15 school days​, an additional full year course may ​not ​be added.

  • A full year course may be ​dropped​ up until the ​last day of Quarter 1​. When a course is

    dropped within the permitted time frame, it will ​not ​appear on the student's transcript.

  • When a student ​withdraws​ from a full year course after the permitted time frame, the course will be listed as a ​Withdraw Pass (WP) or a Withdraw Fail (WF)​ on the transcript, dependent upon the student's grade at the time of the withdrawal.

  • Special Considerations

  • All schedule changes require signatures by a parent, counselor, teacher, supervisor, and the Director of School Counseling.

  • It should be noted that a Senior who withdraws from a course is placed in a unique position. If a transcript for a Senior has already been sent to a college or university such that the dropped course appeared on the official transcript as a course in progress, it will be necessary for the college or university to be informed of the dropped course. The integrity of official transcripts mandates such action. The School Counseling Department, in conjunction with the student, is responsible for informing the college or university of this change in the student's programming.
