Student Responsibility

The student is responsible for any changes in his/her registration and should make note of add/drop deadlines. Failure to officially withdraw from a class will result in a grade of "UW" (Unofficial Withdrawal) which is equivalent to a grade of 'F' in computing the grade point average. Official withdrawals after the start of classes are assessed a "W" grade. Add/Drops forms may be obtained at the Registrar's Office.
