Course Changes After Classes Begin
It is the obligation of the student to ensure that he or she is properly enrolled in each and every course by September 9. Dropping and adding courses continues via ACES until September 9. Since authorizing signatures of faculty advisors and academic deans are not required, it is incumbent upon the student to ensure that any changes are compatible with BSE degree requirements. The Undergraduate Bulletin and the faculty advisor or Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) should be consulted if there are any questions. After Drop/Add ends on September 9 no course may be added.
For withdrawal from a course between September 10 and November 11, you should schedule an appointment to meet with your academic dean for the appropriate form that requires an instructor’s signature. A course discontinued without approval will result in a grade of F.
When a student notes an error in his or her course schedule, the student should consult with his or her advising dean. All errors must be cleared by September 16.
