Add/Drop

 

A student may drop or add a course or a seminar within one week after the beginning of the semester.

An additional week is permitted for adding independent study projects and externships.

Add/drop forms are available to download here.

Students are not permitted to change from one section to another in any required course.

Dropping a course after the designated add/drop period will be permitted only in cases of compelling personal circumstance and may result in a pro-rata return of tuition, in accordance with university refund policies, and a W on the student’s transcript for the course(s) dropped.

Permission of the course instructor and the registrar is required to add or drop a course after the designated add/drop period.

 Read our full policy here under "Change of Courses."

Submit your add/drop form to registrationservices@wcl.american.edu along with your compelling reason.
