IMPORTANT NOTE:

**COURSE DROPS: NOT ALLOWED AFTER 2ND WEEK OF CLASSES.

If you are not satisfied with a course, you may drop it from your schedule. However, to drop a course, you must do so before the end of the second week of classes.

Permanent Incompletes: A permanent incomplete is an official status within a student’s record indicating that the student experienced an extraordinary circumstance mid-semester and was unfit to complete the course(s).

  • For permanent incompletes, you must provide appropriate documentation proving you couldn’t complete your studies for a period of three (3) weeks or more for a serious motive, including illness or death of a spouse or death of a family member (see Regulation Promoting Success for details).
  • The College does not give permanent incompletes because you are failing a course or because you were absent for a final exam.
