Dropping or Adding a Course
To drop a course, a student must obtain a signed Drop/Add form
Adding from his or her advisor and hand the form in at the Registrar‘s Office.
At the beginning of each semester during the Drop/Add period, a student may drop a course without a grade by following the procedure outlined above. Students may voluntarily drop a course and receive a grade of "W" up to the date indicated on the College calendar for the academic session in progress. No student may withdraw from a course after that date.
Full time and part-time traditional students may add a class through the last day of the Drop/Add period (please see the current academic calendar located at the back of this Catalogue for specific dates).
A student in the Adult Degree Program may add a class only on the first night of each eight-week session. Weekend College students and students enrolled in a 16-week session (with class meeting one night per week) may add a class on the first day of the session with approval from the Director of the Adult Degree Program or with that of the student‘s faculty advisor.
All students who receive approval to drop or add classes must meet with their academic advisor. Students may drop or add a class on Self Service or by filling out a Drop/Add form and handing the form in at the Registrar‘s Office.
The Registrar‘s Office will then notify the Financial Aid and Business Offices of the changes. If the Drop/Add change creates an additional charge, that charge must be paid before the student is permitted to attend class. If the Drop/Add results in a change to a student‘s financial aid, the Financial Aid Office will notify the student in writing. Students who have been awarded financial aid are encouraged to ask the Financial Aid Office how the Drop/Add will affect their financial aid before making the change.
Withdrawing from the College
Students who wish to withdraw from Belmont Abbey College must
complete an official withdrawal form (available in the Registrar‘s Office), obtain all of the required signatures, and return the completed form to the Registrar‘s Office. The official date of withdrawal is the date the student completes and returns the form to the Registrar‘s Office. If a student fails to return the completed withdrawal form to the Registrar‘s Office, the student will not be officially withdrawn from the College. Withdrawal means voluntary withdrawal, either partial or complete. Except in the event of a serious illness or an emergency, withdrawals must be done in person. Telephoned requests for withdrawal will not be processed.
