- There is a difference between “dropping” a course or “withdrawing” from a course. The deadline to drop a course, which would remove a course completely from your transcript, was at the end of the regular add/drop period on Thursday, January 23, 2020.

Full-time students must be enrolled in at least 12 credits.
This might be an option but it also could potentially have ramifications, including a significant impact on billing. Please contact your counselor in Student Financial Assistance (508-565-1088, email@example.com) before initiating a drop down to part-time status. Students who intend to drop below 12 credits will also need to schedule an appointment with Zach Brown, director of academic services & advising, for approval before the withdrawal will be processed. You can access our online withdrawal form here.
Yes. The College has amended the policy and deadlines for declaring a course pass/fail for the spring 2020 semester only. Students who are currently enrolled in 15 credits or more can elect to convert up to three courses to pass/fail. Students who are currently enrolled in 12 credits may elect to convert up to two courses pass/fail. You do not have to have any classes graded pass/fail, rather this is just an option available. Please see the email communication explaining the new policies in greater detail, including specific pass/fail FAQs.
Try contacting your primary faculty advisor for help with course registration, suggestions on which classes to take and help with academic planning. The Office of Academic Services & Advising is also open and available as a resource. Schedule a virtual appointment.
