Add/Drop/Withdraw Information

Prior to the start of a course, students may add or drop a class. After classes start, students may add a class only if they have the approval of the instructor or program coordinator; an add/drop form, with the instructor’s signature, must be processed with the Registrar’s Office. Students may drop a course during the first two weeks of class (for summer courses only through the second class meeting), after that they must send an email from their official McDaniel College email address to the Registrar’s Office including name, student ID number, the course title, number and section for the course or courses to drop and a daytime phone number. Notifying the instructor of the class is common courtesy, but is NOT an official drop.

If a student drops a course(s) after the first two weeks of class, a grade of “W’ will be posted on the transcript.  A W is not calculated in the students’ GPA.  Students may not drop a class two weeks prior to the class ending without permission of the program coordinator.
