Adding and Dropping Courses


Students will not be admitted to any class unless the instructor has received a roster or notice indicating proper registration from the Registrar.

Students will not be permitted to add or drop courses after the published add and drop date without their dean’s approval.

Students may not enroll in more than one section of the same course unless specified in the University catalog.

Class prerequisites must be completed as prescribed by the most current catalog, regardless of the catalog or curriculum in effect for any student.

All students are encouraged to consult with their academic advisor before adding or dropping a course; however, to add or drop a course, freshmen must obtain a signed Drop/Add form from their academic advisor, department head, or dean. To be added into a full course, students must also obtain the signature of the dean responsible for the course. Students must submit completed Drop/Add forms to the Registrar’s Office.

Adding and dropping classes are functions which should be completed via Self Service Banner (banner.ulm.edu), unless prerequisite issues require a signature by an academic unit. In these cases, a student is required to process an add/drop form and turn it in to the Registrar’s Office. Students using Banner are strongly encouraged to print a copy of the screen displayed when they drop a course and to verify that they have been removed from the course by reviewing their course schedule. A grade of “F” will be assigned to any student who does not drop the course from his/her schedule.

A student may drop any subject with a notation of “W” (withdrawn from class) within the time limit specified in the University Calendar. Withdrawals during that period carry no academic penalties.
