New Add/Drop Period for Term 1303 ends Monday April 1

January 30, 2013 in Academics, Announcements, Financial Aid by robbyn

Ex’pression College will be implementing a formal Add/ Drop policy.  The new policy allows students to add and drop courses
without penalty during a specified period of time and will be in effect beginning Block 1303 (3/25/13). 

The Add/ Drop period will begin the first day of each term and will end on the seventh calendar day following the start of each term.  Add/ Drop deadlines will be posted on the student site by the Registrar’s Office.

Every Ex’pression student receiving financial aid will have funds held until 1 day after the end of the add/drop period. For those students receiving living expenses, living expenses will be disbursed one week after the end of the add/drop period.

Example:
First Day of Term: March 25
End of Add/Drop Period: April 1
Financial Aid Funds disbursed: April 2
Living Expenses disbursed: April 9

Under this policy, no course drops will be permitted after the end of the add/ drop Period; however, a student may withdraw from a course per the course withdrawal policy (resulting in a grade of W on their transcript, or a WF if withdrawn after the Withdraw deadline).

Students may add courses during the add/drop period, only with prior program director approval or, for GE courses, instructor
approval.

Please be aware that additional tuition may be required if adding or dropping courses changes your enrollment status.  Changes to your schedule may also change your financial aid package.  Changing your schedule for whatever reason may increase or decrease the amount of time it takes to complete your degree and therefore may also change the total amount of tuition owed.

If you have questions regarding this policy, please see the Registrars:
