Drop/Add and Cancellations
A student may add a course during the first (3) days and drop a course during the first (7) seven days of the term for a 15 week class. A student may add a course during the first three (3) days and drop a course during the first five (5) days of the term for an 8 week or 5 week course. This drop and add period may be adjusted under exceptional circumstances including open-entry, mini-term, evening and summer courses. Exceptions will be made only by the Academic Department Heads.
- Drop/Add dates and deadlines, including the last day to drop without academic penalty are published on the FDTC website and all Course Syllabi. Courses may not be added or sections changed after the published Add period.
- A student may drop/add courses via Webadvisor during the designated drop/add periods. A student may also drop a course online through the last day to drop without academic penalty. Drop/Add forms are to be used only for drops/withdrawals after the academic penalty date and/or for adds after the published add dates. Forms are available from your Academic Advisor or Registrar Services.
- It is the student's responsibility to initiate the proper paperwork to drop or withdraw from courses. Failure to attend a course does not constitute proper procedure for dropping or withdrawing from a course. However, you will be dropped from a course if you have never attended. Also, if you fail to pay for a course you will be removed from the class. Contact the Register Services Office for additional information.
See College Procedure for Attendance and Withdrawal from Course(s).
A course may be cancelled if a minimum of ten students do not enroll in a section. If one of your courses is cancelled, you will be notified so that you can add another section or course during the Drop/Add period.
A student who does not login nor attend any class meeting prior to the drop date will be dropped as a no-show.
