Add/Drop/Withdrawal

Add/Drop: actions related to a student’s registration in a class. 

Many of our students can use the self-service feature in the Student Information System (SIS) to “add” a class.  For those not able to use self-service, a Class Registration Form must be completed so that SCPS Registration Staff can add the class in the SIS. 

Likewise, students can use the self-service feature in the SIS to drop a class. However, if they are requesting a refund, they must also complete and submit the SCPS Drop/Refund Request Form. 

The following actions DO NOT constitute an official drop of a class:

  • Ceasing to attend a class
  • Notifying the instructor
  • Notifying the employer/sponsoring agency
  • Dropping through self-service in the SIS after classes begin without also completing the SCPS Drop/Refund Request Form.

Withdrawal: a term which refers to the student’s decision to end his/her programmatic relationship with an SCPS program and, therefore, the University. Normally, withdrawal is associated with permanent discontinuation. Discontinued participation in a class does not constitute a withdrawal from the class or the program. 

The following actions DO NOT indicate withdrawal from the University:

  • Ceasing to attend a class
  • Notifying the instructor
  • Notifying the employer/sponsoring agency
  • Dropping through self-service in the SIS after classes begin without also completing the SCPS Drop/Refund Request Form
