Students admitted to the School's undergraduate degree and Community Scholar programs are governed by the University Add/Drop dates and the payment and refund policies. Undergraduate degree students and Community Scholars should refer to University policies to add, drop, or withdraw. For more information or questions about the refund policy for SCPS undergraduate degree students and Community Scholars, please contact the main Student Financial Services office at 434-982-6000 or [email protected].
All certificate, graduate degree, and SCPS non-degree students should refer to our refund policy for more information about the drop and withdraw timeframe.
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 or a Senior Waiver Registration Form can be completed. Once the form is submitted, our registration team will review the request and process the enrollment. Once your request is completed, you will receive a confirmation email.
Likewise, students can use the self-service feature in the SIS to drop a class. However, if the drop is after the first day of class, students must submit a Drop/Refund Request Form instead of dropping the class in SIS. We will process your drop request for you and send a confirmation email once completed.
