AR 5075: Course Adds and Drops

Adding Courses
Students may add or drop classes throughout the registration period.  Students may only attend classes they are enrolled in. After the registration period concludes, instructor approval is required to register late or to add a class from a waitlist. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure the approved add is processed through the admissions, registration and records office.

Waitlists: If a class is full, a student can choose to go on a waitlist. If, while on a waitlist, seats become available, students will be added prior to the day a class begins and will be notified by email.

Withdrawals/Dropping Courses

Dropping a course within the refund period: Registration obligates a student to pay for all charges associated with the class. Refunds are granted only when a course is dropped within the refund period. Courses dropped within the refund period will not be recorded on the MHCC transcript. Non-attendance is not a basis for a refund or non-payment of tuition. Students are responsible for dropping unwanted courses and course cancellations by the college will result in a full refund provided a refund is due.

Withdrawing from a course after refund period; all charges associated with the class remain and a "W" for "withdrawn" will be assigned by the admissions, registration and records office on the MHCC transcript. An official withdrawal from MHCC is defined as the student withdrawing from all courses for the term after the refund deadline. After Friday of the seventh week of the term (or equivalent for nonstandard length classes), students can only withdraw by contacting the admission, registration and records office.
