Central Piedmont Community College is a learning-centered college committed to student success. For this reason, this regulation prohibits a student from registering for a class after schedule adjustment (drop-add) unless the reason for registering late is caused by an action of the college or is due to extenuating circumstances. Authorized college personnel may grant exceptions and may give permission for late registration as specified by these regulations.
Schedule Adjustment During Registration
During registration periods students may drop classes and may add classes that are not filled. Classes can be added at any point in the registration cycle from the beginning of the published registration period through the first two weekdays of the term or session.
Schedule Adjustment After Classes Begin
Schedule adjustment add period is the first and second weekday of the term or session. Schedule adjustment drop period is through the 35% date of the class. Classes dropped prior to or on the 10% census date of the class do not appear on a student's official transcript. Classes dropped after the 10% census date and prior to or on the 35% date of the class are indicated on a student's transcript with a W grade (withdrawal).
Schedule Adjustment After the Schedule Adjustment Period
Permission from the division director is required to enroll in any class after the schedule adjustment period up through the 10% date of the class, except in cases of College error.
Schedule Adjustment After the 10% Class Census Date
Permission from the dean is required to enroll in any class after the 10% class census date. Documented extenuating circumstances must be presented before an exception is considered.
Schedule Adjustment for Military Students Called Up to Active Duty
Military students who are called up to active duty may drop classes without financial or academic penalty from the college. Military students must set up an appointment with the Center for Military Families and Veterans in advance of a schedule adjustment or withdrawal in order to receive appropriate advisement and withdrawal procedures.
