Students are allowed to drop or add classes during the published drop/add period in the academic calendar without penalty (without receiving a grade of “W” or “WF” in the course). If students drop a class during the drop/add period, the course is not entered on the student's record. Students without HOLDS may drop or add a class online through their SWORDS account. Otherwise they should see their advisor to make a change or submit a Change of Schedule (Drop/Add Form) in person or by fax to the Registrar's Office on the Macon Campus or the administrative offices at other campuses. Learning Support Students must adjust their schedules through an advisor.

Students with holds cannot add or drop a class online.

Students required to take Learning Support courses may not drop the required course(s). Permission may be granted to drop one course if enrolled in more than one required Learning Support course. Students exceeding 30 earned hours must enroll in only in the required LS course.

The official date on which a class is dropped is the date on which the student properly executes the drop procedure.

Students who have a Required High School Curriculum (RHSC) requirement are not permitted to drop a RHSC required class if they have exceeded 30 earned hours unless they are withdrawing from all classes for all sessions during the semester.

After the Drop/Add deadline students may not add classes and must drop classes through the process.
