Registration - Instructor Drops
Instructors are permitted to drop a student who fails to establish a committed presence in the class. "Establishing a committed presence" is defined as the following options for the student:
- In-person classes. Attending the first class meeting or informing the instructor of the intention to continue in the class before 48 hours after the first official class meeting.
- Online classes. Logging on to the LMS class shell on the first scheduled day of the class or informing the instructor of the intention to continue in the class before 48 hours after the official class start date.
Some instructors will drop students who do not meet the stated course prerequisites. However, they are not required to do so. It is the student's responsibility to make sure classes are dropped.
