Dropping and Adding Classes

If you find it necessary to drop a class (including withdrawal from school) or to add a class, you should use a drop/add form.  Failure to do so will result in an “E” (failing) grade for the course(s) in question.

To initiate a drop/add procedure, you must:

  1. Obtain the drop/add form from the Admissions Office or ACTC website.
  2. Check the list schedule of classes to ensure the class is available.
  3. During the first week of classes, you only need to see an advisor to withdraw from class.
  4. Until midterm, you may drop classes without the instructor’s signature.  After midterm, only the instructor can approve the drop and MUST sign the drop form.*
  5. The Office of Financial Aid MUST sign the drop/add form, whether you are receiving aid or not.
  6. Return the completed drop/add form to the Admissions Office.  You need to remember the last day to drop a course each semester is the last day of class before the final exam begins, with the form due that day in the Admissions Office no later than 4 PM.

*Any student withdrawing from a developmental course at any time during the semester MUST have the instructor’s signature.
