Adding or Dropping Courses
Deadlines for adding, dropping or withdrawing from a course vary according to the duration of the course. Students enrolled in Summer Session may add or drop courses–except their last course–on the VandalWeb registration system. Students wishing to drop their last course, or the only course they are registered for, must contact the Registrar’s Office at (208) 885-6731 or email@example.com. Enrollment change deadlines are available on the Summer Registration Calendar, located under Dates & Deadlines. Questions may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org and should include name, student ID, and specific course information (CRN).
Please Note: Students will not receive a bill for classes that are added after their initial registration. Fees are due when credits are added.
Auditing a course consists of attendance without participation or credit. Only lecture classes may be audited. Audited courses are not recorded on a student’s permanent record, except as provided in the General Catalog Regulation C-1. Students auditing a class will pay the regular course fees noted in this catalog. An Add/Drop Form must be signed by the instructor to audit a course.
Course prerequisites are system enforced, meaning students can register for advanced courses only when the prerequisites have been met or special permission is obtained (i.e., an Add/Drop Form signed by the instructor or a computer override from the department).
The maximum credit load allowed for summer session is 18 credits for undergraduates and 16 credits for graduates. However, because of the short duration of most summer course offerings, students should exercise caution in deciding on their summer credit load. All students are urged to consult with their academic advisers prior to registering. Registration for more than the stated limits is permitted only on approval of a petition to the Academic Petitions Committee. Petitions are available in the deans’ offices. Registration for courses with conflicting or overlapping meeting times is prohibited. Students are prohibited from registering for two 1-credit workshops in the same week.
