Subpart A. Drop for Non-Payment Re-Adding Procedure.  

If a student’s class registration is cancelled for non-payment at the end of the free drop/add period, the student may re-register for classes, depending on class availability, instructor permission and provided appropriate payment arrangements are made.  Only courses cancelled for non-payment may be added.  Students do not need to re-add all courses cancelled.  After the 25th business day of the semester, students will not be allowed to re-register.   


Students enrolled in internship programs are exempt from registration cancellation.  If a student does not intend to participate in their internship, it is the responsibility of the student to notify the college of that decision and drop the course.
