Dropping and Adding Classes

Courses may be added the first five days of the fall and spring semesters and dropped the first ten days of the fall and spring semesters.

Students may:

  • Complete an official  Drop/Add Form and submit this form to the Registrar’s Office, meet his or her advisor or a Counselor and submit this form to the Registrar’s Office.
  • Email from their Sussex email account or
  • Withdraw by mail or fax with a request bearing an original signature. The postmark on such written notification will be used to determine percentage of refund, if any.

Students can add and drop courses through the student portal until the end of the 100% refund period. Dropped courses are removed from the transcript and thus do not count towards enrollment, deferrals, health insurance and athletic eligibility. Drop/Add days are pro-rated for sessions less than a full Fall or Spring semester.

Students who neglect to follow official procedures and who stop attending classes will be assigned the grade of “FN” at the end of the semester or term. To avoid unnecessary costs and penalties, students are advised to discuss all Drop/Add Procedures with their advisor or with a Counselor. Students may withdraw from a class during the published withdrawal period but withdrawal procedures must be strictly followed. No refunds are available past the posted refund policy deadline. Students receiving financial aid must stop in the Financial Aid Office to determine if the drop/withdrawal will have any effect on aid.
