Students are encouraged to work closely with their counselor and choose carefully when forecasting for classes as changes made after a semester begins are discouraged. Students may drop a class (or classes) without record, until the second (2nd) Friday of the semester or from date of enrollment; whichever is appropriate. After this date, students cannot drop a class (or classes) unless approved by a parent/guardian, teachers(s) of the class(es), and an administrator. Students who drop a class after the deadline date will receive an “F” as a final semester grade on their transcript unless otherwise noted by an administrator. In some cases, a “W” may be applied. Students must speak with their counselor and fill out a course drop form.
