Advisement and registration dates and times are published every term. A late registration fee of $50 is assessed for registrations completed within five business days of the start of the term.
Students are assessed a $15 fee (per occasion) for schedule changes during the official add/drop periods:
14-week terms - during the first seven business days
7-week terms - during the first three business days
Withdrawing from Courses
To formally drop a course and have that action properly reflected on an academic transcript, a Withdrawal Form must be completed, signed and submitted to the Registration Office. Notifying the instructor or not attending class does not constitute a course withdrawal. (NOTE: Withdrawals may affect financial aid, loans, scholarships and visa status for international students.) The following guidelines must be observed:
- Students may drop a nursing course: on or before the last business day of the 5th week for a 7-week course; on or before the last business day of the 6th week for an 8-week course; on or before the last business day of the 7th week of a 10-week course; or on or before the last business day of the 10th week for a 14-week course. There is no academic penalty for dropping during these time frames (withdrawing does not count as a course attempt; it does not impact GPA). Current students should visit the Schedule/Calendar tab in the Student Resources Course found on BlackBoard
for specific drop dates.
- After the 5th week of a 7-week course; the 7th week of a 10-week course; the 6th week of an 8-week course; the 10th week of a 14-week course a student may only withdraw for a serious, non-academic reason or hardship. This withdrawal can only be granted by the Assistant Dean for the Program.
- Students may only withdraw from two (2) nursing courses during their entire program of study.
- Students may only withdraw once from any single nursing course.
A clinical failure at the end of a 7-week rotation in a 14-week course constitutes and will be recorded as a course failure.
The student may not withdraw from the course.A student enrolled in a clinical course will receive an immediate failure and may not withdraw from the course if s/he commits an egregious violation, including, but not limited to:
A reckless safety violation
- Any HIPAA violation
- Abuse of a patient, family member, staff, peer or faculty
- One no-call/no-show for clinical or clinical labs
Absence from clinical orientation may result in an immediate course
withdrawal at the discretion of the Course Coordinator.
