  2. Changes in the grade base (A/F to S/N or S/N to A/F) of full semester and first 7.5 week courses must be made within the first two weeks of the semester. Changes after the second week require Scholastic Committee approval for all registrations other than Directed Study.

Withdrawal after the 9th week for full semester and 4th week for half-semester courses requires the permission of the Scholastic Committee and may not be made for academic reasons. Students should be advised to consider academic and financial implications before canceling courses. See withdrawal and cancel/add policies.
