Add/Drop/Withdrawal

Adding a Classwall with v-flame

Now that we are past the second day of the semester, students who wish to add a class that has already started must call or visit the corresponding Academic Division for approval. (By policy, the Dean must approve beginning on the third day of the semester.)

Students if eligible can still add classes online if they are part of terms that have not yet started and there is still space available. Please refer to the Academic Calendar for information about each term: start dates, drop/add dates, as well as information for when the first and last days are to drop and receive a "W." 

Drop/Withdraw From A Class

Students who now wish to drop a class can do so by using a Dynamic Form. Courses are dropped by

  1. logging into My Vol State
  2. clicking on the Student Forms icon
  3. selecting the Drop/Withdraw Form

Before dropping a class, students should remember that sometimes merely speaking with their instructor might ease their minds and there may not be a need to drop it at all. Students may be doing academically better than they think OR after conferring with the instructor they may mutually decide on some strategies that may help them improve their performance. There are many student support services available. (See the College Success Zone page on the website.)

It is extremely important for students who are receiving financial aid (grants, loans, lottery funds, scholarships, etc.) to notify the Financial Aid Office prior to dropping a class or withdrawing from the College.
