Adding and Dropping Courses

ONLINE Process BEFORE Add/Drop Deadline

Students may ADD or DROP a class by the add/drop deadline listed in the Academic Calendar for the term. Log in to the MyCC web portal, and click on the Student Registration tab; click on add/drop courses.

Repeat classes and project completion classes (e.g. Independent Learning Project Graduate Management Capstone) require paper Add/Drop forms.

PAPER Process AFTER Add/Drop Deadline

Submit a paper form to the registrar, with all required signatures.

Get forms at the Registrar’s Office, your local Cambridge College office, or by logging in to MyCC.

You may register for additional courses before the first class if space is available and school policies are satisfied. Faculty signature is also required to add a course if the course is full.

However, courses added after the add/drop deadline may be subject to a late registration fee.

Dropped courses will appear on your student record as follows:

  • Courses correctly dropped before add/drop deadline or before course starts will not appear on your record.
  • Grade of Withdrawn (WD) — Completed form received after course started, after the add/drop deadline.
  • Grade of No Show (NS) — Marked as never attended by the instructor, and Registrar’s Office has not received form.

Important: With grades of Withdrawn and No Show you remain responsible for tuition.

Please Note

  • Adding or dropping courses may impact your financial aid.
  • If courses are not correctly dropped in a timely manner, students may remain liable for tuition cost.
  • No verbal or telephone “drops” or “adds” permitted.
  • Students must register for a class or add it as described above. Student names hand-written in to a class roster are not thereby registered. Unregistered students cannot attend class or receive academic credit. See Class Rosters Policy.

See Add Drop Policy.

Repeat Courses

Students may repeat a course once. See Repeat Course Policy.

Courses Outside Academic Program

Students may not take courses outside their academic program, as financial aid eligibility may be lost. See full policy.

Auditing Courses

Courses which are audited do not count towards degree requirements and cannot be converted to credit at a later date.

Individuals wishing to audit a course must contact the Registrar’s Office to verify that the course is available for auditing. Practicum and internship courses may not be audited. Once registered, the individual should consult with the course instructor at the first class to discuss expectations for class participation.

No financial aid is available for auditing courses. Please note that financial obligations will be incurred for an audited course unless the course is dropped before the add/drop deadline.
