Occasionally the student may determine after the first or second class meeting that he/she needs or wishes to change his/her schedule by adding (enrolling in) and/or dropping (withdrawing from) one or more classes. Such changes should not be made, however, without consulting the academic advisor. Such changes can be made only by using the official Change of Schedule Form (located on MyLMU /Academics/Registrar/Forms) and fully processing the change through the Office of the Registrar and the Financial Aid Office.
The student may add courses to her/his schedule through the “last day to complete registration” as announced in the Undergraduate Academic Calendar, and after that date there is a $15 per-course fee for adding or dropping courses.
With regard to dropped courses, there are important deadlines which affect the grade or notation that will appear on the student’s academic transcript. See the Undergraduate Academic Calendar and take special note of:
Last day to drop without “WD”
If the course is dropped on or before that date, the course will not appear on the transcript; if the course is dropped after that date, the course will appear on the transcript with a notation of WD (for “Withdrew”).
Last day to drop without “F”
If the course is dropped after that date, the course will appear on the transcript with the grade F.
