Dropping a Class With or Without a W
  1. Login to Treehouse and select “Register/Add or Drop Classes” from the “Registration Tools” box under the “Student” tab. 
  2. Under the Action column next to the class you want to drop. Click the down arrow and, depending on the date in the term, select “Web Drop No W” or “Full Withdraw with W” from the drop-down.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Submit Changes.”
  4. Verify your class status(es) are correct before leaving the screen. If you selected “Web Drop No W,” the class should no longer show on your schedule.

Students with a Registration-Blocking Hold: If you have a registration-blocking hold on your account and need to drop a class, you must submit a class drop request by clicking HERE. Requests must be submitted by the drop deadline, 11:59 PM.

Dropping a class without a W occurs during the add/drop period and removes a class completely from a student’s schedule and record. This only happens if a student drops a class before the term starts or during the add/drop period at the beginning of the term. It is only used for a student who never attended or only attended within the add/drop period at the start of a term.

Dropping a class with a W is withdrawing from a class in which the student attended after the add/drop period ended. The class remains on the student’s schedule, is counted towards the student’s time status, will receive a W grade, and is included in financial assessment. The W grade does not effect a student’s GPA, but is visible on the transcript.

Additional Registration Information and Resources

Grade Forgiveness

GRADE FORGIVENESS GUIDELINES (CLA STUDENTS):

A student may be eligible to repeat a class for grade forgiveness if they received a grade of D+, D, D-, or F. Grade forgiveness means the first attempt of the class will not count towards a student’s overall GPA; however, the first attempt will still display on the transcript with the original grade. The second attempt of the class will always count towards a student’s overall GPA, even if the second grade is lower than the first. If the second attempt results in a W, it will not count towards the student’s GPA, but will count as a forgiveness attempt. A student may only complete grade forgiveness 3 times, 1 per course.

Students may repeat a class without grade forgiveness and with instructor approval, in those instances, both grades will count towards a student’s overall GPA (except W grades).

HOW TO REQUEST GRADE FORGIVENESS:

Grade forgiveness can only be submitted after final grades are entered for the term of the first attempt. The request must be submitted while registration is open for the term the student plans to retake the class.

  • Students must not be registered for the class to be repeated.
  • Students must fill out a request via TreeHouse under the “Student” tab by clicking the “Request for Grade Forgiveness” link from the “Registrar” box.
    • Students can fill out multiple requests if there are different sections of the same course available for the term they would like forgiveness.
  • The request will route to the appropriate department chair for review.
  • Once a decision is entered by the department chair, an email will be sent to the student.

IF APPROVED:

A student will receive email notification and will need to register for the specific class listed in the email at that time.

  • If a student wishes to take a section other than the one indicated in the approval email, they will need to contact the department chair for approval.

IF DENIED:

A student will receive an email notification stating so. If the student wishes to repeat the class without grade forgiveness, they can speak to the instructor and, if the instructor permits it, the instructor can put through a “REPEAT” override to allow the student to register.

  • Repeating a class without Grade Forgiveness means both grades will count towards the GPA.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION/EXCEPTION PROTOCOLS

  • The original attempt still shows on the transcript, with an “E” indicating this grade is exempt from GPA.
  • Students may only receive grade forgiveness for an exact class, not an equivalent or substitution.
  • If a student receives a C- in a first attempt of a class and wishes to repeat it for grade forgiveness, they may submit a Petition to Academic Standing for review.
  • If a student is requesting grade forgiveness for a registered class (current or previous term) they need to submit a Petition to Academic Standing ASAP.
  • Grade forgiveness cannot be used for repeats taken off campus.

W Block – Class meets on Saturday or Sunday, time is indicated in class listing.

Courses are arranged  with section letters that correspond to periods of the day. This way you will not book yourself into more than one course that meets at the same time. For example, you can only take one “A” course, and so on.

In situations where the course straddles the time blocks, the section code will begin with the letter in which the course starts or will show as a combined letter combination (i.e. MO).
