Students may make changes to their course schedules during the first two weeks of classes by dropping and/or adding courses. After the first two weeks of classes, they may no longer add classes to their schedules, but they may drop them. All students may drop classes until the end of the fifth week of classes. It is therefore important that students have a sense of their progress in their classes prior to the end of the fifth week; please plan your syllabi with this in mind. Withdrawals from a course after the fifth week of the term are permitted only for exceptional personal or medical reasons, with the consent of the Administration Committee.
