As part of Central Piedmont's commitment to your success, we have regulations in place that mean you cannot register for a class after the schedule adjustment (drop-add) period for a term or session (unless your reason for registering late is caused by an action of the college or is due to extenuating circumstances). Authorized college personnel may grant exceptions and may give permission for late registration as specified by these regulations.
Withdrawals and schedule adjustments may affect your financial aid — review the financial aid satisfactory progress policy.
Schedule Adjustment During Registration
During registration periods, you may drop classes and you may add classes that are not filled. You can add classes at any point in the registration cycle from when registration opens through the first two weekdays of the term or session.
Schedule Adjustment After Classes Begin
Schedule adjustment add period is the first and second weekday of the term or session. Schedule adjustment drop period is through the 35% date of the class. If you drop a class prior to or on the 10% census date of the class, the class will not appear on your official transcript. If you drop a class after the 10% census date and prior to or on the 35% date of the class, the class will appear on your transcript with a W grade (withdrawal).
Schedule Adjustment After the Schedule Adjustment Period
You must get permission from the associate dean of the relevant division to enroll in any class after the schedule adjustment period up through the 10% date of the class, except in cases of college error.
Schedule Adjustment After the 10% Class Census Date
You must get permission from the dean to enroll in any class after the 10% class census date. You must present documented extenuating circumstances for your exception to be considered.
Schedule Adjustment for Military Students Called to Active Duty
If you are a military student and you are called to active duty, you may drop classes without financial or academic penalty. Set up an appointment with the Center for Military Families and Veterans for guidance before adjusting your schedule or withdrawing.
