ACTivity Classes : Dropping Classes
You may use the Cyberbear (http://cyberbear.umt.edu) to drop a class through the first fifteen (15) instructional days of the semester. For courses dropped by the fifteenth instructional day, no fees are charged and courses are not recorded.
Beginning the sixteenth (16) instructional day of the semester through the thirtieth (30) instructional day, students use paper forms to drop a class. The drop/add form must be signed by the ACTivity Class Director and the student's advisor. The signed drop/add form must be returned to the Registration Counter no later than the thirtieth instructional day. A $10.00 processing fee is charged for each drop/add form. There are no refunds or reductions of fees for courses dropped and grades of W (withdrew) are recorded.
Beginning the thirty-first (31) instructional day of the semester through the last day of instruction before scheduled final examinations, students must petition to drop a class. The petition form must be signed by the ACTivity Class Director and the student's advisor and, in the case of drops, by the dean of the student's major. A $10.00 processing fee is charged for each petition. There are no refunds or reductions of fees for courses dropped, and the instructor assigns a grade of WP (withdrew/passing) if the student's course work has been passing or a WF (withdrew/failing) if the course work has been failing. These grades do not affect grade averages but they are recorded on students' transcripts. Documented justification is required for dropping courses by petition. Some examples of documented circumstances that may merit approval are: registration errors, accident or illness, family emergency, change in work schedule.
