January 25: Last Day to Add/Drop a Spring Semester class without record
Trinity CommunicationsJanuary 06, 2017
The last day to add a spring semester class without a fee or drop a spring semester class without record is Wednesday, January 25 (January 18 for Quad A classes). This deadline applies to the traditional undergraduate program of Trinity College on the Deerfield campus only. After January 25, college students will not be permitted to add a semester-long class except under extraordinary circumstances–and only with a dean’s approval.
The January 25 deadline applies to all class adds, including internships, guided studies, and independent studies. If you plan to complete an internship, guided study, or independent study during the spring semester, make sure you submit the appropriate application (available on myTIU) and register using the temporary registration code (TR 099G, I or T) by January 25.
January 25 is also the final day for students to withdraw from a class without record. After January 25, a student may still drop a semester class through March 31 (Quad A classes by February 3), but the class will remain in the student’s academic history/transcript, which will list a “W” for withdrawal; a “W” has no impact on the student’s GPA.
Students should always consult their faculty advisor(s) before adding or dropping a class. Dropping classes may affect financial aid, athletic eligibility, and degree completion, so it is critical that students seek advice prior to dropping a class.
