Trinity College deadlines to add, drop classes
Trinity CommunicationsJanuary 09, 2019
The last day to add a spring semester class without a fee, as well as to add a Quad A class, is Jan. 16.
The last day to drop a spring semester class without record is Wednesday, Jan. 23 (Jan. 16 for Quad A classes). This deadline applies to the traditional undergraduate program of Trinity College on the Deerfield campus only. After Jan. 23, college students will not be permitted to add a semester-long class except under extraordinary circumstances, and only with a dean’s approval.
The Jan. 23 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 Jan. 23.
Jan. 23 is also the final day for students to withdraw from a class without record. After Jan. 23, a student may still drop a semester class through March 29 (Quad A classes by Feb. 1), but the class will remain in the student’s academic history (transcript), which will list a “W” (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.
If you have questions, consult your faculty advisor or the Associate Dean (Dr. Don Hedges).
