Students should be aware that when they withdraw from a course at any time after the Cancel Deadline (5 days prior to the course start date), they have effectively occupied a place in the class. Since space in classes is limited, the faculty aims to ensure that as many opportunities as possible are left open for students seeking to register. The faculty treats all students in an equitable fashion adhering to the deadlines published.
