The Drop-Add period at Antigua College International is defined as the first week of class meetings for each course start (see page 65 for the Drop Deadline Matrix). The student must notify the Education Department in writing which can be via email or by submitting the official drop form completed in person at the college.
With the Program Director’s permission, a student can choose to add a course to his/her schedule within the Drop-Add period, but only if space is available in that class. A student may not add a course after the Drop-Add period.
Drop with Attempted Credit Reversal:
- A student may voluntarily withdraw from a course within the Drop-Add Period without penalty. No penalty is incurred only if the student notifies the Education Department of the intention during the Drop-Add Period. If notification is received after the Drop-Add Period, the student is not eligible for a credit reversal.
- If a student fails to attend class during the Drop-Add Period without notifying the Education Department, s/he will automatically be dropped from the class at the end of the Drop-Add Period and will receive a credit reversal.
Withdrawal without Attempted Credit Reversal:
- A student may voluntarily withdraw from a course after the Drop-Add Period at any point prior to the Midterm exam without reversal of Attempted Credit. However, the student must notify the Education Department of his/her intention to drop a course, in person or in writing. This student will receive a grade of “W”, will incur Attempted Credits, and will be financially responsible for the associated course cost.
- [i] Failure to notify the Education Department of intent to withdraw will result in a course failure.
- [ii] The student will not be allowed subsequent drops of the same course.
- [iii] Once the midterm exam has been administered in the course, completion of the course is obligatory regardless of its outcome (e.g. failure). The student cannot withdraw.
