Deadline for Add/Drop Classes is 9/27/22

Students,
Please be aware that deadlines for adding/dropping courses are coming up.  The deadline for dropping a course completely is Tuesday 9/27/22, while the deadline for making a level change is the end of term 1 (November 1, 2022).  Please be aware that many classes are full so you should see your counselor as soon as possible if you are contemplating any course changes.  Full details about course changes and any transcript implications can be found below as well as in our Program of Studies:
1. Dropping a full-year course altogether has the following implications:
  • From the start of school through the end of the second 8-day rotation results in no record of that course.
  • After the end of the second 8-day rotation through the end of the first semester results in a “Withdrawal” on the transcript.
  • After the end of the first semester results in a final grade of “F” on the transcript.

2. Changing the level of a full-year course to a different level has the following implications:

  •  From the start of school through the end of the first term results in no record of the old course on the transcript.
  •   After the first term results in a “Withdrawal” on the transcript.
  •   Students/parent(s)/guardian(s) should discuss with the applicable department head   how previously-earned grades affect the grade in the new course.
