Drop/Add/Waitlist Policies

Drop/Add/Waitlist Policies - FALL 2014

You are responsible for the deadlines listed below:

  • Last day to add a class using the Web registration: September 3, 2014 at 11:59 pm.
  • Last day to put your name on a waitlist: September 3, 2014 at 11:59 pm.
  • Last day to drop a class (without a “W”): September 10th at 11:59 pm. Failure to drop by this date will result in a charge to the student’s tuition and a “W” on their transcript.
  • Failure to attend a class will result in an “F” for the class.

The Spanish Department Does Not Administratively Drop students for non-attendance. It is the sole responsibility of the student to complete the drop procedure if they no longer wish to attend a Spanish/Portuguese class. Please drop yourself so that others may have your space.

Waitlisted? Please read below.

  • YOUR INSTRUCTOR DOES NOT CONTROL ENROLLMENT and cannot let you into his/her class.
  • If you are waitlisted DO NOT COUNT on getting the class. Your schedule should be arranged such that your full-time status is not jeopardized by a failure to get into a Spanish/Portuguese class. Find a backup.
  • It does not make any difference how many chairs are available in the classroom. Class sizes are set by the department and university and only the Drop/Add Coordinator has the authority to increase them.
  • During the Drop/Add period (August 24, 2014 through September 3, 2014) all enrollment is from the waitlists and is controlled by the computer. Waitlists are prioritized by class standing once a day (at 11:59 pm) and open spaces are filled at that time. No one can let you into a closed Spanish/Portuguese class during this period.
  • You are not notified if you are enrolled in a class from the waitlist. You are STRONGLY URGED to check your status on the waitlist on a daily basis and to ATTEND THE CLASS, as you will be held responsible for all of the work if you are enrolled.
  • For SPAN 3000 and above you must be on the waitlist for a class by September 3, 2014 (11:59 pm) in order to see the Drop/Add Coordinator. The Drop/Add Coordinator will be available Monday, September 8, 2014 9:00 am -12:00 pm. Come to the Spanish/Portuguese Office, McKenna 126, with a photo I.D. during this time. This is the ONLY time the Coordinator is available. DO NOT contact the Drop/Add Coordinator before September 8th.

If you are not enrolled in the class by January 31, 2014 you may no longer attend the class.

Questions? Need Help? Please feel free to come by the Spanish & Portuguese Office in McKenna 126 between the hours of 8:30 – 11:45 a.m. and 1:00 – 4:30 p.m. This document is available on line at http://spanish.colorado.edu/content/dropaddwaitlist-policies
