• Adding/Dropping/Withdrawing Courses

    Adding Class(es)
    To add a class, obtain an Add/Drop form from the Admissions/Registrar's Office or from the Student Success Center.  The completed form is signed by the advisor and presented at the Admissions/Registrar's Office where the form is processed.  Any additional charges are then paid at the Business Office.  No courses may be added later than the last date listed to do so in the school calendar.  Students must make up any work missed due to late course additions.

    Dropping/Withdrawing Class(es)
    The following steps are for students who want to drop classes with a "W" on their permanent record:

    To drop a class at any of the four campuses, students need to go to the Student Success Center, advisor's, administrative assistant's or director's office to pick up a drop form.  The student's are required to seek advice from one of these offices on the options and consequences of dropping classes in order to complete the process.

    To drop a class on-campus, students need to go to the Student Success Center or the Admissions/Registrar's Office to pick up a drop form.  If the form is picked up at the Admissions/Registrar's Office, the students are still required to stop at the Student Success Center.

    At the advisor's office, the students will receive advising assistance.  The advisor will check with the faculty and advisors as well as appropriate agencies to explore student options.  Students on financial aid are cautioned about obligations and consequences to CBC and Department of Education if they withdraw from all classes or stop attending classes before the semester is over.

    All equipment checked out to students must be returned before students are allowed to withdraw.  The students must present a signed receipt from the appropriate department chairperson before clearance is granted.  Students must also clear all other holds before proceeding with the drop.

    Once the school official signs the form, students are sent to the Admissions/Registrar's Office in order for the registrar to record the drop in the student data system.

    Under extreme circumstances, such as when a student cannot physically appear at a CBC location, the student can submit a written request to be dropped from a class(es).  The student should include his or her social security number, course name and number, instructor's name, reason for the drop, and signature.  The request should be mailed and postmarked prior to the withdraw deadline; the postmark will be used as the date of the drop.
