Students may request changes in their schedules only during the Add/Drop and Withdrawal periods.
For information about Add/Drop and Withdrawal periods please look at the Academic Calendar.
No schedule changes are possible after the conclusion of the Add/Drop and Withdrawal periods nor is a schedule change considered official until it is processed by the Office of the Registrar.
Elective courses may be added or dropped via the student portal during the Add/Drop period. Additional information can be viewed in the student portal under Registration, Course Schedule & Degree Audit.
Elective courses may be dropped via the student portal during the Add/Drop period. Other courses may be dropped by completing a General Petition Form- Academic Related and obtaining all the appropriate signatures during the Add/Drop period. (See below for Drop/Withdraw policies concerning required courses.) Failure to file the appropriate form will result in the student’s continued enrollment in the course; continued enrollment without attendance will result in an automatic Failing grade.
Students may withdraw from a non-required course by completing a General Petition Form- Academic Related and obtain all the appropriate signatures before submitting to the Office of the Registrar for final review. (See below for Drop/Withdraw policies concerning required courses.) An approved withdrawal results in a grade of W being applied to the course in question. While the grade of W does not affect the student’s grade point average, it does prevent the student from Dean’s List eligibility, and the course remains on their record, with the student remaining responsible for the credit associated with the course. Failure to file a General Petition Form- Academic Related constitutes continued enrollment in the course, and the student is, therefore, subject to the requirements and responsibilities of the course. Failure to withdraw or complete the requirements will result in a failing grade.
It is the educational philosophy and policy of Manhattan School of Music to require that all students complete their degree or diploma requirements in the manner described in the catalog. Should a student feel that personal circumstances necessitate dropping or withdrawing from a required course, the student must complete a General Petition Form- Academic Related and obtain all the appropriate signatures before submitting to the Office of Registrar for final review.
