Add/Drop Requests and Information

2018-2019 Add/Drop Requests and Information

We understand that circumstances may arise that present the need to add or drop a course, elective or sport during the school year. As such, we have provided convenient online Add/Drop Request forms for parents to access and submit to the Registrar for approval. Families should consider both the Financial and Academic Deadlines below before any Add/Drop Request is submitted.

Each type of add or drop has specific deadlines that we must adhere to due to staffing and class section decisions that were made according to enrollment on a specific date. Please throroughly read through the Financial Policies that were included in your annual Enrollment/Reenrollment Packet before proceeding with an add/drop request. We must adhere to strict add/drop deadlines and no refunds will be issued past the deadlines listed below.

Adding a Course or Elective
The deadline for adding a year-long core course is two weeks after the first day of that course. The deadline for adding a one-term course is one week after the first day of that course. The deadline for adding Summer Logic is one day after the first day of the course.
Dropping a Course or Elective
The following deadlines mark the date when a 100% tuition refund will still be issued. After these deadlines, 0% refund will be given for any drops.  Courses may be dropped without financial penalty within the deadlines listed below. Courses in the School of Logic may not be dropped once in session without the prior approval of the Head of SL. College & Academic Advisors, as well as the Department Head and Head of SR will review all SR drops before approval is given. The online Add/Drop Request will guide the family in seeking all necessary approvals. After the deadlines listed below, no tuition will be refunded unless the drop is required by the Administration.

Sports must be added or dropped by the dates listed below. Once a season starts, there will be no refund of any portion of the fees. Once the change is approved by the Registrar, the family’s FACTS account will be adjusted. There is no additional fee assessed for changing the commitment to a sport; however, the student and family will be held to account for all policies in the Athletic Handbook. 

**Reminder from the Athletic Handbook:  If a student drops a sport during the season before the last game has been played, he/she will be ineligible to play any other Veritas team sports for one full calendar year.**

Because of possible academic penalties, School of Rhetoric students are required to consult with their college advisor prior to submitting an Add/Drop Request. The following is an excerpt from the Graduation from Veritas Document, signed by each SR student annually: 
For a course to be dropped from a student’s transcript, the course drop date must fall on or before the six (6) week mark for year-long courses or two (2) week mark for one or two-term courses.
If a student withdraws from a course after the deadline (6 weeks + one day for year-long courses; 2 weeks + one day for one or two-term courses), the official transcript will show the withdrawal as follows:
♦ For a withdrawal while passing, the transcript will reflect a “WP” and will show zero credits earned for the course with no effect on the cumulative GPA.
♦ For a withdrawal while failing, the transcript will reflect a “WF” and will show zero credits earned for the course; however, the student’s cumulative GPA will be adversely affected as the course hours are counted but zero grade points are earned for those hours.
The Course Withdrawal deadlines for the 2018-19 school year to not incur an academic penalty are as follows:
September 6th: Tues/Th, Term 1 only Courses
September 10th: Monday, Term 1 only Courses
October 3rd: M/W/F Year-Long Courses
October 8th: Monday only Year-Long Courses
October 4th: T/Th Year-Long Courses
November 27th: Tues/Th, Term 2 only Courses
November 27th: Tues/Th, Term 2&3 Courses
November 26th: Monday, Term 2 only Courses
March 11th: Monday, Term 3 only Courses
March 7th: Tues/Th, Term 3 only Courses


Before adding an Elective, please check for the availability of seats in the class. The lists will be kept live with the most current information available. If you add an Elective with no availability, your name will only be added to the waiting list and you will not be charged for the class. Open seats are filled chronologically from the waiting list. You will receive an email if a spot opens in the class and you are next on the waiting list. School of Logic electives (Tech, Cotillion and Social Dance) are term-based and always have available seats.
