Adding & Dropping Courses

Student in the Student Pavilion

Policy Concerning Adding & Dropping Courses

Courses cannot be added after the deadline listed in the current course catalog. Courses can be dropped only with the consent of a college counselor.

Students who officially withdraw from a course before the end of the 10th week of classes (during the fall and spring semesters) will receive a "W" for the course. After the 10th week, the student is expected to take the final examination and will receive the grade earned in the course.

Bachelor of Applied Technology Program

Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Applied Technology Program must notify the program's coordinator in advance of adding or dropping courses.

Policy Concerning Student Withdrawals

As a result of changes in the Texas Education Code, students enrolling for the first time in a Texas public institution of higher education in the fall of 2007, or thereafter, will not be permitted to withdraw from more than a total of six courses (no minimum number of credit hours on each course) in which the student is officially enrolled during the student’s period of undergraduate study at all such institutions.

Please Note: This includes any course a transfer student has dropped at another Texas institution of higher education. If a course is dropped before the Official Reporting Day (to appear on the transcript) or the student is completely withdrawing from college, this policy does not apply.

Excluded from the six-course withdrawal limit are those for which the student can show good cause for course withdrawal.

Dropping a course for “good cause” includes:

  • A severe illness or other debilitating condition that affects the student’s ability to satisfactorily complete the course.
  • The student’s responsibility for the care of a sick, injured, or needy person if the provision of that care affects the student’s ability to satisfactorily complete the course.
  • The death of a person who is considered to be a member of the student’s family or who is otherwise considered to have a sufficiently close relationship to the student that the person’s death is considered to be a showing of good cause.
  • The active duty service as a member of the Texas National Guard or the armed forces of the United States of either the student or a person who is considered to be a member of the student’s family or who is otherwise considered to have a sufficiently close relationship to the student that the person’s active military service is considered to be a showing of good cause.
  • The change of the student’s work schedule that is beyond the control of the student, and that affects the student’s ability to satisfactorily complete the course.
  • Other good cause as determined by the Brazosport College Dean of Students or designee.

Approval of good cause requires that the student provide official and appropriate documentation of third party verification for the qualified exclusion to be included in the student’s official educational record at Brazosport College.
