Academic Policies

The academic programs available at the Milton Campus are offered through the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) and students are therefore subject to its academic policies.

Drop/Add

Courses can be dropped or added during the drop/add period each term without penalty. Classes that meet for the first time after drop/add closes can be dropped without penalty or fee liability if the request is submitted by the end of the next business day after the first class meeting. Students must first drop the course with their college advising office and then submit a written explanation to the Office of the University Registrar. This does not apply to laboratory sections.

After drop/add, a course can be dropped by college petition up to the deadline listed in the academic calendar. A grade of W will appear on the transcript, and students are liable for course fees. All drops after drop/add must be completed through the CALS Dean’s Office by the deadline.

  • Students at the Milton Campus only get two “free” drops.
  • Failure to attend a class does not constitute a drop.
  • After the deadline, students may petition to drop provided they can document sufficient reason, usually hardship or medical condition occurring after the deadline.
  • Note: Students who receive funding from Bright Futures are required to reimburse the university for any dropped course.
“Free” Drops

A student who wants to drop a course and has “free” drops remaining must fill out the CALS Undergraduate Drop Form, see their adviser for a signature, and then bring the signed form to the Student Services desk in Building 4900 of the Milton Campus prior to the published deadline. The course will be dropped using ISIS in the CALS Dean’s Office.

Third (or more) Drops

A student who wants to drop a course, does not have “free” drops remaining and can document extenuating circumstances, must fill out the CALS Petition for Third Course Drop Form, gather documentation of extenuative circumstances, see their instructor for completion of the Instructor Evaluation Form, see their adviser for a signature, and then make an appointment to speak with the associate dean. Approved drops will be processed in the CALS Dean’s Office.

Late Adds

A student who wishes to add a course after the drop/add period must fill out the CALS Undergraduate Late Add/Schedule Change Form. The student must obtain approval from the instructor or department offering the course(s) and the department must give permission to add the course(s) in ISIS (Department Control Permission). The student needs to see their adviser for a signature on the CALS form and then visit the Student Services desk in Building 4900 of the Milton Campus. Approval by the Associate Deans may be required. If the course is approved and the department has given permission, the add will be made in the CALS Dean’s Office. Fees must be paid within 48 hours of adding the course to avoid a late payment penalty.

Schedule Corrections

A student who needs to change sections of the same course or make another schedule adjustment after the drop/add period such as changing from MAC 2311 to MAC 1147 or from CHM 2045 to CHM 1025 must fill out the CALS Undergraduate Late Add/Schedule Change form. The student must obtain approval from the instructor or department offering the course being added and the department must give permission to add the course in ISIS. The student needs to see their adviser for a signature on the CALS form and then bring the form to the Student Services desk in Building 4900 of the Milton Campus. If the department has given permission for the add, the schedule change will be processed in the CALS Dean’s Office.

College Probation

A student whose overall grade point average falls below 2.0 is placed on college probation. The associate dean will notify the student that he/she is on probation and must remove all deficit points in two semesters or face college suspension.

During college suspension a student cannot register as a College of Agricultural and Life Sciences student.
