Add/Drop

Statement of Policy

Excelsior College offers the opportunity for students who are registered for a course/nursing theory conference examination (NTCX) to drop a course/NTCX and add a new course/NTCX up until 11:59 pm ET on Wednesday of the first week of the term. Students must drop a course/NTCX and add a new course/NTCX at the same time (one transaction). Students can only drop/add within the same trimester. Students who drop a course/NTCX but do not add a course/NTCX during the add/drop period will be refunded in accordance with the tuition refund schedule. Please note that dropping, but not adding an approved course/NTCX may impact your financial aid.

The UExcel examinations and Excelsior College Examinations in nursing do not apply to this policy.

Procedure

Students who wish to drop a course/NTCX and add a new course/NTCX must login to their My Excelsior page and select “Drop, Add/Drop and Withdraw from Courses/NTCX” by 11:59 pm ET on Wednesday of the first week of the term.

Military students using Tuition Assistance must also have the Tuition Assistance form for their new course in by 11:59 pm ET on Wednesday of the first week of the term.

Army students are required to have Tuition Assistance approved through ArmyIgnitED the Sunday before the term start. Students who wish to drop a course can do so with no penalty within 15 calendar days of the course start, but no Tuition Assistance will be funded for courses after the start date of the course.
