The last day that a student may add or drop a course is Friday of the first week of the course. To add or drop any course after the course begins, a student must complete a course add/drop request which is located on the student portal at https://online.midwestern.edu/student/mwuadddrop.cgi
Students are able to submit "add" requests for most electives, but assistance from an academic advisor, program director or dean is required to add core courses and restricted electives. Any course "add" request submitted on behalf of a student, must first be approved by the student before it is forwarded for final approval and Registrar processing. The status of approvals and final processing can be tracked online.
Courses dropped after the first Friday of the week in which the course starts may be recorded as "W" (Withdrawal), "WF" (Withdrawal/Failing), or "F" (Failing). Grades will be noted on the transcript in accordance with the college guidelines stated in the catalog.
