What are the final withdrawal dates?

  • The drop/add deadlines at the beginning of a term are listed in the Academic Calendar and are communicated via social media and the website.  
  • Please review the Schedule of Classes for the last day to withdraw each semester. 

Where do I send a student requesting a waiver of a prerequisite?

If a student says he/she DOES have the prerequisite, but myShelton (Banner) is not allowing the student to register, send the student to the Office of Admissions and Records for assistance in determining the source of the problem.  If a student does not have the prerequisite(s) listed in the college catalog, send the student to the appropriate dean’s office (academic services, Martin 2604 for academic and allied health classes; technical services, Martin 1376 for technical classes).  The student will either have a conversation with the appropriate division chair or be asked to submit the information necessary to determine if a waiver of the prerequisite requirement can be done given the student’s particular circumstances.

Where do I send a student who was dropped for non-payment?

We publish our dates for dropping for non-payment (often referred to as purging) well in advance and communicate regularly via various avenues to our prospective students (social media, website, email).  If a student has been dropped for non-payment it may not be likely that he or she will be allowed to re-enroll in the course.  For those who believe they have extenuating circumstances, we have an appeals process.  Students will need to complete the Request for Review  (link to attached form) form and submit it to any of the first-floor offices (admissions, financial aid, advising, or cashiers on either Martin or Fredd) where it will be reviewed.  Appeals are reviewed frequently during busy periods.

What if I want to let an extra student into my full class?

There are two options for students wanting to enroll into a full class.
  • Student can add themselves to the wait list for that class and if anyone drops, a seat will become available.
  • Student may request an override within the supervising dean's office. 
Both offices are located on the Martin Campus (Academic – Room 3604  /  Technical – Room 1376).
