     of classes in a semester via Banner Web.  Students should check the academic      calendar for all important dates concerning dropping a course, adding a course, or      changing the status of a course.  Deadlines are enforced.

     Drop Procedure -- Students may drop classes via Banner Web through the last day
     to add a class.  After that date (consult the Academic Calendar) the drop process
     begins with the advisor, and procedures are printed on the drop form.  The drop      transaction is not final until the form is submitted to the Registrar's Office.  Failure to      complete the process may result in loss of credit (if the course is not added properly)
     or receipt of a failing grade (if course is not dropped properly).
