Add/Drop/Withdraw from Classes

Adding a Class

Open classes may be added by registering on the RCC website during registration periods through the first week of term. For waitlisted classes you must email your instructor and request permission to add the class. If the instructor agrees then forward the email to, be sure to include your name, RCC student ID and the course and section numbers.  The deadline to register is Thursday of the first week of the term for summer classes, and Friday of the first week of the term for fall, winter and spring classes.

Non-Attendance Drop

Instructors may drop students who register for classes and do not attend the first class session during the first week of the term, or for online classes do not submit an assignment by Wednesday of the first week of the term. This procedure applies only to credit classes. A 100% tuition refund will be applied to the accounts of students who have been administratively dropped.

NOTE: This procedure does not relieve students of the responsibility to drop. Students need to officially withdraw from classes that begin at irregular intervals.

Students unable to attend the first class should contact the instructor prior to the class meeting if they wish to avoid being dropped for non-attendance from class.

Official Drop or Withdrawal from Classes

Students may drop classes online in myRogue/student portal through the deadline to drop classes, see the Academic Calendar. Students who officially drop receive a full refund. There is no notation of the class on a transcript. 

Beginning on the first Friday (first Thursday for summer) of the term through the eighth Friday of fall, winter and spring terms (sixth Friday of summer term) students may withdraw online. There is no refund for a withdrawal and a grade of W is noted on a transcript. The date the student withdraws online is the official last date of attendance.  The official drop and withdrawal dates are date stamped in the college Student Information System.

Unofficial Drop or Withdrawal from Classes

Students who stop attending but do not officially drop or withdraw receive the grade that they earned based on syllabus requirements.  If that grade is D, F - Incomplete, or NP the instructor must enter the last date of attendance on the faculty portal

In an online class, the last date of attendance is the last day that a student engaged in academically related activity such as submitting an assignment or a test.  It is not the last date the student logged on, but did not submit assigned work.
