A schedule adjustment period is provided for students who have registered and find it necessary to revise their course selections. Schedule adjustments must be made within the time limits established by the College. For information on dropping a course with a refund, see the Tuition Refund Policy. To view course section drop and withdrawal dates, see the class schedule.

For information on dropping a course with a refund, see the Tuition Refund Policy. Late adding course sections is defined as registering for a course after the first full day of the course section start date. For example, if a course section begins on May 1, registering for the course on May 2 or within that week is considered late adding, and will need departmental and faculty permission. Be sure to verify with the Financial Aid Office for coverage using your financial aid.

Late Add/Added Seat

If a course section is full, and has not yet started, students may request an added seat from the academic department. If the student request is granted, permission will be documented in the system, and the student notified to contact the Registrar’s Office immediately. There is a two-day holding period for the process to be completed.   

Students must follow KCC procedures for adding a course section late. Efforts are made to meet student requests, but late add requests are not guaranteed to be approved. Students are encouraged to work with Academic Advising to schedule courses in advance to avoid the need for schedule adjustments.

Each student is accountable for any missed work. It is at the instructor’s discretion on how attendance is tracked. In some cases, a student may not have the opportunity to submit late work and/or make up missed time.

Students who add after the drop/add refund deadline of a course section will not be able receive a refund. If you drop a course section after the add/drop period, a grade of “W”, (withdraw) will be on your academic transcript. Financial aid sources are not always available for course sections added after the drop/add refund deadline date. If you are looking to have financial aid pay for a late add course section, verify this with the Financial Aid Office prior to registration. Schedule adjustments must be made within the time limits established by the College. For information on dropping a course with a refund, see the Tuition Refund Policy.

To add a course section after it’s start date, student’s have a period of one week from the start to contact the academic department for late admittance consideration.

  3. If it is not possible to add the student, the process ends
  4. If yes, the department chair, or designee, has the student contact the Financial Aid Office to ensure the student’s financial aid will cover the cost of the course. If it is too late for the aid to cover the cost, the student may continue the process and pay out of pocket.
  5. Student then contact’s the Registrar’s office to obtain the Late Add Registration Form

Course Cancellations

The College reserves the right to cancel courses before, during, or at the conclusion of the registration period.

Auditing a Course

You may audit a class for enjoyment, personal exploration, gaining insight into a new subject, or for other reasons. Auditing students are expected to participate in the class by attending and completing all assignments. Those who do not wish to complete daily assignments may be required to develop an “audit contract” with the course instructor. Audited courses receive no academic credit and therefore do not apply towards graduation requirements, financial aid eligibility or athletic team eligibility. See the Grade of “X” (Audit) section on our grading system.

A change from audit to credit status must be made before seven-eighths (7/8) of the duration of the course has elapsed. Course requirements must have been completed prior to the request for this change and must have the consent of the instructor.


Withdrawals may be processed for single courses or as a complete withdrawal from college. You may process withdrawals either on the Student Self-Service system or by submitting a withdrawal form to the Registrar’s Office; the Eastern Academic, Grahl, or Fehsenfeld Centers; or RMTC office. If you need assistance to withdraw, contact an academic advisor.

Course Withdrawal

You may withdraw from a course after the drop/refund period and prior to seven eighths (7/8) of the duration of the course. Withdrawing will generate a grade of “W” on your academic record for each course withdrawal. There are no tuition or fees refunded when you withdraw from a course.

Course Withdrawal Form (PDF)

If you withdraw during the final one-eighth (1/8) of the duration of a course, a grade of “F” will be entered on your academic record for each course withdrawal. If you stop attending a course and do not formally withdraw, the instructor will assign a final grade based upon progress toward completion of course objectives.

Withdrawal from College

Withdrawal from college is defined as the student’s formal withdrawal from all courses currently in progress.

Any currently enrolled student who is called for military duty shall be dropped from all uncompleted courses without grade and will be granted a refund of all tuition and fees paid upon receipt of a copy of military orders to the Registrar’s office.
