Changing Your Schedule

Any kind of change to your schedule will put you off track, and we can no longer guarantee full-time status,  4.0 credits per mod, or the maximization of financial aid. Best rule of thumb, do not fail a class or change your schedule.
Dropping
  • If a student does not have a class, they will become a drop.
  • If you do not attend the first week of class both online and on-ground, you may be dropped
  • If you do not attend for 14 consecutive days, you will be dropped (both online and on-ground).
  • If you drop the first week, without posting attendance on-ground or online, you will not be charged or get a grade.
  • If you drop the first week, but attend any portion (on-ground or online), you will be charged (should be pro-rated) and will get a “W” Grade.
  • If you drop after the first week, will receive an automatic letter grade of “F”
  • Tip: After the first week, might as well finish the course and try as best as possible to get an D or better.
  • It is always better to drop at the end of your term* because when you do, you do not increase your student debt!**
Online
  • To be considered and on-ground student, you must take 51% of your courses on ground. Vice-versa for online students.
  • Students can take an online class only if they are at or above a 2.5 GPAor with special approval from their associate Dean.
  • If you need to be put online for the mod, the last day to enroll for online classes is Tuesday of the first week (that’s if a class you need is available and there is seats open). No exceptions.
  • If students want to switch to completely online they will be dropped from CCSD and must apply to  Independence University (out sister school).
  • If you have an online class you must take it and pass so that you don’t not go off track.
Switching Day to Evening and Vice-versa 
  • In order to switch you must switch before the mod starts (the week before)
  • You can only switch if the classless you need are available, if they are not available available you cannot switch.
