  • You will handle your own drops on line without signature. Please complete the drops as soon as you know that you will not remain enrolled, since this may open a seat for someone who really wants it. After Feb 6th, you may leave a class only by requesting a withdrawal and using the paper Withdrawal Form. Please note that the Committee on Academic Standing (CAS) rarely approves late drop requests.  The last day to withdraw from a course is April 11th.
  • During the first three days of the semester , you may add open classes on line without a signature. There are a few exceptions, including the Scribner Seminars and sections where the faculty member has made special arrangements with the Registrar's Office. .
  • A fair number of sections have waitlists associated with them. During the first three days of the semester students are enrolled automatically from the wait list, as seats become available. If you are on a waitlist, keep checking to see if you have been enrolled. If you no longer wish to be enrolled, please delete the waitlisted course from the pending section of your schedule.
  • After the add deadline, you will need an instructor’s approval to add anything to your schedule.  This can be in the form of an email and you can ask your instructor to email registrar@skidmore.edu.

  • Starting on January 25, you may only enroll in a section with written approval. We want students to be settled into their classes by the end of the first week.
  • Any change in registration after Jan 30 will be reviewed by CAS, and late changes may be denied if the rationale is not deemed appropriate. Please make your enrollment decisions on time and begin your academic work immediately. This is important for getting off to the right start.
