Enrollment Services

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. See the online Registration Schedule for specific days and times. For waitlisted classes, or to enter a class after week one, you must email your instructor and request a permission code to add the class. If the instructor agrees, then you may register yourself through the add/drop deadline, Monday of week two. After the add/drop deadline, forward the email to [email protected] to be registered. 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 in-person or ZOOM classes and do not attend at least 50% of the class sessions during the first week of the term or for web classes’ students may be dropped if they do not submit an assignment by Wednesday of the first week. This procedure does not apply to late start classes or non-credit classes, and only applies to students who have registered prior to the first day of the term. 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 drop or 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, 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 second Tuesday of the term through the eighth Friday of fall, winter and spring terms (5th Thursday of summer term) students may withdraw online or contact the Registrar office if they encounter problems ([email protected]).  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 Withdrawal from Classes

Students who stop attending but do not officially drop, withdraw or notify the Registrar office, receive the grade that they earned based on syllabus requirements. If that grade is F, Incomplete, or NP the instructor must enter the last date of attendance on the online grade roster.

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. 

Auditing a Class

Audit (AU) is an enrollment status, which allows students to take credit classes but not receive the credit or a grade. Students receiving financial aid should consult with their Financial Aid Advisor. (Financial Aid will not pay for audits.) Students wishing to audit a course must do so by submitting the Audit Course Request form to the Registrar's Office by the withdraw/audit deadlines. For dates, please see the Academic Calendar.
