In light of the unanticipated transition to online instruction for the remainder of the semester, the Academic Deans of the undergraduate colleges have agreed to modify the policies below for the spring 2020 semester. 

Deadline to Drop a Class without a Recorded Grade

The deadline to drop courses without record via the MyCampus portal has been extended until 11:59 pm Pacific on Monday, April 6th. Please note that students must remain enrolled in at least 3 total course credits to maintain full-time status. Students should consult with their academic adviser and course instructor before dropping a course.

Students and advisers should be aware that a decision to drop or withdraw from a course, or to drop below full-time status, may have serious adverse consequences. Dropping courses may delay progress toward graduation and/or affect financial aid. For these reasons, students are encouraged to confer with the appropriate offices and their academic adviser(s) before taking action to drop or withdraw from a course or courses. After a course is dropped, it will not be added back.

Questions regarding financial aid should be directed to financial_aid@pitzer.edu, questions about student accounts should go to student_accounts@pitzer.edu, and questions about degree process can be directed to registrar@pitzer.edu. All of these offices are fully staffed and ready to help answer questions.

There will be bumps as we transition to online instruction for the remainder of the semester. Updates and guidance will be disseminated as decisions are made that impact faculty and student academic work. We hope that this extension of the drop deadline will ease some of the concerns students have about completing coursework this semester, and offer time and space to make important decisions in what is a confusing and stressful set of circumstances. 

Please know our offices are fully staffed and ready to help answer questions. Please continue to monitor your Pitzer email for important communications and updates.

Be well,
