Changes in Registration
To make changes in registration online, log on to my.american.edu and go to  ADD/DROP COURSE.
Adding Courses
        Students may add a course through the second week of classes for the fall or spring, or the equivalent for a summer session.
         In addition to any course prerequisites and required authorizations, approvals are required for the following: Students adding business courses must obtain approval from the Kogod School Undergraduate or Graduate Program Office.
         Students adding communication courses must have approval from the School of Communication.
         Cooperative Education students must have worked directly with the Career Center and have signed approval.

Dropping Courses
         Students may drop a course through the semester midterm date for the fall or spring, or the equivalent for a summer session. When a student withdraws from a course during the first two weeks of a semester (or the equivalent for summer), the course will not appear on the transcript; withdrawal thereafter is noted with a “W” in place of a grade. Note:Discontinuing attendance in class or notifying an instructor of a status change does not constitute an official action.
Approvals are required for the following:
      Withdrawal from courses used to satisfy the University Mathematics Requirement requires the approval of an academic advisor based on the placement recommendations made by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.

      International students with F-1 or J-1 visas should consult first with an international student advisor in International Student and Scholar Services regarding how to maintain their status.

      Athletes must not drop below 12 credit hours without authorization of the director of athletics.

      Kogod students dropping business courses must obtain approval from the Kogod School Undergraduate or Graduate Program Office.

      Cooperative Education students must have prior approval from the Career Center.

Grade Type Option

      Students may change grade type options (A–F or Pass/Fail) on the web through the second week of classes for the fall or spring, or the equivalent for a summer session. 
Note:Changing grade type is not permitted for courses that require a specific grade type, such as Pass/Fail only.

Withdrawal from the University

Degree students who withdraw completely from the university must file an official Withdrawal Request Form though the Registrar’s Office. Students on academic probation will be required to obtain the signature of their academic dean before they will be permitted to withdraw.
