Schedule Change Policy

Schedule changes cannot be guaranteed once students have signed up for their preferred courses. The master schedule is built on the basis of student choices of courses; therefore, class size and arrangement of time periods for courses can prohibit possible changes. A schedule change may be requested during the first 5 days of the semester. The student must follow established school procedures and course changes will depend on space availability.

Schedule changes may be made only for sound academic reasons and are an exception, not the rule. Requests will not be considered until the Schedule Change Request Form is filled out completely, signed by the designated persons and submitted to the counseling department. Schedule changes, which could be initiated by a counselor, will only be made for the following reasons and must be approved by the administration:


  1. The student needs to enroll in a required class to meet graduation requirements.
  2. The student is enrolled in a class for which he/she has already received credit.
  3. The student has not met the prerequisites for the class.
  4. The student has an incomplete schedule.
  5. The teacher recommends a student move to a different course that matches their academic needs.


Note: The following reasons do not qualify a student for a schedule change: teacher preference, personality conflicts, work load, desire to maintain a high GPA, desire to be with friends.

Any classes dropped beyond the first 15 days of the semester a record will show the course and a notation of withdrawal will be made. No Changes will be made after September 29, 2017 for 1st semester and February 15, 2018 for 2nd semester.

WP – withdrawn, passing grade, NO credit
WF – withdrawn, failing grade, NO credit

Students are asked to follow their present schedule and complete any assignments/assessments until their request for a change has been fully processed by the counselor and an administrator.
