Additional Information for above request (if needed):

I understand that, in striving for equitable treatment of all students, the Philip Merrill College of Journalism strictly adheres to the university policies regarding registration and schedule adjustment. I have read the deadline dates for registration/adjustment transactions given in the Schedule of Classes as well as all academic regulations outlined in the Undergraduate Catalog. I understand that exceptions to these policies and deadlines are granted by the College only under EXTREME AND UNUSUAL CIRCUMSTANCES .

Note: Dropping classes could negatively affect financial aid, scholarships and/or campus housing eligibility. It is ultimately the student's responsibility to consult with a financial aid counselor and/or resident life to determine the consequences of such an action.
