Getting Involved on Campus

Scheduling & Enrollment Resources
What resources can help if I cannot finish my course(s)?
If a student cannot complete their semester coursework due to a medical or disability reason, there are a few options available, that should be discussed with your RCPD specialist and an academic advisor.
- To drop one or more courses, students should check the course schedule and academic calendar for drop deadlines. It is also imperative to consult the Office of Financial Aid prior to dropping any courses.
- Another option may be to see if you qualify for an incomplete in your course(s). An incomplete could allow you additional time after the semester ends to complete course requirements. Incomplete eligibility is determined by the instructor of the course.
- Requesting a Medical Withdrawal is an additional option available to all students. All requests for consideration of Withdrawal for Medical Reasons must be initiated in the Office of the Associate Dean (or designee) of the student's college or the Neighborhood Student Success Collaborative (NSSC).
Can RCPD assist with a course override?
RCPD does not have the ability to assist with course overrides. Courses have capacity limits for a variety of limits (room fire codes, teaching load per faculty member etc..) and various pre-requisites. Students should work directly with their academic advisor and/or department to discuss schedule options.
