  • The Spring I/Spring II terms do not break for the Carthage Spring Recess.
  • Classes will not be held on Labor Day (Sept. 4, 2017), Memorial Day (May 28, 2018), or Wednesday, July 4, 2018. Classes will be rescheduled for the next day, and may occur in a different class location.

Please note:

  • “Last Add Deadline” refers to the last day for online registration. After this date, a student must gain permission from the faculty member and registrar’s office to enroll in the course.
  • “Drop Deadline” refers to the last day a student may drop a class without penalty.
  • If a student withdraws from a class between the “Drop Deadline” and the “Withdraw Deadline”, the class will remain on the student’s transcript as a ‘W’ but will not be factored into the student’s GPA. The student will still be billed for a class that has been withdrawn.
