First Day of Class Meeting Drop Policy

Students must attend all courses for which they registered the first day the class meets to affirm their registration.

Faculty may drop those students not present from the course. Therefore, students must review their schedule online before the last day to add to ensure that their schedule is correct. If a course remains on the student schedule despite lack of attendance on the first day, the student must drop the course online during the drop period to remove the course.

Faculty who wish to drop students may do so by sending an email to firstdaydrops@bates.edu. Please include the department/program and course number in the subject line.

Students have final responsibility for ensuring that their schedules are correct and should come to the Registrar and Academic Systems office immediately if there are any discrepancies.
