IAIA - Institute of American Indian Arts

Changes in Enrollment

ADD/DROP

Courses may be added or dropped through Friday of the first week of classes in the fall and spring semester, provided the student is enrolled. Courses may be dropped within the first two days during each of the three summer sessions. See Academic Calendar for details. In order to add/drop a course a student must submit a completed Change of Registration Form to the Registrar’s office by the designated deadline (see Academic Calendar). The student’s advisor must sign the Change of Registration form before the student is officially added to the course. If the advisor is unavailable the department chair or College Dean may sign this form.

WITHDRAWAL FROM A COURSE

Students may officially withdraw from a course with their advisor’s permission before the last day to withdraw (see Academic Calendar). The student’s advisor must sign the Change of Registration Form before it is filed in the Registrar’s Office. The “withdrawal” will be recorded as a “W” on the student transcript.

WITHDRAWAL FROM THE COLLEGE

Withdrawal from IAIA has both an academic and a financial impact on a student’s records. A student who is planning to withdraw must complete a Withdrawal Form in order to withdraw officially from IAIA. Students who do not complete the Withdrawal Form may receive failing grades for all registered courses which may adversely affect eligibility for re-admittance. Completed paperwork must be submitted to the Registrar immediately.

MEDICAL WITHDRAWAL FROM THE COLLEGE

If a student must leave IAIA due to a death in the family, a sudden illness or any other valid reason, but plans to return to IAIA, the student should do the following:

  • Complete a Medical Withdrawal/Check-out Form in order to withdraw officially from IAIA. Students who do not follow this procedure may receive failing grades for all registered courses which may adversely affect eligibility for re-admittance. Completed paperwork must be submitted to the Registrar within two weeks of discontinuing classes.
  • (On-campus students): Notify the Residential Coordinator and/or the Residential Assistant immediately before leaving the dorm. If neither is available, call the Office of Admissions and leave a message regarding the emergency.
  • (Off-campus students): Call the Office of Admissions, Records, and Enrollment at 1-800-804-
    6422 or 505.424.2332 and leave a message regarding the emergency. Upon returning to IAIA, the student will be required to show documentation of the emergency.
