Offsetting equal credits and course fees

During the 12 through the 25 day from the official start date of the semester, students are permitted to offset equal credits and course fees within the same academic discipline (for example, switching from one ENG course to another ENG course, but not from an ENG course to a MTH course) with the submission of the written recommendation of their instructors through the add/drop procedure.

For credits or fees added in excess of credits dropped, additional tuition and fees must be paid. During this period, grades of "W" will not be assigned to courses dropped through the offset process. Offset cannot be done between sessions (for example, dropping an ENG course during the first 7.5 week session and adding an ENG course during the second 7.5 week session or dropping a MTH course during the Spring 7 week session and adding a MTH course during the Summer 7 week session). Financial aid recipients considering an offset should check with the Financial Aid Office prior to submitting an add/drop form to request an offset.

If you are a financial aid recipient who has completely withdrawn from Delta, please refer to Attendance Policy for details of the Return of Funds Policy or contact the Financial Aid Office.
