Adding, Dropping and Withdrawing from Courses

Students wishing to add, drop or withdraw from a course must do so in writing. Add/Drop/Withdraw forms are available from the Registrar in the Main Office. Students may add, drop or withdraw from a course as follows:

Weeks 1 and 2: Students may add or drop courses without academic penalty. No new courses may be added after week two.

Weeks 3 and 4: Students may drop courses without academic penalty.

Weeks 5 and 6: Students may drop courses and receive a “W” on their transcript (see Grading and Academic Penalties).

Weeks 7 and 8: Students may drop courses with the consent of the instructor and Dean of Instruction and receive a “WP” (Withdrew Passing) or “WF” (Withdrew Failing) on their transcript (see Grading and Academic Penalties).

After week eight, students will be permitted to withdraw from courses without academic penalty for medical or family emergencies only. Students are required to provide the Registrar with valid documentation for all medical or family emergencies. Students withdrawing from courses after week eight for any reason other than a medical or family emergency will receive the grade of ‘F’ in those courses.

CJC Catalog
The Word

“The CJC provides some of the most in depth study of jazz out there. A core curriculum of not two, but four semesters of jazz ear training and hands on jazz theoryand improvisation, culminating in transcription and analysis of the greatest jazz artists of all time. The teachers are wonderful, organized and communicate concepts in a way that clearly transforms each and every student.”
