Douglas College offers many courses at several different times during the week so students can find it easier to fit all their courses into their schedules. The different times that a course is offered are called sections.  

When changing one course for another, be sure to add the new course before you drop the old one. You may find the course you want to add is not available. If the course is available, don't forget to drop the course you don't want to keep.

Important Note: If you are replacing one section for a different section of the same course, you must drop the one you don't want before adding the new one. You must ensure there is space available in the section you want. Once you have dropped your original choice, you may not be able to get it back (even if there is no space in the other section).  

You may wish to use the Conditional ADD/DROP tool (see below) to help with changing sections.  
 
Make sure you are familiar with the NEW Refund Policy before making any changes to your registration, including changing section, as the refund policy will be strictly enforced.

Check Conditional Add/Drop when you want to drop a course from your schedule on the condition that you can add a new course to your schedule without error.

Auditing a course requires normal application, registration and fee payment. The notation Audit is placed on the student's permanent record, beside each course audited, if classes are attended regularly. Poor attendance results in a grade of W. Usually, auditing students are not required to complete assignments, tests or examinations. 

All students will be registered as credit students. A student has until the end of the second week of classes (Friday) to change their status from credit to audit. This change must be done by submitting the Audit Agreement form.

Douglas College, under the conditions and procedures listed below, makes available to students an alternative to regular classroom instruction when this is appropriate and feasible. The alternative allows completion of courses by independent study, under the guidance of a College faculty member, and consistent with current College policies. 

  • A guided study course is approved only under special circumstances, such as where a course is not currently offered this semester, a student is unable to attend a regular course offering, or the course is intended to be delivered by independent study. 
  • The regular course fees will apply in all cases. 
  • Only courses listed in the Program and Course Catalogue may be adapted for guided study. Students must register for a course in the Catalogue and the goals and objectives of the course must remain unchanged. 
  • Students are responsible for approaching the instructor or relevant Department Chair/Coordinator to request a guided study.  
  • A Douglas College instructor must be willing and available to participate with the particular student before the contract is approved. 
  • The Dean’s approval is required before a guided study course can commence. 
  • Grades awarded for courses offered in guided study format will follow the normal grading policies at the College. 
  • Due to fee payment arrangements for the instructor's services, there are no refunds once a guided study course has started. 
  • If students are registered for other courses during the current semester, the additional guided study course(s) must not cause the student to exceed the normal permitted academic load. 

Note: For the benefit of students, the above information is provided by Enrolment Services. Anyone requiring information on the full policy and procedure should consult with the Department Head.

Student Success Advisors are available to provide academic advising for domestic and international students.
