Maintaining an accurate record of course enrollment in ExCollege courses can be a challenge because Tufts students can add and drop classes online and without notice in the first two weeks of the semester. Therefore, it is important for you to keep a record of attendance for each class meeting and compare it with the official course enrollment posted on the iSIS system.
Once the first two weeks have passed, students can no longer add your course online. They must enroll using a paper “add/drop” form which requires your signature and that of the student’s advisor. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors have until approximately 5 weeks into the semester to drop a course without any record of having enrolled in it on their transcript. First-year students have 10 weeks to drop without record of enrollment. After the 5 or 10 weeks, students who drop a course will receive a “W” on the transcript.
Courses that have an enrollment of fewer than 8 students will be subject to review. University policy indicates that such low enrollment courses may be cancelled.
