A student may without permission or extra charge undertake during a college career a four-course load up to a maximum of three times. Each qualifying student has until the end of the tenth day of classes of any term within the maximum of three to add a fourth course or to drop a fourth course elected after the start of the term. Note: It is not possible to elect four courses until the term in question has begun. If a fourth course is dropped later than the deadline specified, one of the three uses of this provision is thereby lost. A fourth course may be dropped until the end of the sixth week of classes. After that, the rules for withdrawal from courses apply. A student who has already exhausted the quota of three four-course loads may undertake additional four-course loads only by permission of the Registrar; the student is charged extra tuition in the amount of one third of the normal. Such students should be sure to note that the decision to drop such a fourth course after the tenth day of classes does not result in full exemption from the extra tuition, but instead one reduced with time according to the tuition refund policy.
