Dropping a Class

During the Registration Period 

During the pre-registration, open registration, and late registration period of each term, adding and dropping of classes can be managed online by logging into MySPC and accessing TexanConnect. View the SPC Academic Calendar for all registration periods.

You CANNOT add, drop, or switch classes through TexanConnect after the registration period is over. 

After the Registration Period through the Official Census Date 

To drop a class, students must  submit a Student Initiated Drop Form. This should be used only if dropping a course. There is no fee to drop a course.

To request a schedule change (add a class), students must submit a Student Schedule Change Form.  If a student wishes to add a class after the late registration period and before the official census date, permission must be granted by the instructor for the class. Permission from the instructor must be submitted via email to registrar@southplainscollege.edu. Under no circumstance may a class be added after the date indicated in the official calendar for adding a course.
