A workshop, or weekend intensive, is a short course that takes place over a Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, or some combination thereof. For most weekend workshops, a student must drop or add a workshop by 11:59 p.m. on the Thursday before the workshop starts. Students should always check the schedule to confirm the add/drop deadlines for any weekend workshop. Because the drop policy for workshops is more restrictive than for the university’s regularly offered academic courses, students are encouraged to speak with the sponsoring program and/or instructor to ensure that the workshop will provide what they want before registering. A student receiving financial aid should be aware that dropping a workshop late in the semester may affect their aid eligibility, particularly if this action reduces the number of registered credits below the minimum amount required to receive aid. Students should contact the Financial Aid Office before dropping any workshop or course to see if their aid may be jeopardized.

How to Register for Workshops

Students register for workshops through MyNaropa. Only those workshops listed in the academic course schedule are available for credit. For most workshops, the deadline to register for, drop, or add workshops is 11:59 p.m. on the Thursday before the course begins. Full payment is required within one week of registration.

Withdrawals from workshops are not permitted by the university, except in the case of a documented medical or family emergency. Failure to attend a workshop will result in the grade of “F” for that workshop on the student’s transcript.
