    -are cadets allowed to modify their approved course schedule? (course time/availability conflict?)
    -are cadet allowed to withdraw from a class (W) that is not a required course for graduation as long as they are still on track to graduate and stay full time? Or withdraw from a class and reschedule it for a subsequent semester?

    I can only speak for DET 157, but my DS has had no issues modifying his approved course schedule. He had a one on one earlier this month with his APAS and updated his plan.

    I know that it is permissible to withdraw and audit a class as long as your total credits for the semester do not fall below the minimum required for ROTC. If your total credit fall below the minimum then you have to get permission as a special student status for that semester.

    +1. You need to get permission, or at least consult, with your ROTC adviser first... at least in NROTC. I would expect that to hold across the board but don't guarantee it.

    What did your ROTC instructor tell you when you asked her/him??? Which I'm sure you did before you asked a bunch of total strangers on the internet.

    Clarkson, I always love it when you end your posts with that.

    True and wise, of course. But perhaps the instructor is one of those "don't bug me right now, kid" types and the deadline is fast approaching. By all means, check with your school's registrar and your ROTC instructor after getting an idea of what the likely answer is, but it's not like coming here often results in bad advice. The opposite is true more often than not.

    That said, "go ask your ROTC instructor" is probably the very best advice... so I'll just shut up now. Ha. ClarksonArmy rules.
