Repeal Sweeping Changes to UNC's Drop/Add Policy

"A policy passed by the UNC Board of Governors in April establishes a systemwide drop period — shortening UNC-CH’s current drop period from eight weeks to ten days. Any course dropped after the 10th day of the semester will appear as a withdrawal on students’ transcripts." --Sara Salinas, The Daily Tar Heel

A one-size-fits-all solution to a non-existent problem on UNC-Chapel Hill's campus threatens to take away a critical safety net. Expanded in 2004, Chapel Hill's Drop/Add policy has allowed students to explore more rigorous schedules and take risks with challenging courses without the fear of potentially sabotaging their own transcripts. 
This sweeping change will impact not only Chapel Hill, but each university within the UNC system. It is important that the UNC Board of Governors is aware of students' disapproval of this policy.
