### Additional Information

**This form is for students who are not able to self-enroll in BCTC Mathematics or Statistics
courses in Peoplesoft.**

To prevent incidental drop for non-payment, requests placed on or immediately following payment deadlines (such as the Friday before classes start) will be processed in the order received once drops for non-payment are complete.

**This form cannot be used to switch to a different section of the same course.**

Drop backs are intended for students who are currently enrolled in one of the following math courses: MAT 011, MAT 075, MAT 085, MAT 150, MAT 150/100, MAT 171, MAT 170, MA 111, or MAT 175 and would like to drop back to a lower level course. Please see the Math Drop-back Policy for more information.

**Proctor Information**

The Mathematics and Statistics Division at Bluegrass Community and Technical College requires that students take proctored midterm or final exams. A proctor is a person, approved by the course instructor, who verifies the identification of students and serves as a monitor while the student takes the exam.

**To schedule your proctored exam,** please visit the BCTC Testing Center.
