You can request for a class change before the term deadline, which means the transfer of your start date to a different term. Your current progress will be carried over to your new term, you will have access to the course and material on that date. Note that your course will resume on the date that you choose.
If you are eligible for a class change, it is strictly a one-time exception.
For evaluation of your eligibility for a class change, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org with the term and requested class date.
