OP here. I know that screenshots aren't very good evidence, but it was basically all I had (since the website had been updated since). I'm on a quarter system so there's not enough time to go with a lot of your ideas, though I appreciate you guys trying. Oh, and I did go to my parents. Not for help, since I did everything possible before I called them about it, but they didn't believe me either. （´・ω・｀） Shit just sucks sometimes.

That's terrible OP! I hope you manage to drop your class... I know from experience, taking a class you don't enjoy is a drag and it could mean you don't do well in it...
My college did a very similar thing, they said I could change subjects before the end of November, I kept asking in October and they said "we've paid for your January exams now you can't change until after the exams" so I continued asking and it turned into "you've done the exams now you can't change subject until next year and you'd have to redo the year". I ended up not going to the lessons for the two subjects I wanted to change and then just dropped out of college and got a job instead. (college as in ages 16-18 after school).
Annoyingly, sometimes getting parents involved is the only way to fix the problem. I've recently been fighting an issue with my financial aid. I've gone down multiple times trying to get an answer and was blown off or sent in circles every time. In desperation, I called my dad. Just today he came down and went with me to the offices I needed to talk to. I still did all the talking and approached them in the exact same way I have been for weeks, but just by having him standing there was able to get answers in under half an hour. And this type of thing isn't uncommon for me. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that even though I'm a 25 year old senior, I look like a teenager and that makes me very easy to brush off.
