Dropping Courses

Page address:

Adding/Dropping a Course(s)

You may add or drop a full-term course(s) via E-Services (View/Modify) through the fifth day of the semester. Dropping a course by the deadline means the course is removed from your class schedule, you are not financially responsible, and the course does not appear on your transcript.

Withdrawing from Course(s)

You may “withdraw” from full-session course(s) via E-Services (View/Modify) through the published date for the semester. Withdrawing from a course(s) means that you are no longer in the course but the course counts as “attempted” and a grade of “W” is given. You are still financially responsible for the course(s).

Official Withdrawal

You may officially withdraw from all courses through the published date. An official withdrawal is defined as terminating enrollment in all registered courses for an academic semester. More information regarding financial and academic implications.

NOTE: You can also see the drop/withdrawal dates by looking at the course details when searching for a course. The dates can also be seen by placing your mouse over the icon on your schedule. This will display "hover help" and the official date to drop and withdraw. You can also see these important dates on your printed class schedule.
