During the first week of classes in the fall and winter semesters, students may add full-semester classes through the fourth day, provided seats are still available. Full-semester classes may be dropped through 5 p.m. of the ninth calendar day of the semester; no grade will be recorded on a student’s transcript for courses dropped during this period. The add/drop period varies for classes meeting less than the full semester and during the summer session, depending on the length of the course. See “Tuition and Fees” section of this bulletin for refund information for fall and winter semesters. Refer to the summer schedule for specific add/drop information.

Dropping a Class After the Add/Drop Period

Students dropping a full-semester class after the official add/drop period through the 15th week (i.e., the Friday before the start of the examination period) in the fall and winter semesters will be issued a “W” grade. Dates for withdrawing from a course not meeting for a full semester or for summer session courses will be prorated. These dates are published by the Registrar’s Office at the beginning of each registration period. With documentation of the extenuating circumstances preventing a student from meeting the withdrawal deadline, exceptions to this policy may be made with the written approval of the Dean of Students Office. See Tuition and Fees section of this bulletin for refund information.
