If the student drops a course before the last day to add or drop a course (see the Academic Calendar), the course is not recorded on the student’s record. A grade of W is given to a student who withdraws from a course after the last day to add or drop a course, but before the last day to withdraw without a grade. If a student drops a course after the last day to withdraw from a course without a grade, the student will receive a grade of WF for that course. WF grades negatively affect the GPA. The instructor may request a grade of WP, which will not affect the GPA.
Course Add/Drop: Students may add or drop courses online via INSITE or in person within the registration deadlines (see academic calendar). To add or drop a course in person, by mail or by fax, use and ADD/DROP form.
Students may add courses until the Add/Drop deadline (see Academic Calendar). Students who drop courses on or before the Add/Drop deadline will be removed from class rosters, and the course will not appear on their transcripts. If a student drops a course after the Add/Drop deadline, this will be treated as a withdrawal and a “W” will appear on the student’s transcript for that course.
Course Withdrawal: Unless allowed by individual instructor’s syllabus attendance policy, students will not be automatically withdrawn from a course simply due to their attendance. The student must formally withdraw from a course she/he no longer wishes to attend. Course withdrawal forms are available online or in the Registrar’s office.
Any course changes may result in an adjustment of one’s billing and/or affect one’s financial aid, housing eligibility, and/or athletic eligibility.
