A student may drop courses from his/her schedule through the fifth day of classes during Fall and Spring semesters (for a period of two days after late registration during the Summer semester and for a period of one day after late registration during Maymester). Students may drop via PAWS or by submitting a Course Change Card to the Office of the Registrar for processing. No approval is required on the Course Change Card to drop a course during this time period.
Students attending classes that do not meet until after the published drop/add dates are allowed 24 hours following their first class meeting to adjust their course load. Exact dates for add and drop periods are listed in the Academic Calendar.
After the drop period, but on or before the last day to drop a course without academic penalty (unless previously assigned an ‘F’ by the professor for excessive absences), students may drop courses by submitting the Course Change Card to the Office of the Registrar. Approval of the instructor and faculty advisor are required.
A student, who drops a course after the last day to drop a course without academic penalty (unless previously assigned an "F" by the professor for absences,) will receive a grade of "WF" (Withdrew Failing) for the course.
