Adding or Dropping a Course on Student Planning after the Course Registration Deadline

The course registration deadline was Friday, September 16.  At this stage, if you still need to drop or, in rare cases, add or change a class, you'll need to use actual paper forms that require handwritten signatures.  

Here's what to do in some common situations:
  • To add a discussion section or a PE class:  Pick up an Add form at the Registrar's Office, have it signed, and submit it to the Registrar's Office.  (There is no late fee.)
  • To add a full academic course, you must petition to the Committee on Programs and Academic Standing.  Meet with your class dean ASAP to learn more about the petition process.  (If your request is granted, there is a late fee.)
  • To drop a course: Pick up a Drop form at the Registrar's Office, have it signed (usually by your adviser), and submit it to the Registrar's Office.  The course will be completely removed from your record, but there are no tuition refunds at this point in the semester. The drop deadline is Tuesday, October 11, 4:30 pm.  
  • To change sections of a course: Pick up a section-change form at the Registrar's Office, have it signed, and submit it to the Registrar's Office.
  • To withdraw from a course after October 11 and on or before the Withdrawal Deadline of November 17 Pick up a Withdrawal form at the Registrar's Office, have it signed (usually by your adviser), and submit it to the Registrar's Office.  The course will remain on your transcript, with a "W" where a grade would otherwise be -- you won't earn credit for it, and it won't enter into your GPA.  The withdrawal deadline is Thursday, November 17, 4:30 p.m.
  • To elect the Pass/D/Fail Option:  You will ultimately be able to do this online through Student Planning, but this is not yet available.  Stay tuned for further information.  The Pass/D/Fail deadline is also Thursday, November 17.
Please note:

All students are required to be enrolled in a minimum of 12 credits.  You will not be permitted to drop or withdraw from a course that causes you to fall below this minimum.
