Drop/Add

Students are able to add and drop courses during the first week of the term. For information regarding deadlines and necessary approvals, see the Campus Handbook: Drop/Add policy.

The specific deadlines can be found on the Academic Calendar website.

Change of Section 

If a student wants to change from one course section to another and as long as both course sections have the same number and title, same number of credits and same beginning and ending week, the student may utilize the Swap function within Workday. See our guide Swap a Course (aka Add/Drop) for more information.  For more information on changing sections, deadlines and approvals see the Campus Handbook: Change of Section policy.

Change of Level

If a student wants to change from a more or less advanced course in a language course, mathematics, and certain physical education courses, the student may utilize the Swap function with Workday. See our guide Swap a Course (aka Add/Drop) for more information. For more information on changing levels, courses, deadlines, and approvals, see the Campus Handbook: Change of Level policy.

‘Late’ Drop or Withdrawal

Provided the 12 credit minimum is observed, courses may be late dropped. See the Campus Handbook: Add/Drop policy for more information on deadlines and approvals. The “late-drop” process in Workday is available for this purpose. See our guide Drop or ‘Late’ Drop from a Class for more information.

While a pattern of frequent use of this option may be interpreted by graduate schools and employers as an indication of inability to complete academic obligations, an occasional “DRP” notation on a transcript is no cause for concern. The Academic Standing Committee (ASC) regards the DRP as a valid elective option for a student in cases where a course cannot be completed for a variety of reasons as well as in cases where students have simply missed the registration deadline. Petitions to remove a DRP notation from the transcript are not usually granted.

Non-attendance Drop

A student may be dropped from a course for non-attendance. See the Campus Handbook: Class Attendance policy and the Campus Handbook: Registration policy for more information.
