Course Drops

Remove one or more courses from a schedule but remained enrolled in at least one credit.

Course Drops during the First Two Weeks1 (Semester-long courses at UW-Green Bay)

Enrolled students are able to drop individual regular 14-week semester-long courses during the first two weeks of the fall/spring semester with no academic grade assigned or financial penalty2. Students in courses that are less than 14 weeks in duration can drop the course with no grade assigned, during the 1st week.

Late Drop (Semester-long courses at UW-Green Bay)

  • Week 3 to week 6: Students can drop classes on their own and a DR (drop grade) will appear on the transcript.
  • Week 7 to the end of the term: Drops are not allowed. Students must submit a Late Drop Petition which must be approved by the Enrollment Review Committee.  Petitions are only approved for extenuating circumstances with supporting documentation. If a late drop is granted, students remain responsible for the tuition and fees assessed for the course as they received instruction and held a seat in the course. A DR (drop grade) will appear on the transcript.

Late Drop (Courses less than 14 weeks in duration)

•           From the start of week two until half the course duration (50%), a student may drop the course, and a DR (drop grade) will appear on the transcript.

•           Following one day after half the course duration, a student must submit a Late Drop Petition which must be approved by the Enrollment Review Committee. Petitions are only approved for extenuating circumstances with supporting documentation. If a late drop is granted, students remain responsible for the tuition and fees assessed for the course as they received instruction and held a seat in the course.

Financial adjustments for course drops vary based on the effect on course load and timing of the drop. Consult the Bursar fee information for these dates.
