Course Drops

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

Students may drop one or more courses after the start of a term or session based upon the deadlines noted below.  Please see the Bursar’s Office website for information regarding drop fees and refunds.

Regular 14-week semester long courses or longer:

  • Courses dropped within the first 2 weeks of the session will not receive an academic grade. 
  • Courses dropped within the third through eighth weeks of the session will receive an academic grade of ‘W’.

Sessions less than 14 weeks:

  • Courses dropped within the first week of the session will not receive an academic grade. 
  • Courses dropped within the second week through the first half (50%) of the session will receive an academic grade of ‘W’.

After the Drop Deadline has passed, a student may submit a Late Drop Petition for review 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.  Courses dropped through the Late Drop Petition will receive an academic grade of ‘W’.

  • Regular 14-week semester long courses or longer: The Late Drop Petition is required within the ninth week through the last day of classes.
  • Sessions less than 14 weeks: The Late Drop Petition is required during the second half (50%) of the session.
