Students may make a change in their course schedules (drops and adds). For courses greater than four weeks, this drop-add period is up through the first five business days of the term, or one business day after the first class meeting, whichever is later. For courses four weeks or less in length, students may add or drop courses up through one business day after the first class meeting. Students use eServices to drop or add courses. Students should always meet with their assigned advisor to discuss changes to their course schedule.

Students may withdraw from courses after the fifth class day through the final date for official course withdrawal, which is the date on which eighty percent of the days in the course have elapsed. It is the student’s responsibility to initiate withdrawal from a course, and a student considering withdrawing from a course should connect with their Academic Advisor. Withdrawal dates are posted in the course schedule in eServices.
