When you drop a class, it must be done online by the drop deadline published in the Academic Calendar for that term.
There are different drop deadlines for summer term – each session has specific deadlines which are posted in the Academic Calendar.
A withdrawn course will appear on your transcript with a grade of W – it indicates the course was withdrawn after the drop period. The W grade does not affect your GPA.
For information regarding withdrawing, which is after the drop deadline, please visit the Withdrawing: Classes or Terms page.
