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.




Dropping a Course vs. Withdrawing

  • A dropped course is removed from your schedule and does not appear on your academic transcript.
  • If you drop a class by the deadline, the class will be removed from your schedule and you are not responsible for the tuition and fees associated with the class.
  • If you do not drop a class by the drop deadline posted in the Academic Calendar, you will withdraw from the class.

A withdrawn course will appear on your transcript with a grade of W – it indicates the course was withdrawn after the drop period.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.
