Drop Deadlines

The Final Drop Deadline (67% tuition penalty) is just over one week away- Friday, October 2. That is your last opportunity to drop a course and have it removed from your transcript.

The Selective Withdrawal Period will run from October 5 through October 30.  Remember: Undergraduate Degree-Seeking students may request a maximum of three selective withdrawals during their entire undergraduate career.  Use them wisely!  We recommend you meet with an advisor before pursuing this route.

**Important note: drop deadlines differ for courses that start during the second half of the semester. Always verify dates on the Registrar’s website.
