Withdrawal/Resignation (Drop Classes)

The Schedule Adjustment Period (Drop/Add) is the allowable period for you to self-manage your scheduled courses via the registration portal. In a regular semester (spring or fall), drop/add ends on the fifth (5th) day of classes; in a summer session or part of term course, this period ends on the third (3rd) day of classes. Specific dates for each semester can be found in the appropriate Academic Calendar. Following drop/add, a student must formally make schedule adjustments with academic consultation.

Withdrawal - Dropping one specific class or multiple classes; but not all, from your schedule. You will continue to remain enrolled for the semester since you still have some classes registered. The withdrawn class(es) will receive a grade of "W," and you remain financially responsible for the tuition and fees for the associated class(es).

Resign (Drop all classes) - Withdrawing from all classes in a specific semester. All classes will receive a grade of "W." Please review the Credit Adjustment Policy in regard to the timeframe for refunds.
