Late Drop & Add

Students may drop and add courses via web registration through the 5th class day of a fall or spring semester, or through the 4th class day of a summer term. After the open drop/add period, students must obtain approval from their academic dean to drop or add courses. Students who need to drop or add a course after the open drop/add period should contact their academic dean's office for information on how to submit their request. In most cases students who need to drop a class will need to complete a Q-Drop Request form, which is then processed in the academic dean's office or in the student's major department. Other types of drop requests and all requests to add a course must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar for processing.

Student-Athletes (including practice players, managers, and trainers) MUST receive approval from Athletic Compliance before dropping below 12 hours in a fall or spring semester.


Students should be aware that penalty fees will be assessed for registering after the first day of class. Additional penalties will be assessed for registering or adding courses after the official census date for the term (12th class day of a fall or spring semester, 4th class day of a summer term).
