Adding, Dropping, and Resigning Courses
The following deadlines apply to classes offered during the standard 15 week session in fall and spring. Courses offered in shorter, longer, and non-standard sessions will have drop, add and resign deadlines established based on the appropriate portion of class days and may differ from those for the standard 15 week session.
- Students may register for courses and make changes to their class schedule at any time between the start of their enrollment appointment through the end of the 7th day of classes. Courses dropped during this period will not appear on the students’ transcripts. Students may register for courses through the end of the 7th day of classes. (Calculation of the 7th day of classes includes Saturdays, but does not include Sundays and holidays.)
- For information about withdrawing from courses after the 7th day of classes, see Resignation from Coursework at the University.
- Students who choose to resign from all courses after the 7th day of classes will be responsible for a financial penalty and receive a grade of “R” for each course resigned until the end of the resignation period. When resigning from a course, students should determine if the course is impacted. Impacted courses cannot be repeated during the fall or spring semesters. (See Priority Registration for Students Attempting a Course for the First Time.)
- Students can resign from courses until the end of the eleventh week of classes.
For sessions that are shorter than the regular 15 week session, drop, add, and resign dates are calculated based on the appropriate percentage of class days.
Students are not permitted to sit in a class without proper registration. Students who are officially auditing a class cannot have the audit grade option converted to a letter grade option retroactively nor are students permitted to register for a class after the end of the 7th day of classes.
Drop, add, and resign dates are available in students’ HUB Student Center (via MyUB).
