Academic Deadlines

Add/Drop Period - FALL by September 12, 2017 (Tuesday) / SPRING by January 29, 2018 (Monday)

After your initial registration, you may add (register for) one or more additional courses, or drop (cancel your registration for) any course for which you have registered. You should not drop required courses, such as a First-Year or Intermediate Seminar or a QR course, without consulting your advisor.

You may add or drop courses during the add-drop period, typically during the first week of classes. Please see the academic calendar for specific times and dates.

Course Pass/Fail Option -  FALL by November 22, 2017 (Wednesday) / SPRING by April 20, 2018 (Friday)

  • You can file for the pass/fail option through WISER at any time after your initial registration until the deadline.
  • If you receive a grade of "F," it will count as a failure and against your cumulative average.
  • If you successfully complete the course, you will earn a grade of "P" and the course will be counted toward your graduation requirements, but it will not affect your cumulative grade point average.
  • Undergraduate students may take one course each semester on a pass/fail basis, up to a maximum of eight. (Mandatory pass/fail courses do not count toward this limit.)
  • You cannot cancel a pass/fail choice after the deadline.

Please note: The requirements of your college, major, or program may not permit you to take certain courses pass/fail. Be sure to check with your college or program BEFORE you select the pass/fail option.


Course Withdrawal Option - FALL by November 22, 2017 (Wednesday) / SPRING by April 20, 2018 (Friday)

Our Withdrawal Policy

  • You may withdraw from any individual course.
  • If you do so you will be given a grade of "W", which will remain on your record but will not affect your cumulative grade point average.
  • You may register for the same course in another semester.
  • You cannot withdraw from a course after the deadline.
  • There are no refunds for course withdrawals.

If you do not attend classes, you will not be withdrawn automatically. Unless your instructor takes attendance and submits a grade of “NA” to the Registrar’s Office, you will receive a grade of “F” for the course.
