After The Add/Drop Period

*Once the Add/Drop period has ended, classes, fieldwork, and IMPs cannot be dropped or added.

Students can request a grade of Withdrawal (WD) from a course or fieldwork by the midpoint of the term (see below).

There is no dropping of IMPs once the Add/Drop period has ended. Students who have not dropped and do not participate will receive a GPA neutral grade of NT (Never Attended) and will be required to re-register and pay for another IMP in a future semester.

*The only exception is for 1 credit courses that have not met for the first time. If a class has not met, students can still add or drop the course outside of the usual Add/Drop window, as long as they do so before the first class meeting. After the class has met once, registration for the class is closed; students who cannot attend the class will need to withdraw.

Withdrawing From a Course

Students can request a grade of Withdrawal (WD) from a course by the midpoint of the term. The course will remain on the student's record with a GPA neutral grade of Withdrawan (WD). Students must come to the Registrar's Office to fill out the Request For Grade of Withdrawan (WD) Form by the set deadline.  Please see the following link(s) for a possible refund.
