You can drop a course before the regular drop deadline or the late drop deadline, with certain requirements and restrictions. Note that if you plan to drop your only course or all your courses for a semester, you will need to withdraw from the semester.
Before you decide whether to drop a course, it is important to work with your academic adviser to understand the impacts and how changing your schedule will fit into your academic plan. Contact your adviser before making any registration changes.
Course Drop Deadlines
There are two course drop deadlines each semester: the regular drop deadline and the late drop deadline.
Important Financial Considerations
Changing your overall number of credits after your course begins can have financial implications. Your individual financial implications may depend on several factors.
