ADD, DROP & WITHDRAW
There are important deadlines to add, drop, and withdraw from a class each semester. View the course schedule to see add/drop/withdraw dates for a specific class.
Add a Course
You can add courses to your schedule through eServices.
- For semester-based courses, you can add through the fifth business day of the term.
- For accelerated courses, you can add within two business days of the start of the course.
Refer to the course description in the current course schedule to find the add deadline for your course.
Drop vs. Withdraw
Dropping a course versus withdrawing from a course are two different things.
- Dropping a course means removing yourself from a course before or during the DROP/ADD period.
- Withdrawing from a course means removing yourself from a course after the DROP/ADD period and before the withdraw deadline.
If you stop attending a course, it’s important that you go through the process to drop or withdraw from that course otherwise you will remain financially responsible. If you are receiving financial aid and make changes to your credit load, you should contact the Financial Aid Office to determine if the change will affect your aid status.
The process to drop/withdraw from a course is available in eServices. Login with your StarID and password, and under “Courses & Registration” choose “View/Modify Schedule”.
