Students may withdraw from a course up to four weeks before the end of a semester. No course withdrawals will be processed during the last four weeks of a semester. The last day to withdraw from a class is published in the academic calendar for each term.

Students may add 14-week courses on a space available basis through the first five days of the semester and may add seven-week courses through the first three days of the seven-week period. Students who believe it is necessary to add a course after these time periods should talk to an advisor in the University Academic Advising Office (UAAO) as soon as possible. Late adds are only approved through an appeal process.
