Drop & add classes

Want to change your schedule? Read this first.

Before you drop or add a class, make sure you understand the rules. Your timing makes all the difference when it comes to whether or not you’re hit with extra fees or a bad grade. 

Dropping or adding classes can affect your financial aid, scholarship status, or tuition cost. If you do decide to drop or add a class, be sure to talk with your academic advisor. If you’re worried about what will happen with your finances, contact the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships.

You are responsible for taking the appropriate steps outlined on this page to officially add or drop a class. Failure to do so may cause you to get an F in a course you didn’t attend—or not get credit for a course you did attend. Keep in mind that not attending a class or not paying for a class will not result in you being automatically dropped.

Ready to get started?

The first week is your chance to figure out if the classes you chose are right for you. If you need to make a change, make all necessary adjustments before the Monday of the second week if possible to get a 100% refund* and the course will not appear on your transcript.

Tip: If you're replacing one course with another (with the same # of credit hours), be sure to drop and add them at the same time—ideally, on the same day—to keep your tuition from changing.

Drop or add classes in the first week

* Courses that are less than 5 weeks in duration have earlier refund deadlines.
