Adding a Class and Changing a Section/Time
Today, Friday, August 31 is the last day to add a course to your schedule for the Fall 2012 semester. Changing the time, professor or section of your course is also considered adding a class, so today is the last day to do those things as well. The CAS Academic Advising Center is only open until 4:30pm so you must make the change to your schedule before then. You may call the advising center, email an advisor or stop by to add a course.
Dropping a Course After the Add PeriodOccasionally, it becomes necessary to drop a course after the add period. Maybe, despite your best efforts and intentions, you feel unable to do well in a course. Maybe you have changed your intended major and no longer feel it is desirable to continue in a certain class. There are some important considerations when deciding to drop!
How do I drop a class?If you wish to drop a class you must first visit the CAS Advising Center. You'll meet with an advisor and complete a drop form. After that, you must meet with your professor to get him/her to sign your drop form. Then you must return the form to the CAS Advising Center.
When can I drop?There are two important dates to keep in mind when considering a drop:
- Wednesday, September 26--This is the last day to drop a course with NO GRADE. The course will not appear on your transcript if you drop by this date.
- Friday, November 9--This is the last day to drop a course. If you drop a course at any point between September 26 and this day, you will receive a "W" on your transcript. While a "W" does not provide an indication of academic performance and is not included in your GPA, it will forever be part of your academic record.
