Once you have initially enrolled (registered), you may make schedule revisions (drop/add) anytime MyPack Portal is operational. You are encouraged to make your schedule changes as soon as you are aware that they need to be made. To insure easy access to MyPack Portal, please make changes as early as possible. Please refer to the Semester Calendar for official schedule revision dates.
Note: Upon adding course work that results in an increased rate, students will be billed during the next Cashier's Office billing cycle. Refunds resulting from courses dropped will be mailed to the students university correspondence address. The last for a tuition adjustment is the same as the last day to register, add without departmental approval, drop or change to audit. Courses dropped after this date are not eligible for a tuition credit or refund. Students who drop all of their courses after the start of the semester (i.e. withdraw) will receive refunds based on the Cashier’s Office withdrawal schedule.
Courses may be added during the first week of a semester without the permission of the instructor and during the second week with the permission of the instructor.
Courses may be dropped without regard to course load during the first two weeks of a semester. Dropping all of the courses for which you are registered after the start of the semester constitutes withdrawing from the university. (See Withdrawal From the University)
Full-Time Undergraduate Degree Students Dropping Courses in the Third through Eighth Weeks
During weeks three through eight of a semester, a full-time undergraduate degree student who wishes to drop courses at any level and whose academic load would thereby fall below the twelve-hour minimum course load may do so only for documented medical reasons or other verified, unforeseen grounds of personal or family hardship as provided for under Exceptions. The minimum course load for undergraduate students is twelve credit hours except in their final semester when a lesser number may be taken if that is all that the student needs to fulfill graduation requirements.To receive financial aid, a student must meet the minimum course load requirements of the appropriate funding agency.
Deadline for Dropping Courses
Except as provided in the paragraph above, courses may be freely dropped during the first eight weeks of a semester and during the first eleven days of a summer session. Thereafter, no drops shall be allowed except for documented medical reasons or other verified, unforeseen grounds of personal or family hardship as provided for under Exceptions.
Note: For mini-courses normally offered for one credit during one-third of a semester, the drop period shall end at the middle of the second week of that particular course, regardless of whether it is offered at the beginning, middle, or end of a regular semester. The drop date for a five-week mini-course is the last day of the third week of the mini-course. The drop date for a seven-week mini-course is the last day of the fourth week of the mini-course.
For undergraduate students exceptions to the drop policies above require the recommendation of the student's advisor (or the departmental coordinator of advising or the department head) and approval by the dean of the student's college. Students and advisors should check with the college dean's office concerning forms and procedures for requesting an exception.
For graduate students exceptions to the drop policies require the recommendation of the chair of the student's advisory committee, the department head, approval by the dean of the students' college, and the dean of the graduate school.
For Non-degree (Lifelong Education) students exceptions to the drop policies must be handled in person at 1000 Harris Hall.
