Adding and Dropping Courses

Students wishing to add or drop courses must do so using LORIS before the deadlines listed in the Graduate Calendar (see the Academic and Related Dates section of this Calendar). Dropping all courses in any given term does not constitute withdrawal from the program or the University. See Withdrawal from the University for more information.

Deadlines concerning adding or withdrawing from courses

A course must be added no later than 12 calendar days from the first day of classes. This regulation applies to spring term, fall term, winter term, and full-credit courses taken over the September - April academic year. The final dates for withdrawing from courses (including 6-week courses) without penalty of failure are listed in the Academic and Related Dates section of this calendar. A grade of F will be assigned if a student withdraws after the final date.
