Changing Your Course Schedule

Making changes to your course schedule after you’ve registered or started your courses for each term can be confusing. We’ve made some important changes to our policies to serve you better. How and when can you remove a course from your schedule and how much money you get back depends on how far into the course (or term) you are.

Add or Switch

You can add a course to your schedule or SWITCH a course section anytime prior to the start date of a course, and in some cases up to one week after the course start date. See below for specific dates per term/block.


Full Refund—No Academic Record

You may drop a course up to a certain date for a full refund without the course ever appearing on your transcript. After the drop deadline, you must officially withdraw from a class to avoid a failing grade. See below for specific dates per term/block.


No GPA Penalty (before withdrawal deadline)

After the drop deadline, you must withdraw from a course before the withdrawal deadline (see below) to avoid receiving a grade of FA  (equivalent to an F in your GPA). An official course withdrawal appears on your transcript as a grade W, which does not factor into your GPA.
