Consider searching for second eight-week classes and other classes that have not yet started. Instructors may not approve your add request if you’ve missed too much of the semester.
You’ll get a “W” (withdrawn) on your transcript for any class you drop. Note that if your instructor gives you an F because you were found to have committed an act of academic misconduct, you’ll still get that F rather than an automatic W even if you withdraw before the automatic W deadline. Withdrawing from a class doesn’t protect you from the consequences of academic misconduct.
If you want to drop all your classes, you’ll need to withdraw from the university.
After the automatic W deadline, you’ll no longer be able to drop or add classes via eDrop/eAdd. Check with your advisor to find out about your school or department’s rules and policies.
To drop after the automatic W deadline, you must begin the process by requesting drop/add form signed by your school’s dean. Please Note: Some schools require a petition before allowing the late drop. Once you have the form, it needs to be signed by your instructor and the chair of the department offering the class you wish to drop. Bring the signed form to a service representative at Student Central to process your drop or add. Don’t try to use the online registration system.
It will be up to your instructor to give you either a W or an F if you drop a class after the automatic W deadline. If you’re worried about your GPA, talk with your instructor to see if there are better options available.Learn about your grades
Approval to drop a class after the last day to drop a course is normally given only for urgent reasons, such as a long illness or similar issue. Talk to your instructors and your advisor as soon as possible if something happens in your life that could keep you from successfully completing your courses late in the term. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
