Course Changes

• Graduate students may add or register for classes through day 15 of classes.

• Through day 5 of classes, Graduate students may drop classes without incurring a tuition liability and without a W (withdrawal) being recorded.

• From days 6 to 10, students may be able to drop classes with an approved petition from the Graduate School between days 6 to 10 of classes without incurring a tuition liability and without a W (withdrawal) being recorded.

• From days 11 to 15, graduate students may only drop from courses if an even number of credits are added in a single transaction (i.e., a swap of 12 credits for 12 credits), or they may withdraw from a class. When a student withdraws from a class, a W is posted and tuition is charged based on the Tuition Liability schedule. This information is available on the Registrar’s Web site. For swaps between these dates, Graduate students must petition to the Graduate School. Students can swap only if they petition to the Graduate School using the appropriate forms; swaps cannot be done on SOLAR.

• Retroactive add/drop petitions must have the approval of the graduate program director and the Graduate School and will not be processed by the Registrar’s Office until the $20 processing fee is paid.
