Enrollees are responsible for any course fees if the course is not dropped by the listed deadline for each course.

  • All post-deadline drops will be assessed a $50.00 late drop fee. Please see specific course information, as numerous earlier deadlines exist.

Refunds: No refunds will be transacted after the course drop deadline.

Non-attendance does not constitute a drop or exclusion from course fees and penalties.

Changes: Students are normally not permitted to transact changes after Friday, September 10, 2021 for the fall semester and Friday, February 4, 2022 for the spring semester.. However, changes may be transacted for legitimate documentable problems and conflicts. A $50.00 fee will be assessed.

Withdrawal

If a student withdraws after the published Physical Education course deadline, the student is responsible for the course fee and a late drop fee. If the student withdraws from the course prior to the published University Course Drop Deadline, the course will not appear on the student's transcript. If the student withdraws from the course after the published University Course Drop Deadline, a W will appear on the student's transcript.

If a student wishes to withdraw from a course to avoid a failing grade, they must do so before the last scheduled class of the course.  Once a course is completed for the semester, no further drops or withdrawals are permitted.
