LATE DROP Deadline Reminder

Hopefully you do not need this information!  But, if you are concerned about a course and have thought about dropping it, it is important to remember that the Late Drop Deadline is this Friday, November 9th at 11:59 PM. 

If you do not drop a class you are doing poorly in by this time, it will remain on your schedule and you will receive a grade in the class.  The deadline is fixed. There are no exceptions.  The Withdrawal deadline is Friday, December 5 at 5:00 PM (eastern time).  This will eliminate your entire schedule.  You can’t partially withdraw.

Please meet with your adviser and the instructor of any class in which you are struggling.  Students are limited to 3 attempts to complete a class.   We are here to help.
