After receiving a registration PIN from their advisors, students can generally manage their enrollment through MyInfo and CatCourse Scheduler (for more information, please visit the Registration Information website). Sometimes students need instructor approval to add a class. Instructors can authorize an override of a pre-requisite, course cap or time conflict. They may also authorize a student to add their course between the 6th and 10th day of a typical semester. To drop a class from the 11th through the 59th day of the typical semester, students need to consult an advisor. Details on these processes can be found below. Please note add/drops take 3-5 business days to process once the DocuSign form has all required signatures.

If you are faculty/staff looking for instructions on how to add or drop a student, please see Add/Drop Instructions for Instructors & Advisors.

How to Drop a Class

    • If you are within the timeframe to drop yourself from a course, follow the directions on how to self drop a course.

    • Start with your assigned academic advisor, unless your department has shared a different process with you.
    • Students must receive advisor approval. It is important that you reach out to them well in advance of the deadline to ensure you have time to complete the withdraw before the deadline.
    • If you have recently changed majors or are unable to connect with your advisor, click the button below.  
      • Graduate students should reach out to their home department to confirm their advisor.
    • If dropping to zero credits, fill out the university withdrawal request form online.
