Adding or Dropping a Course

University Policy

College of Engineering Policy

Undergraduate

To add or drop a course, students must complete a course adjustment form, available in the Undergraduate Records Office, or use the WebReg system. Students should consult with their advisors before adding or dropping a course.

A course may be added only during the first two weeks of classes. A module section change in a course such as ENG EK 131/132 may only occur during the first week of instruction.

A course dropped during the first five weeks of classes will not appear on the student’s permanent record. After the first five weeks, a dropped course will appear on the student’s record as a W (Withdrawal).

Courses may be dropped up to the deadline posted on the Registrar’s Office website, typically mid-semester. After that point, no course may be dropped.

Graduate

To add or drop a course, eligible students may use WebReg on the Student Link or complete an Add/Drop Form, available from their department/division office, the Graduate Programs Office, or at the University Registrar website. Students should consult with their advisors before adding or dropping a course.

A standard course dropped during the first five weeks of classes will not appear on the student’s permanent record. A standard course dropped after the first five weeks of classes will appear on the student’s record as W, and the student will be charged for the course.

Standard courses may be dropped up to the end of the 10th week of classes. After that point, no course may be dropped. See the important dates on the University Registrar website.
