Withdrawal Deadlines

Absence from class or non-payment does not constitute an official withdrawal or dropped course. If your plans change and you are unable to attend a course for which you have registered, you must officially drop/withdraw from the class. Failure to do so within the add/drop deadlines for that course will result in your being held responsible for all tuition and fees associated with the course(s) in question.

Students can drop/withdraw from summer courses on the Student Link until the add/drop deadline. Add/Drop deadlines for Summer 2019 will be available on December 15.

Please Note: If you are a visiting international student attending Summer Term on a Boston University Summer I-20, you must maintain full-time enrollment in the summer. If you have any questions, please conact sumintl@bu.edu.
