Drop a class
Check the registration dates and deadlines for information about refunds, when permission is needed, and if a “W” will appear on your transcript. If no approvals are required and you are confident that making the change is necessary, you may drop your class through MyU: Academics (see step-by-step instructions).
If you would like to replace a class with another, swapping classes may be more appropriate.
Effect on financial aid
Undergraduates must maintain a minimum current registration of 6 credits (half-time status) to qualify for federal loans. Some federal, state, and University financial aid programs require full-time status. The effect on your financial aid will depend on when you withdraw and the type of aid you receive. You may be required to return all or a portion of financial aid disbursed to you.
Alternate option to withdrawing
As an alternate option, if you have already completed a substantial portion of the work for a class, you may work with your instructor to get an "I" (incomplete) in a course and complete the work at a later date. More information on this option.
