Adding & Dropping Classes

Once a student has registered for one or more classes, changes to that schedule (additions and deletions) may be made using Webster, the online registration system, until the deadlines specified below.

Students may drop any class by the deadlines listed in the table below. Each term has two drop deadlines. The first is the deadline to drop without a "W" on the transcript and the second is the deadline to drop with a "W" on the transcript. Classes dropped by the first deadline will not be part of the permanent record. Classes dropped by the second deadline will be recorded on the permanent record with the indication of “W” (withdrawn) together with the date. After these deadlines, the dean of the college in the student’s major field may, in cases of extreme hardship, authorize a student to withdraw from one or more, or all, courses. This action will be recorded on the student’s permanent record with the grade of “W” along with the withdrawal date. Please contact the Controller’s Office regarding any financial adjustments.

Students may add a class until the deadlines listed in the table below. The first is the deadline to add on Webster without special permission. The second is the deadline to add a class with special permission. To add with special permission, an undergraduate student must obtain a Late Add Request form and approval signatures from the academic advisor, the instructor of the class, the chair of the department offering the class, and the dean of the college. [The dean of the college of the student's major, if first-time registration or re-registration (e.g. due to nonpayment). The dean of the college of the course, if adding a course to current schedule.]

A graduate student must obtain a Late Add Request form and the signatures of the graduate coordinator (or, for business only, the associate dean of the college), the instructor of the added class, the department chair for the added class, and the dean of the Graduate School.
