Courses may be added or dropped without penalty during the first few days of a term using Banner Self-Service in the WConnect portal.

Students should check the academic calendar, student handbook, and/or student activities calendar for all important dates concerning adding or dropping a course, or changing their grade status for a course. After the penalty free period, students will need to consult with their advisors for drop/add, and grade status procedures.

The add/drop transaction is not final until the changes have been processed by the Registrar’s Office.

Withdrawing by the last day to withdraw without receiving a grade results in a grade of W on the student record, which does not calculate in the student’s GPA. Withdrawing after this date, but by the last day to completely withdraw from the university, results in a grade of WP or WF. WP grades do not affect GPA, but WF grades do calculate into the GPA, the same as a grade of F. The withdrawal dates and deadlines are published in the Academic Calendar.
