How do I drop or withdraw from a course?

Before the registration deadline, you can drop or swap your classes in Bear Tracks. In some cases, you may be required to complete an Add/Delete form and/or consult with the faculty.  For more information on how to swap or drop classes in Bear Tracks, please visit Changing Your Registration.

After the registration deadline, you cannot drop or swap courses; you can only withdraw. (Note that there is also a withdrawal deadline.) To withdraw from a course, contact your faculty advising office to submit a course withdrawal request. If you are in Open Studies, please visit the Open Studies page for more information on withdrawing from a course. Consent for any withdrawal request may be required from the department, program advisor, and/or faculty. For more information, see Withdrawals or consult with your faculty.
