The instructor of the class as well as the academic unit in which the course is offered may specify a different deadline. As deadlines can differ in each of your courses, read the course syllabus carefully and make sure you understand the policies outlined.

An exception to the above policies may only be requested for extenuating and documented circumstances outside the student's control. Requests will not be considered if submitted for any of the following reasons:

  • The student did not know the deadlines, or did not understand the Add/Drop process
  • The course is not required to meet Major, School, or University requirements
  • The student did not meet the proper prerequisites for the course
  • The student is receiving a poor grade because of difficulties with the course material or is under a heavy course/work load
