Dropping Courses

You are responsible for dropping any or all courses you do not wish to attend, including waitlisted courses. If you drop a class, you must do so before the deadline to receive a refund or to remove the fees from your bill. Students are not automatically dropped from a class for failure to attend (English N1A is the only exception).
