Dropping a Course

This is an archived copy of the 2014-2015 catalog. To access the most recent version of the catalog, please visit http://catalog.twu.edu.

A student can drop a course online through WebAdvisor until the end of Late Registration for the term.  Once Late Registration is over and before the term's census date, the student must submit a signed Add/Drop form to the Registrar's Office .  After the census date, the Add/Drop form must include the instructor signature prior to being submitted to the Registrar.

Course drops processed during the first six weeks of a long term will receive an automatic "W" grade, which is a non-punitive grade.  After the first six weeks, the instructor will recommend either a grade of W or a grade of WF on the drop form.  Failure to submit a completed and signed drop form by the published deadline will cause the student to receive an F.

Students wishing to drop all classes and withdraw from the University must initiate a formal withdrawal through the Student Life Office .

There is an Add/Drop fee assessed for each drop processed after the term starts, excluding withdrawals.
