Dropping a Course

This is an archived copy of the 2016-2017 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, a student must either submit a signed Add/Drop form to the Registrar's Office or submit a drop request online utilizing the Online Drop Request .  After the census date, the Add/Drop form must include the instructor signature prior to being submitted to the Registrar. The online request will automatically be routed to the instructor for approval before it will be processed.

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.

Refer to the academic calendar for drop deadlines.

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.
