Last day for undergraduate students to drop below 12 hours.* Last day for ALL students to drop a course without a W grade.*

*Please note: For undergraduate students taking classes in the second 8-week session of the semester, the last day to drop below 12 hours is NOT the same as Census Date. For all students taking classes in the second 8-week session of the semester, the last day to drop a course without a W grade is NOT the same as the Census Date. Please consult the academic calendar.

Drop/Revision Deadline

Drop/Revision Deadline: MyPack Portal closes for student-initiated schedule revisions at 11:59 p.m. All schedule revisions made after this date will require a Schedule Revision form for processing. Last day to change to credit only at ALL levels.

“Last Week of Semester”

“Last Week of Semester”: Lab tests, semester project reports and presentations are permissible during the final week of classes. Papers and homework may have a due date during the final week of classes only if scheduled in the syllabus. However, in order for students to prepare for final examinations, faculty members may not assign other tests, quizzes or additional papers during the final week of classes. Assignments should not have a due date during the final exam period unless the assignment constitutes a part of the final exam. Exceptions to this policy must be approved in advance by the department head and the dean of the college involved. Students should contact the appropriate instructor or department head if they believe an assignment is not in compliance with this regulation.

Term Withdrawal Deadline

Last day to submit a withdrawal request for the term. Any requests after this date are considered retroactive and require the same conditions as a term withdrawal, but must also be initiated by the Counseling Center.
