Late-Drop Policy

The Late-Drop Policy is in place to protect the academic process. In order to drop a class after the established deadline, you must have clearly extenuating circumstances that prohibit you from completing a course.

Extenuating circumstances may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Car accident
  • Sudden injury or illness (Doctor’s office/hospital documented)
  • Birth of a child
  • Death of a family member
  • Conditions of close friends (suicide, accident/injury)
  • Divorce (individual or parent)

Non-Extenuating Circumstances

Non-extenuating circumstances include the following:

  • You forgot to drop the course, or you were not aware of the course-drop policy.
  • You spent too much time on University extracurricular activities.
  • You wish to avoid a poor grade.
  • You are changing your major or transferring to another school.
  • You don’t need the course to graduate.
