UM-Dearborn Connect Registration and Records

Dropping Courses

A student who wishes to drop all courses should refer to instructions for "Withdrawing from Term".

Unofficial Drop

Students deciding not to attend their elected courses are NOT automatically withdrawn or dropped from these courses, and remain liable for all tuition, fees, and penalties. Students must follow the proper drop procedures of the University.

Dropping a Course with no Penalty

Students may drop courses via Web or Walk-in registration during the first two weeks of a full term, or the first week of a half term or mini-term.

Web

Students may use the Web to drop during the first two weeks of a full term, or the first week of a half term or mini-term. Web is available from 6:00 a.m. to 11:45 p.m.

Walk-in

Forms for the purpose of dropping a course may be picked up from the school or college in which the student is enrolled, the Enrollment Services counter or the "Registration and Records Forms" section. Completed forms must be returned to the Enrollment Services counter for processing. The effective date of the drop is the date the drop form is received and signed at the Enrollment Services counter. Enrollment Services is open during drop/add Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. and Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. The deadline to drop courses with no academic or financial penalty is available on the "Academic Calendar".

Dropping a Course with Penalty

 

Walk-in Only

After the first two weeks of a full term, or the first week of a half term or mini-term, there is no reduction in fee assessments for dropped courses. In addition a "W" will be recorded on the academic record for course(s) dropped after this deadline.

The deadline to drop courses with academic and financial penalty is available on the "Academic Calendar". Any exceptions for dropping courses after this date must be approved by petition to the school or college in which the student is enrolled.

Dropping for Less than One-Month Mini Courses

A student may drop from a less than one-month mini-course on or before the first class meeting of such a course without financial penalty. Thereafter, full tuition will be assessed and academic record will reflect the symbol for withdrawal ("W").
