Drops and Withdrawals

Students who need to drop a course should do so online using HomerConnect, the student information system, during the add/drop period. Students wishing to withdraw must obtain a withdrawal form from the registrar's office and submit it to the Registrar's Office with required approvals by the deadline. Extramural students should submit the withdrawal form to OES. Add/drop and withdrawal deadlines can be found on the winter session academic calendar. No refund is given for a withdrawal.

Note: Cessation of class attendance or notification of the instructor is not considered an official drop or withdrawal. Unless students officially drop or withdraw from a course, they are still registered for the course, and will receive a grade of F even though they did not attend class. It is the student's responsibility to add, drop, or withdraw from a course.
