Academic Deadlines

Dropping Courses

Friday, November 17 is the last day for graduate students to drop ALL Fall semester courses from their Fall registration without a grade of W and thus withdraw from Fall semester. Students need to complete a Withdrawal/Cancellation form and obtain their department’s signature and, in the case of International Students, a signature from International Student Scholar Services. Students considering this action are encouraged first to discuss their decision with their adviser and/or program.

Friday, November 17 is the last day to drop individual full term Fall semester courses without a grade of W. Students need to submit a Late Course Change form to the Graduate College to complete the process, but first are encouraged to discuss their decision with their adviser and/or program. Dropping a course may affect progress toward degree completion, so the decision is best done in consultation with a student’s program.

Credit/ No Credit

Friday, November 17 is the last day to change a course to the credit/no-credit grading option for a Fall semester course or to change from the credit/no-credit grading option to a regular grade. Adviser approval is required. Please consult with your program if you are considering this grading option for any course because course and department restrictions may apply.
