The last day to drop a class with a W or change a class to Pass/Fail is Thursday, October 17.  If you have any questions, make an appointment to meet with an advisor now.  To do a W drop, you need the signature of your instructor, so don't wait until the last moment.  Taking a class Pass/Fail will not fulfill a GenEd, major, minor, GlobalEd, School/College or certificate requirement.  If you miss this deadline, you will have to petition for a late withdrawal and your request is not guaranteed.
