W-Drop and P/F Deadline!!

The Mid-Semester date is Thursday, March 5th! This is the deadline to drop a class with a "W" or choose to take a course Pass/Fail.

Dropping a class with a "W" will not count against you. It will remain on your transcript, but you will not receive a grade and therefore your GPA will not be affected. The "W" indicated that the course was dropped after the Add/Drop period. Just make sure that you are not going below 12-credits, which is the necessary amount of credits to be considered full time. 

A course change form  with an instructor's signature is required to withdraw from a course, So make sure to get all of your paperwork taken care of before the deadline!

The mid-semester date is also the deadline for changing a class to Pass/Fail. Instead of dropping a class, Pass/Fail will allow you to remain in the class, but instead of receiving a letter grade, your transcript will indicate P (pass) or F (fail). Passing will not affect your GPA, but failing will. Keep in mind that P/F grading will not count toward Gen Eds, major or minor requirements, predictor courses etc.

A course change form is also necessary when changing a course to Pass/Fail, but an instructor's signature is not required.

You can pick up the necessary paperwork in Undergraduate Advising (if you're Undeclared) or the Registrar's Office  in 213 Whitmore.

All paperwork must be COMPLETED and submitted by 5:00 pm on Thursday!
