- If you are on academic probation, and you drop the course after census day of the semester, the dropped course is included in the number of semester hours allowed under probation.
- Dropping a course has Financial Aid implications. If you receive Financial Aid, please contact their office to discuss your plans.
- When you drop a course before the deadline, you will not receive a grade; the drop does not affect your GPA.
- If you drop a course after the Course Adjustment Period, it will appear on your transcript along with a "W" for Withdrawn.
- If you are dropping a course that is a prerequisite or co-prerequisite for another course you are registered for in a current or future semester, the drop will impact that subsequent course.
