Monday, April 13: Last day to drop courses with a "W"
As the add/drop period is now over, you can no longer drop courses without them still appearing on your transcript. If you are still signed up for a course you are no longer in, you'll want to be sure to complete a course drop form and submit it to Central Records before April 13. A "W" ("withdrawn") will appear on your transcript next to the course name. If you don't drop it by this date, you will receive a "no evaluation" notation for the course (which is equivalent to failing a course).
