Dropping/Adding Courses

Enrollment Changes during the Nonrestrictive Drop/Add Period (Full Refunds for Dropped Courses)

For full-semester (16-week) courses, days 1 – 6 constitute the nonrestrictive drop/add period (full refund period). Intersession courses, short courses and other courses that do not extend through the entire semester follow proportionate drop/refund periods. See the Enrollment Guide and Short Course schedule for specific dates. Courses added during the nonrestrictive drop/add period will cause a tuition/fee recalculation that could affect whether a student pays the block rate for that semester. Full refunds are issued for courses dropped during the nonrestrictive drop/add period. 

Enrollment Changes during the Restrictive Drop/Add Period (Partial Refunds for Dropped Courses)

For full-semester (16-week) courses, days 7 – 10 constitute the restrictive drop/add period (partial refund period). Intersession courses, short courses and other courses that do not extend through the entire semester follow proportionate drop/refund periods. See the Enrollment Guide and Short Course schedule for specific dates. Courses added during the restrictive drop/add period will cause a tuition/fee recalculation that could affect whether a student pays the block rate for that semester. Partial refunds are issued for courses dropped during the restrictive drop/add period.

Enrollment Changes after the Restrictive Drop/Add Period (No Refunds for Dropped Courses)

Courses added after the first two weeks of a fall/spring semester (or after the applicable restrictive drop/add period) will cause a tuition/fee recalculation that could affect whether a student pays the block rate for that semester. Refunds are not provided for courses dropped/withdrawn after the restrictive drop period for a particular course, and block rate status is not affected by such drops.
