DROP or WITHDRAWAL For a Class

Drop: 

During the first week of Fall and Spring semester classes (known as Add/Drop or Registration Adjustment period) students can initiate a move in/out/between one or more classes on their own. The process is through BOSS, and does not require instructor or advisor approval. 

To drop an individual course during Registration Adjustment period:

  • Log into your BOSS account
  • Select Student Services from the options given
  • Click the Registration link from the menu
  • Click the Add/Drop Classes link from the menu
  • Select Drop from the drop-down menu next to the course(s) you wish to drop
  • Click the Submit Changes button at the bottom of the page

We recommend that any changes be discussed with Financial Aid and the department advisor to ensure that there are not unforeseen consequences.

Withdrawal: 

After Add/Drop, there is a window in which a student can withdraw from one class. After the withdrawal, transcripts will show a “W” next to the course title.  To drop an individual course after the Add/Drop period, use the following link: ttps://ualr.edu/records/drop-withdrawal-form/?_w3tc_nocache

After the deadline to drop an individual class, students may only be able to drop all their classes. This too happens through the link: https://ualr.edu/records/drop-withdrawal-form/?_w3tc_nocache

We recommend that any changes be discussed with Financial Aid and the department advisor to ensure that there are not unforseen consequences.

For any adjustment to the schedule (ADD/DROP, a W” in an individual or all classes) please check the academic calendar: https://ualr.edu/records/calendar/
