Dropping a Course

Dropping a Course

Removing one or more (but not all) courses from your academic schedule or specific part of term is considered dropping a course. All course drops must be completed in BOSS. A grade of “W” will be received after the registration adjustment period has ended.


Removing all courses from your academic schedule or a specific part of term is considered a withdrawal.  A grade of “W” will be received for the final course from which you withdraw during the late registration/adjustment period and for all courses you withdraw from after the late registration period has ended.

How do I Drop/Withdraw?

You must make your request through BOSS. Drop/Withdrawal requests made through email or phone will not be accepted.
