After the initial add/drop period during the first week of the semester, students may no longer drop a course penalty-free. They may, however, still withdraw from the course until a set date mid-semester. Withdrawing from a course before the final day to withdraw free will not impact the student's GPA. There will simply be a 'W' on the academic transcript. The exact last date to withdraw is listed in the academic calendar for that semester, which can be found here
. Students may only withdraw from 16 credit hours during their undergraduate career.
If a student chooses to withdraw after the date listed in the academic calendar, they will receive a 'WF' on their transcript, which will
impact their GPA as if they received an 'F' in the course.
