Retroactive Course Drop

Procedures to request a retroactive late course drop after the semester has ended.

The process is similar to that of a late course drop petition. Please schedule an appointment with an academic advisor to discuss this option and obtain the official retroactive late-drop petition form. Courses approved under the retroactive petition process will show as "W" on transcripts. A committee will review your petition and notify you of the decision within 2-3 weeks of the petition’s full submission. Permission to drop after the semester has ended is not automatic and will be granted only in extraordinary circumstances.
